OP-Brave

An active portfolio manager making brave, not foolhardy investments

  • Better return through investing in the fund

    Offering a solution for long-term savings, OP-Brave is suitable for an investor who seeks high yields but is not afraid of temporary value fluctuations.

  • A fund for investment with a long-term horizon

    OP-Brave is suitable, for example, for saving money for retirement or bigger purchases.

  • Take advantage of owner-customer benefits

    As our owner-customer, you can buy, sell and switch OP-Brave fund units at no charge.  

A fund for stock investors

Most of the assets of OP-Brave are invested in the stock market, while a smaller portion goes to the bond market. This pushes the fund's risk level lower than for an equity fund. The comprehensive diversification, both geographically as well as into bond and stock markets, make OP-Brave an attractive alternative for those who do not want to actively monitor movements in the capital markets. When putting your money into OP-Brave, you can trust that professional portfolio managers follow constantly the markets and take the necessary measures, letting you focus on other things.

Even a small investment amount will result to wide diversification of the investment in a cost-efficient manner.

A fund for profit-seeking and patient investors

OP-Brave has high expected yield because it has higher equity weighting than the rest of our Saver's funds. This brings about higher exposure to market fluctuations than for funds emphasising fixed income. When investing in OP-Brave, you need to be ready to tolerate moments when the value of your fund units is going down. What you need to understand is that, in long-term investment, the time to cash in your fund units will come at another, more favourable moment. OP-Brave is best suited to a passive investor who intends to redeem his/her units after six years at the earliest. For short-term investing, we recommend funds with a more stable performance.

OP-Brave is a balanced fund investing its assets primarily in the global equity markets and partly in the global fixed-income markets.

In the base scenario, the fund invests 80% of its assets in equity markets and 20% in the fixed-income markets. The proportion of equity investments may range between 70–100% and fixedincome investments between 0–30%.

The fund's investments are primarily made through other investment funds. The fund may use derivatives instruments in its investment activities to hedge against market fluctuations, to replace direct investments and to otherwise promote efficient portfolio management. Primarily derivatives are used in equity and interest-rate risk management.

The Fund diversifies its investments on a broad basis among various companies and bonds, since the investments are mainly implemented using funds.

The Fund’s benchmark index is a combination of several indexes. The composition of the benchmark index is described in the fund prospectus. With active investing, the Fund seeks to outperform its benchmark index in the long term. The Fund mainly takes notable active risk and it may differ significantly from the composition, weights and risk level of the benchmark index.

The fund’s equity weighting is actively adjusted to control equity market risk and to capture yield opportunities. Derivative instruments can also be used especially to control equity risk and interest rate risk.
