Market inefficiencies in Europe offer many investment opportunities for active managers on the equity and credit markets.
Our strategy aims to benefit from these inefficiencies through a high-conviction equity portfolio with an opportunistic approach, benchmark agnostic and with no geographical or market cap constraints.
This strategy is accessible through the DECALIA European Conviction fund.
Quest for yield
Our multi-asset strategies aim to deliver absolute return by combining different asset classes, such as debt securities, equities and other funds.
Benchmark agnostic, the investment style is opportunistic, flexible and pragmatic.
These multi-asset strategies are accessible through two different funds: DECALIA Active Allocation, more focused on capital growth, and DECALIA Conservative, which has a lower risk profile.
We also offer a “Long/Short Equity” strategy which aims to deliver absolute returns through long and short positions in equities worldwide (with a neutral point at 130/30).
This strategy is applied in the DECALIA Muse fund.
New consumer trends
We have developed three original strategies which address the major changes in consumer trends that we are witnessing today: the coming of age of the “Millennials” generation, inevitable transition to “Circular economy” and the ageing of the population.
With some two billion people, the “Millennials” generation (also called “Generation Y”) represents an enormous market which, through its new values system and a different consumption habits, represents a major challenge for the traditional players in the economy, but is also a unique opportunity for the companies that know how to address their aspirations.
Our Circular Economy strategy, the world’s first equity fund dedicated to this new paradigm, invests in companies that will structurally benefit from the Circular Economy. The circular economy looks at all the options across the value chain: circular supplies, resource recovery, product life extension, sharing platforms, product as a service.
Our “Silver Generation” strategy invests in European mid to large cap companies that benefit from the long-term trend of the ageing of the population. Investments focus on the following themes: Health & Wellness, Leisure & Pleasure, Security, Financial services. Sector allocation is based on a assessment of the relative growth prospects of the identified themes.
These three strategies are implemented in the DECALIA Millennials , DECALIA Circular Economy and DECALIA Silver Generation funds.
Disintermediation in the banking sector
In order to play the trend towards disintermediation of the banking sector in Europe, DECALIA has cooperated with several partners. Those are specialised in corporate lending, private debt or in non-bank real estate debt solutions.
These strategies are developed through a series of illiquid products.
In 2019 DECALIA launched a credit strategy fund managed in-house by a team specialised in this field: DECALIA Private Credit Strategies.
