Groupama Asset Management celebrates 5 years of successful thematic investment​​​​​​​

With the recent renaming of its thematic fund G Fund – Global Disruption, Groupama Asset Management, one of the leaders in active fund management in France, is clearly affirming its strategy aimed at identifying disruptive companies that are experiencing accelerated growth on the strength of long-term trends.

Launched in 2018, G Fund - Global Disruption, formerly G Fund – World (R)Evolutions, is a global equity fund investing in disruptive companies that are transforming their sector in one of three ways:

  • Creating a new market,
  • Transforming an existing market,
  • Or transforming themselves to attain - or regain - a position as leader.

By investing in these companies., G Fund - Global Disruption aims to reap the benefits of the mega-trends shaping our society - digitization, innovation in healthcare, increasing scarcity of resources, environmental and demographic challenges and changing consumer spending patterns.

Stock picking for the fund is essentially based on a combination of quantitative analysis and fundamental financial and extra-financial analysis.  The result is a conviction-based portfolio that focuses on 30 to 60 stocks, without constraints of geographical location or sector.

The fund recently celebrated its 5 years of existence. During this time, it has outperformed1 its benchmark index2 and has demonstrated its resilience and the quality of its securities.  In 2023, the performance1 of the fund’s NC share class was 24.81% (compared to 19.60% for its benchmark2). It is one of the best funds in its Global Equity category, thus validating its management philosophy.  Top decile over 5 years, Morningstar Category Global Large-Cap Growth Equity3.

We target companies having a strategy that tends to meet a new need or to find a news response to an existing need. Consequently, the innovation may be progressive as well as disruptive. And we search for this innovation in every sector and country, with the aim of diversifying our portfolio and calibrating  it according to the estimated risk-return trade of each investmeent.

~~~~~~

Th main risks of the fund are:

Capital risk: There is no guarantee of a  full return on the original capital invested.

Equity risk: investors should note that by its thematic nature this Subfund is tied to the global equity markets. Consequently, changes in global share values can have a negative impact on the net asset value of the Subfund.

Foreign exchange risk: foreign exchange risk corresponds to the risk of a fall in the value of the various currencies of the securities held in the portfolio relative to the Subfund reference currency (USD). This means that any depreciation of the currencies of the Subfund ‘s investments relative to the USD can have a negative impact on the net asset value of the Subfund. Foreign exchange risk exists due to the fact that the assets of the Subfund may be preponderantly exposed to securities or UCIs denominated in currencies other than the USD. Shares or share classes in a currency other than the Subfund reference currency (USD) may have a higher exchange rate risk because they are denominated in a different currency to the Subfund’s asset valuation currency. Consequently, exchange rate fluctuations may cause the net asset value of this share category to fall despite appreciation of the assets in the Subfund .

Sustainability risks: Sustainability risks, as identified in the List of Major ESG Risks (Environmental, Social and Governance) and the Coal Policy are taken into account in the fund management decisions. The emergence of a sustainability risk can have multiple and varied impacts, depending on the specific nature of the risk, the region concerned and the asset class. As a general rule, if a sustainability risk appears it will have a negative impact on the asset in question or will even cause a total loss of asset value.
