Why Convictions?

In 2008, we created the BDL Convictions fund to manage our own savings in the tax framework of the PEA. The management team of BDL Capital Management has been investing for over 15 years with the same management philosophy: to earn money while being vigilant with our and your wealth. BDL Convictions takes up ideas for the purchase of the BDL Rempart Europe long / short fund created in 2005.

Our investment strategy

Our 11 analysts scrutinise company accounts without any bias in terms of style, method or benchmark. They meet over 1,500 companies each year. They get out and about to expand their view of each industry, and identify the best managers.

 Why has performance been so good in the past? 

The BDL Convictions fund greatly benefits from our Long/Short expertise. We pay the utmost care and attention to business models, and invest in the best companies when they are at the right price. The portfolio is concentrated on our strongest long convictions: between 30 and 50 investments on average.

European equities account for at least 75% of the fund's net assets. The fund may hold cash when market conditions are deemed unfavourable.

This fund can be used in association with a PEA or life insurance policy.

BDL Capital Management has decided to keep the fund in the French equity savings plan (PEA)despite the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union (Brexit).

Investors’ attention is drawn to the funds’ risk factors, in particular equity risk and the risk of capital loss.
