SICAV registered in the Netherlands, was ranked best fund in the Netherlands

Maximizing return with limited risk

In today's record-low interest rates environment,OYSTER Absolute Return EUR
provides investors with a compelling alternative to their bond allocation and
offers a low-risk building block in their absolute return portfolio. With a
strong focus on risk control, the strategy invests in an allocation of
traditional asset classes (cash, bonds, equities, derivatives), as well as in
a diversified and liquid alternative investment bucket (maximum 10%).OYSTER
Absolute Return EUR
has been managed since inception by SYZ Asset Management's Multi-Asset
investment team headed by Fabrizio Quirighetti, responsible for the overall
asset allocation and the top-down preferences in the fixed income and equity
buckets.

The objective of the fund is to maximize returns within a definite risk budget
of 2% monthly VaR (95%) or a targeted volatility below 3.5%, through a
dynamic asset allocation. While the overall asset allocation is pretty stable
due to tight and disciplined risk budgeting, the buckets are actively
managed. The investment approach is comprehensive, transparent, with a focus
on liquidity and capital preservation.

«Our absolute return strategy can be seen as an unconstrained bond portfolio
with a limited equity "spice". We have adopted a holistic, pragmatic and
opportunistic approach that places the highest emphasis on capital
preservation. Our very senior and stable investment team is a strong factor
in the consistency of our results.
» commented Fabrizio Quirighetti, CIO and responsible for the overall asset
allocation.

Expertise in a wide range of strategies

Already well known for its European equities franchise, SYZ Asset Management
demonstrates with these awards its strong expertise outside the pure equity
universe. Indeed, the European Corporate Bonds and Dynamic Allocation
strategies managed by SYZ Asset Management have also received several awards
in Europe in the past years.

« We are particularly proud of this award as it recognizes our philosophy of
active and opportunistic management focused on performance, across a wide
range of high added value strategies
» commented Xavier Guillon, CEO of OYSTER Funds.
