Alongside our leading-edge expertise, clients can pick from a wide range of BCV funds, which regularly rank among the best in their categories.
BCV is a pioneer in the creation and management of investment funds. We manage around 60 funds covering the most important markets and main asset classes.
Our investment funds and discretionary mandates are managed by around 40 asset managers with specific areas of expertise:
Decisions are taken twice monthly, and tactical asset allocations are based on BCV's macroeconomic scenario. We allocate investments between asset classes on the basis of a top-down analysis. The investment approach is then harmonized using model portfolios. We use the core-satellite technique to control deviations from the benchmark investment universe and limit risk, making particular use of decorrelated management styles. Our high-quality operational structure means that the portfolios we manage show limited dispersion of returns.
Risk management and transparency are central to our investment process. We are looking to achieve stable long-term returns through a combination of investment techniques.
