OP-Brave is one of OP's three balanced funds enabling easy investing for savers. Most of its assets 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. Even a small investment amount will result to wide diversification of the investment in a cost-efficient manner. 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.

OP-Brave is ideal for those who have both guts and patience. The fund 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.

The risk appetite remained positive also in November since it looks like the accommodative monetary policy will continue. Global economic growth seems to have stabilised, too, after the summer's weakness. European economic figures indicate that growth is still on a moderately improving trajectory. In China, growth is mixed as consumers are doing well while manufacturing is still trapped between high overcapacity and poor demand. In Japan, the situation is very much the same. Although the US Federal Reserve has expressed a stronger desire to raise its interest rate for the first time since 2006, the cycle for tightening the monetary policy is believed to be moderate. At the same time, the ECB has strongly indicated its intent to increase stimulus, possibly by pushing its deposit rate even deeper into negative territory and by extending its current public sector purchase programme. Expectations are sky high and measures should be taken right away at the early December meeting in order to avoid a setback to sentiment. The capital market has warmly welcomed the ECB's message.

We went overweight equities after the correction in the stock market took place in late August. In early October and in November, we increased the overweight position further. In equities, we focus on Europe and Japan. In Japan we rely on upcoming additional stimulus, rising interest in Japanese stocks and corporate earnings growth potential. In Europe, we seek diversification and also have heightened emphasis on OP-Property, since low interest rates support the property sector. We also have a significant weight in OP-Europe Dividend Companies. New remarkable focus is set on OP-Europe Rising Stars, a fund investing in small and mid-cap companies. Tapping into the weak market, we raised our low weight in emerging markets. In global themes, we have chosen to focus on OP-Low-carbon World, a fund investing in lower carbon footprint companies building a responsible future. In fixed-income investments, we prefer corporate bonds over government bonds. In corporate bonds with high credit ratings, our focus on OP-US Corporate Bond has outperformed European corporate bonds in terms of running yield. In the portfolio, we have applied our view of strengthening dollar and weakening euro.

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.
