Roche-Brune AM has launched Capital Brain, a global equities fund which forms the first compartment of its Sicav domiciled in Luxembourg.
The fund is managed by Stéphane Fraenkel, recently appointed head of Global Equities at Roche-Brune AM, alongside Roland Grandi, co-portfolio manager global equities.
The Capital Brain strategy focuses on the assessment of immaterial assets held by companies through a proprietary tool relying on four pillars : fundamental financial indicators, extra financial criteria, segmentation between specific and systematic risks and relevance of immaterial assets held.
The fund is therefore mainly invested in geographic areas that are the most involved in innovation and digitalisation of the economy such as North America, Europe and Japan.
Minimum investment is €1,000 for retail investors and €10,000 for institutional investors.
The Capital Brain fund seeks to outperform the Stoxx Global 1800 EUR TR with lower volatility.
Roche-Brune AM, part of Primonial Investment Managers, had €286m of assets under management at end 2015.
