Wells Fargo lanciert US Select Equity Fund

Wells Fargo Asset Management gibt die Lancierung der stilneutralen US All-Cap Strategie "US Select Equity Fund" bekannt - die Strategie wird von Fondsmanager Richard Weiss bereits seit 1996 in Form von institutionellen Mandaten verwaltet: Markets | 10.03.2015 11:55 Uhr

The investment approach for the U.S. Select Equity Fund, a new sub-fund for the Luxembourg-domiciled Wells Fargo (Lux) Worldwide Fund, is a style-neutral, all-cap strategy. The fund will invest principally in the equity securities of approximately 30 to 40 US companies, of any market capitalisation, that the team believes will offer the potential for capital growth. Mr. Weiss has employed the U.S. Select Equity strategy in institutional separate accounts since its inception in December 1996. 

Ludger Peters, managing director, international business development, Wells Fargo Asset Management: 

“We are pleased to offer U.S. Select Equity to our growing international client base and to diversify our product lineup by adding a fund with substantial exposure to US securities across the market capitalisation spectrum. Led by a proven veteran manager, we believe this opportunity will reach capacity very quickly”.

The fund’s investment process is based on Mr. Weiss’s decades-old private market value (PMV) concept—that is, the price that an acquirer would be willing to pay for an entire company. The portfolio management team determines a company's PMV by:

-) Conducting a fundamental analysis of a company's cash flows, asset valuations, competitive situation and industry-specific factors.

-) Gauging the company's management strength, financial health and growth potential. Emphasis is placed on a company's management, with meetings conducted with management in certain situations. The team focuses on the long-term strategic direction of a company. 

The team then compares the PMV, as determined by these factors, with the company's public market capitalisation and invests in the equity securities of those companies in which they feel there is a significant gap between the two. 

At least two-thirds of the fund’s total assets will be invested in equity securities of US companies and up to one-third in equity securities of non-US issuers through depositary receipts as well as equities denominated in US dollars issued by non-US issuers. Futures, forward contracts, options or swap agreements, as well as other derivatives, may be used for hedging or efficient portfolio management purposes. 

Although the fund is benchmark agnostic, the fund will be compared with a dual benchmark of the Russell 2000® Index and the S&P 500 Index. 

The fund will be registered in the majority of jurisdictions where Wells Fargo Asset Management’s fund range is currently active. The fund will be available in retail and institutional share classes, with expected total expense ratios of 1.95% and 1.25%, respectively.
