Risks of investment funds of third-party management companies

Investment funds are products that depend on fluctuations in market prices and other variables, so investment in these assets involves certain risks:

  • Credit risk: due to the quality of the assets in which it invests, as well as its issuers.
  • Market risk: the market risks are:
  • Interest rate risk: both price variations and the duration of the portfolio affect fixed income assets.
  • Exchange rate risk: Exchange rate fluctuation for assets denominated in currencies other than the reference interest rate.
  • Due to investment in variable income assets: Derived from variations in the share price.
  • Due to investment in emerging markets.
  • Due to investment in derivative financial instruments: operations are carried out with options on portfolio securities.
  • Liquidity risk: this may adversely affect the liquidity of the fund and/or the price conditions at which the fund may be forced to change its positions.

Know the available assets

These are the types of assets available to you when contracting third-party funds:

  • Monetary and Fixed Income. These funds invest in bonds and obligations issued by states and/or private companies. This type of investment allows you to choose from very short terms to longer terms and is suitable for clients who do not want to take a high risk.
  • Mixed/Profiled. These are funds that combine fixed and variable income in different proportions depending on the fund. You can choose more or less risk according to your investment objectives and can use them as a sole investment as they are widely diversified.
  • Variable Income. These are funds that invest in the shares of various companies. In general, the risk is higher than for fixed income funds but, in return, they offer potentially higher returns. They allow us to cover the various geographical areas and special topics.
  • Sector funds. Within the variable income funds we can choose special themes and the sectors that best fit the market moment.
  • Absolute Return/Alternative. These funds seek to obtain positive returns, regardless of market conditions. Very different techniques are used and they are very useful to complement the portfolios and reduce their risk.
