The management objective is to offer a performance over the recommended investment period that is superior to that of its benchmark index while exhibiting low volatility and less than 5%. The financial management practiced is of the "Long / Short equity market neutral" type and is exercised through an active strategy of purchases and sales of shares selected according to a systematic process. Neutrality is ensured by the systematic use of futures contracts on the Nasdaq index, which is the universe chosen for this strategy.
