Our portfolios consist of ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds). An ETF is a type of financial instrument that replicates the performance of an index. The majority of ETFs reproduce a general index of the stock exchange (for example, the French CAC 40, the Belgian Bel 20 or the European Eurostock), or a sector index (eg agri-food in Europe). For example, when we buy an ETF that reproduces the CAC 40, it is as if we are buying a small proportion of each of the 40 companies that make up the CAC 40 - but at a much lower cost.

An ETF can replicate different types of assets such as stocks, bonds or commodities. Our experts use a careful combination of asset classes to create portfolios that match your risk profile.
