The strategy is based on the three generic sources of income (risk premiums, tactics and alpha) – L3 in the fund name stands for this. A more even weighting of the income sources and the use of different independent strategy components (internal and external) results in a significantly greater diversification potential compared with classic balanced or multi-asset approaches. The higher Sharpe ratio expected as a result and better behaviour in phases of negative risk premiums are key elements of the strategy. The fund typically lies within a volatility range of 4-5% and aims for an expected return of 4-6% above the Euribor (1M).
