Finding the right balance of shares and bonds for our clients …

…this is the chief objective of our investment strategies 2 & 3 (income + growth).

The Genève-Invest-Concept has a strong focus on value investing in promising quality shares and corporate bonds with the best risk/return ratio.

The Genève-Invest-Concept

Value investing + megatrend focus in promising quality shares
Corporate higher-yielding bonds with the best risk/return ratio
Value investing approach (according to Munger) + megatrends: companies with long-term and overlapping transformation processes, which concern social and technological changes
Systematic focus on niche themes and special events
Growing markets, such as technology, health, digitalization and online consumption
A continuous and foreseeable flow of income
Firms need to be active in growing markets and have a technological advantage over their competitors
Legal protection for bondholders: focus on institutional and secured senior bonds
Proven (audited) strong performance results
Predictability & transparent communication with the corporate management
Searching for permanent competitive advantages and moat (protective wall)a
Less fluctuation in value than shares and benefits of effective diversification
Focus on companies that achieve high margins and a high return on total capital
Fixed high-interest coupons & reduction of yield curve risk
Anti-cyclical actions
Additional income by exploiting the yield curve effect

The aim of our balanced strategy is to track equity market performance when markets are rising and limit losses by 30 to 50% when markets are falling. Main performance drivers are shares of high quality global companies. The bond component serves both as a buffer to cushion the downside risk during times of crisis and as another performance driver. This is achieved through targeted bond picking with a target interest yield of around 5% to 7%. A buffer is provided by short-dated bonds, which hardly correlate with falling stock markets. Additional price gains are achieved by investing in undervalued bonds and long-dated bonds. Thanks to its balanced investment strategy, our mixed fund has been able to achieve a total return of 160% since 2012, which corresponds to around 10.60% per year (data as of July 2021).

Investment strategy: Corporate bonds

In the fixed-income area, we focus on niche themes and special events that lead to higher interest rates or bond yields. These are, for example, initial issues, bonds with an issue volume of less than EUR 100 million or without a rating from the three major rating agencies. Special events are crises that offer increased potential for opportunities, such as the EU sovereign debt crisis, currently the severe recession caused by Corona, and so-called Fallen Angels.

Security elements for risk management:

1

Reduction of yield curve risk: maturities are on average less than four years.

Investment strategy: Equities

The equity investment strategy is based on the value investing approach, according to Munger. The focus is on high-quality global companies that have competitive advantages over their rivals. This moat (protective wall) allows companies to achieve high margins and thus a high return on total capital. The competitive advantages can be long-term patents or licenses, high exchange fees, or a strong brand. Interesting are companies that are active in growing markets and have a technological advantage over their competitors. We find these companies primarily in the fields of technology, health, digitalization and online consumption.
