Alternative investments (long-term investment horizon):

Prosperity Active Commodity fund

The Prosperity Active Commodity fund is an experienced investor fund that was launched in 2006 under Gibraltar law. It invests actively in the international commodity markets, primarily by way of exchange traded futures and options but also by means of Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and certificates. Because of its low correlation with the bond and equity markets, this fund is a good instrument for risk diversification. The Prosperity Active Commodity fund is designed for inclusion in traditional portfolios to offset equity and bond market risk and to bring higher risk-adjusted performance for the portfolio as a whole. The weighting of the sectors (precious metals, ferrous metals, energy, agriculture) depends on fundamental assessments. At present, up to 50% of the portfolio is invested in precious metals. Preparations are under way to convert the gold portion into physical gold bars. The segments of ferrous metals, energy and agricultural goods make up the remaining 50% of the fund and are individually capped at 30% of the total portfolio. The entry and exit points are determined on the basis of fundamental and technical analysis. The investment ratio fluctuates between 80% and 100%.

Prosperity Futures profit participation certificate

The Prosperity Futures profit participation certificate was issued in 2001 under United Kingdom\'s law. The taxation of these profit participation certificates changed in 2003. The certificates were therefore closed to new subscriptions. The advantage of this is that Prosperity Futures is tax free for private investors after one year and one day. The investment style of Prosperity Futures can be described as trend following or as a managed futures strategy with a very broad trading spectrum. It is not a traditional hedge fund.

Managed futures are still a relatively undiscovered asset class that enables investors to profit from over 150 financial and commodities markets, regardless of whether the prices are rising or falling. Management is handled by Superfund Trading Management Inc. This firm uses fully automated computer trading systems that function without outside intervention. Trading is restricted to a group of over 100 liquid futures and commodities exchanges in the USA, Europe and Asia. The sophisticated systems have been tested and proven over many years and are designed to recognise trends on the respective markets, whereby rising and falling trends can be used. Managed futures providers are also subject to supervision by the strictest regulatory authorities in the world (such as the SEC, CFTC, NFA and FINRA in the USA). This strict regulation is the reason for the financial stability of this asset class.

Prosperity Vorsorge Plus fund

Prosperity Vorsorge Plus is a §20a investment fund that was issued in 2005 according to United Kingdom\'s law. Prosperity Vorsorge Plus is a mixed fund with a target structure of 70% bonds and 30% equities and is actively managed. The product has a 97% peak value preservation feature based on a value-at-risk approach. This value protection is applied permanently and is adjusted dynamically, eliminating the need for a long minimum holding period. When prices are on the rise, this peak value protection is adjusted upward continuously, and it remains stable when prices are falling. This is an innovative alternative to conservative, purely benchmark oriented investments. The objective of the fund is to generate higher returns than a traditional bond investment over the medium to long term.

Equity funds (long-term investment horizon):

Prosperity Special Opportunities fund

Prosperity Special Opportunities is a §20a investment fund that was issued in 2006 according to United Kingdom\'s law. The fund invests primarily in individual equities and can invest up to 100% of its assets in stocks. The cash portion of the portfolio can also be as much as 100%. The investment philosophy of Prosperity Special Opportunities is based on the targeted selection of especially promising sectors, themes and countries. The management (consisting of the asset management team and external consultants) is currently focusing on stable themes such as healthcare (without pharmaceuticals), security (without armaments), agriculture, infrastructure and energy (especially sustainable). The long-term objective of the fund is to maintain an investment ratio of 90 to 100%, though the investment ratio may be substantially lower in times of crisis like in 2008 and 2009. The fund has a long-term approach, as its performance can be volatile over the short term. It is not oriented towards any benchmark because the stocks that it selects do not necessarily reflect a stock market as indices do. The sectors, themes and countries are chosen in accordance with our current assessments. The foreign currency exposure may be hedged depending on the market conditions. The fund may hold derivative instruments for hedging purposes.
