Fund description

investment policy

MercLin Institutional Equity Fund DBI-RDT (sub-fund of MercLin Institutional Fund) meets the requirements imposed by the applicable regulations to benefit from the Definitively Taxed Income regime (DBI-RDT): the sub-fund distributes at least 90% of the received income, after deducting salaries, commissions and charges. The company-shareholder can – as of income year 2018 – deduct 100% from the taxable basis of the income distributed by the sicav resulting from dividends or from capital gains on shares, which meet the requirements of the DBI-RDT deduction. The fund follows the equity strategies of the MercLin Global Equity fund.

Risk indicator

Lower risk
Potentially lower rewards
Does not mean a risk-free investment

Higher risks
Potentially higher rewards

The value of an investment in a sub-fund increases or decreases over time. At the time of resale, the price of your shares may be less than the original price, representing a loss. If you invest in a sub-fund whose currency is different from your own, exchange rate fluctuations can also reduce your gains or increase your losses.

The above risk level is calculated on the basis of the sub-fund’s volatility over the medium term (i.e. on the basis of actual changes in its value over the last five years or on a simulation, if the subfund was created within that period). The volatility of the sub-fund may increase or decrease over time, which may change its risk level.

The subfund’s risk level reflects the following factor(s):
Equity investments have greater volatility and higher risk than investments in bonds and money market instruments. The risk level does not reflect the potential impact of unusual market conditions or unforeseen events that may increase risk or trigger other risks such as:


  • Counterparty risk: the subfund can lose money as a result of the failure of a market player with which it does business.
  • Credit risk: risk associated with bonds becoming worthless when the issuer of the bond is not able to repay its debt on maturity.
  • Liquidity risk: some financial securities may be impossible to sell quickly at a given time or may have to be sold at a discount.
  • Management risk: under abnormal market conditions, the usual management techniques may be ineffective or unfavourable.
  • Operating risk: in any market, and especially in the emerging markets, the subfund may lose some or all of its money if there is a failure in the custody of assets or in case of fraud, corruption, political actions or any other adverse event.
