Why invest with Charles Bridge?

Investment process
Unique strategy

Very few standard instruments allow investors to earn when markets are stagnating or falling. Our fund applies just such a strategy to ensure income even during periods of market uncertainty.

Protecting capital
Conservative approach

We are aggressive in thought but conservative in style. We are willing to sacrifice income in order to protect capital from serious decline. We primarily use sophisticated option strategies in order to reach these goals.

Availability of funds
Monthly liquidity

Although we recommend long-term investment, in order for the client to eliminate volatility and earn on long-term investment ideas our client investments are fully liquid on a monthly basis. Moreover, if the investment is held for three years, profit is tax exempt.

Targeted fund performance

Throughout the lifetime of the fund, performance will naturally fluctuate depending on market development, as well as strategy success.

In the long run, and across the economic cycle, our strategies should yield 4-6% per year.

independent strategy
We use our own independent investment strategies which have successfully undergone extensive market correction testing. Historically, we have achieved attractive appreciation and, therefore, we employ the high-water mark performance fee, i.e. our share of profits is paid only if a new maximum is reached for the client.

We take capital protection very seriously. That is why, in our investment strategy, we surrender excess revenues to protect our portfolio against high losses.

Whether investment in Charles Bridge GMF is right for you?

Investment in the Charles Bridge fund is particularly suitable for investors who want to diversify their portfolios. The added value of the fund is fully revealed in a nervous market environment, as the fund has the unique function of capital protection, with only partial participation in strong market growth, but also with decline limitation.

Why invest right now?

The classic investment mix (current accounts, bonds, stocks) is currently under threat from the policies of central banks. Interest rates are at technical zero, and even in the negative spectrum in some countries, which makes the future function of portfolio bonds unclear. The Global Macro Fund thus becomes the perfect complement to the classic portfolio, due to its capability of being profitable even under volatile (demanding) conditions. Alternative assets are gaining popularity with asset administrators and now account for more than 20% of the composition of portfolios.

When can you enter the fund and under what conditions can you withdraw?

You can always enter the fund at the end of the calendar month. Because the fund uses exclusively publicly tradable instruments with high liquidity, clients are able to withdraw from the fund free of charge at the end of each month. Monthly liquidity is a great advantage compared to other alternative funds, where the investor is often penalized for withdrawing earlier than after 5-7 years. Our recommended investment horizon is 3 years.
