OYSTER - European Corporate Bonds

ranked Number 1 in the Netherlands over 10 years

Geneva, 28 April 2015. A sub-fund of theOYSTER
SICAV registered in the Netherlands,OYSTER - European Corporate Bonds EUR
fund was ranked best fund in the Netherlands over 10 years by Lipper in the
"Bond Euro - Corporates" category.OYSTER
SICAV is a Luxembourg domiciled UCITS managed by SYZ Asset Management
(Luxembourg) SA, a member of the SYZ Asset Management division. This accolade
underlines the breadth of winning strategies offered by SYZ Asset Management
division, which is already well-known for its European equities franchise.
Indeed, in the past, Absolute Return and Dynamic Allocation funds managed by
SYZ Asset Management division have received several awards in Europe.

Top-performing corporate bond strategy

Managed by SYZ Asset Management (division, theOYSTER - European Corporate
Bonds EUR
fund has been advised since inception by Andrea Garbelotto, Head of Fixed
Income at Banca ALBERTINI SYZ SpA, the Italian bank of the SYZ Group.OYSTER -
European Corporate Bonds EUR
is actively managed through a conviction portfolio mainly focused on European
investment grade securities. The fund follows a "top-down" approach, with a
fundamental macroeconomic scenario driving the allocation by quality
(rating), sectors, countries and seniority. In the current environment the
fund is offering an attractive extra yield by mainly being overweight in
subordinated instruments and BBB names.

«These outstanding results are based on an active investment strategy with an
opportunistic approach. The outperformance comes from actively combining
macro-economic forecasts, bond selection and duration management in our
investment decision process.
» commented Andrea Garbelotto, the fund's advisor.

«
Technical factors will remain the key drivers of credit markets' performance
in 2015. Amid expectations of modest Eurozone growth in 2015, rising
geopolitical tensions and deflationary risks, the ECB's monetary policy
continues to be expansive, in contrast to an increasingly hawkish Fed, which
looks set to enter a rate-hike cycle in mid-2015. The size of the programme
is at levels that more than balances the expected net issue of government
bonds over the next two years, and, in our view, will contribute
significantly to the efforts being made to guarantee the sustainability of
public debt in higher-risk countries. In this context, we are positive on the
European credit markets in 2015 and we prefer BBB-rated bonds, financial,
subordinated&hybrids, as well as long-term maturities (5-10Y)
», added Andrea Garbelotto, the fund's advisor.

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, in the past, Absolute Return and Dynamic Allocation funds
managed by SYZ Asset Management have received several awards in Europe.

« We are particularly proud of this award as it recognizes our philosophy of
active and opportunistic management focused on performance
» commented Xavier Guillon, CEO of OYSTER Funds.
