Phitrust Active Investors France is a shareholder engagement investment fund invested in French securities with the aim of outperforming the CAC40 index (dividends reinvested) subject to a maximum annual tracking error of 4%. A quantitative methodology for processing extra-financial information obtained as part of shareholder engagement initiatives is applied.

Annual performance

Track record

■ As from July 1st, 2013, the CAC 40 index was calculated net dividends reinvested.
■ Past performances have no bearing on future performances and are not consistent over time.

Financial strategy

The open-end investment company Phitrust Active Investors France is said to have “extended index management” and will thus make use of the exemptions provided for by the regulations. The open-end investment company is typically invested in equities included in the CAC40 index. The portfolio consists exclusively of shares of European companies listed in Paris. The purpose of the open-end investment company is to replicate the Index by purchasing securities in similar proportions and with constant monitoring of changes in the composition of the reference index.

The portfolio is made up of at least 90% of Eurozone equities. The UCITS (open-end investment company) will therefore apply its quantitative management methodology for extra-financial information processing by respecting an annual tracking error of up to 4% or 20% of the volatility of the CAC40 index. The processing of this information will be done in three steps: taking into account the main governance events of the companies of the CAC40 index, the quantification and analysis of the impact of these governance events, and a strategic allocation that leads the over/underweighting of each security of the open-end investment company and the selection of an optimal portfolio.

Extra-financial strategy

Studies have shown that progress in governance ultimately leads to better valuation of companies. Conversely, failures in the governance within large European companies have weighed heavily on their market valuation. The open-end investment company therefore seeks to identify the progress in governance and the initiatives that could be taken with portfolio companies to improve their governance and ultimately their market valuation.

The open-end investment company has defined its own governance referential based in particular on the principles adopted by large institutional investors and the majority of published standards. A Technical Committee comprising the manager and the proxy advisory firm Proxinvest proposes to the Board of Directors of the open-end investment company the governance improvement initiatives that could be implemented with the portfolio companies. The Board of Directors of the open-end investment company decides on the choice of these initiatives in order to maintain a constructive and lasting dialogue with the directors of these companies.
