Phaidros Funds Balanced combines equity, bond, and money market elements into a single portfolio. The equity exposure can fluctuate between 25% and 75% of the fund’s assets (that is, this fund is a mixed fund that allows German investors a partial tax exemption of 15%). We identify long-term investments predicated on solid and quantifiable ideas – with the aim of achieving an adaptable portfolio characterized not only by its robustness and liquidity, but also by its broad diversification strategy and resilience across the board.
The success of Phaidros Funds Balanced is the result of our efforts to strike the right balance between risk and return in order to achieve performance that is both attractive and long-term in scope.
- Broad diversification through flexible investment in various asset classes such as government, corporate, and convertible bonds; stocks; real estate stocks; and commodities
- Focus on capital preservation without benchmarking
- Right balance between risk and return
- The NAV and the income generated can rise or fall, among other things, in response to movements on the capital markets. By extension, this means that the share price can fall to a level below your original investment and/or that the fund fails to meet its investment objectives.
- For hedging purposes, the fund can invest in financial derivatives that are regarded as especially high-risk and volatile. In this case, drastic upward and downward changes in value are possible over the short-term.
- The fund can invest a portion of its assets in bonds. Under certain circumstances, bond issuers may become insolvent, which in turn may lead to the bonds’ suffering complete or partial losses in value.
- Because the fund invests in bonds, changes in interest rates can impact the value of the fund both positively and negatively..
- Foreign currency investments are subject to exchange rate fluctuations.
- Investments in emerging markets come with increased risk..

Past performance is not indicative of future results. The gross value performance (BVI method) takes into account all costs incurred at the fund level (such as management fees, transaction costs, performance-based fees); the net value performance also takes into account possible front-end loads.
Additional costs may be incurred at the individual client level (such as custodian account fees, commissions, and other fees). Sample (net) model calculation, assuming a maximum front-end load of 4%: you, an investor, would like to buy EUR 1,000.00 in shares. With a maximum front-end load of 4%, you would be required to pay a one-time fee of EUR 40.00 at the time of purchase. In addition, you may incur custodian account fees, which will reduce performance and be based on your bank’s list of prices and services. To determine the maximum front-end load of the sub-fund’s share class, please see the cost details presented in the FUND DETAILS section of the website

MiFID II product information
As of 3 January 2018, investment services companies that offer investment services falling within the purview of Directive 2014/65/EU (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive – “MiFID II”) must comply with certain new requirements regarding the distribution of investment funds, as those requirements are implemented through the legislation enacted by each of the individual Member States of the European Union.
Under the new rules, investment services companies are required to identify or to review and to specify more precisely the target market for each financial instrument they sell. These new rules require, therefore, that these companies specify the type(s) of clients with whose needs, characteristics, and objectives the financial instrument is compatible. MiFID II also introduces new cost disclosure requirements designed to increase cost transparency for investors at both the quantitative and the qualitative levels. Accordingly, investment services companies are required to disclose to the client any and all relevant costs: that is, both in terms of the investment services and in terms of the product. These costs must be summarized and made available both ex ante (that is, prior to any product purchase by the client) and ex post during the holding period on at least an annual basis.
Phaidros Funds’ capital management company, IPConcept (Luxembourg), supports this process by providing the relevant data to the investment services companies to enable them to meet their new legal obligations.
