Whether for our funds or our institutional investment mandates, DECALIA has chosen to focus on four promising investment themes:
- Market inefficiencies
- Quest for yield
- New consumer trends
- Disintermediation in the European banking sector
This expertise is available either through DECALIA’s investment funds or by way of segregated investment mandates.
In addition to the 4 strategies developed by DECALIA SA, DECALIA Asset Management SIM specialises in Theme Investing.
Our “Theme Investing” strategy dynamically focuses on 8-12 long term and uncorrelated investment themes, selected after a thorough analysis of macro-economic trends – whether actual or potential – in different sectors of the economy. Investment themes can be industrial, geographical or macroeconomic. For each theme, we opportunistically select financial instruments (equities, bonds, derivatives, funds, hedge funds. ETFs) worldwide that offer the best long-term risk-return perspectives.
As we invest with a medium to long term perspective, we adopt a “patient” attitude when we buy or sell. This allows us to wait until prices overestimate or underestimate the individuated underlying economic trends of each theme. We occasionally hedge our risk exposure and regularly hedge currency exposure.
This strategy is implemented in the Thema Fund.
