FDE is an active, research-oriented, discretionary manager which does not depend on \"Value\" or \"Growth\" stock market modes as they may prove unsuitable in certain market conditions. The firm’s fund managers perform fundamental and technical analysis, aiming to optimize selection of the best stocks. The selected companies combine both solid fundamentals and an attractive valuation and are likely to be a positive catalyst in the near future. In addition, in order to optimize the risk /reward ratio, the technical analysis allows them to determine appropriate entry and exit points. For their diversified funds, the team prioritizes risk management in seeking outperformance. They focus on preserving invested capital, o obtaining alpha, the search for a lower volatility than their benchmark and the desire to display a \"bear resistance\" during the adverse phases of the markets. To do this, derivatives are used to hedge the assets under management and reduce the risks borne by the investor. For their fixed-income investments, FDE makes their investment decisions based on in-house credit analysis. They created the FDE Alpha fund to address the issue of euro funds with yields close to 0, aiming to select funds that regularly outperform their benchmarks while covering downside risk by selling index futures.
