BBGI, your asset manager
The range of investment funds developed by BBGI Group covers the Swiss and international equity segments, the “energy”, “alternative energies” and “gold mines” investment themes, as well as commodities.
- BBGI Commodities (USD)
- BBGI Natural Resources Opportunity Equity (US)
- BBGI Share Alternative Energy (USD)
- BBGI Equities Switzerland Behavioral Value
- BBGI Swiss Physical Gold
The BBGI Commodities (USD) sub-fund’s objective is long-term growth through diversified investments in the commodities sector (energy, agriculture, metals, minerals, water).
The generation of a consistent alpha since the creation of our BBGI Commodities fund in 2005 is linked to our original approach combining sector allocation and tactical allocation between equity linked to commodities and commodities. This makes it possible to reduce the risk inherent in investments in commodities.
We seek to ensure optimal diversification between the four commodity segments based on medium-term investment opportunities. On the other hand, our approach includes a tactical allocation between investments in commodities (through ETFs) and equity investments in resource producers. Commodities thus keep an allocation in our fund at all times, while the investment committee may choose to grant a greater or lesser proportion to the shares of companies active in the commodities segment, depending on performance expectations.
The objective of the BBGI Swiss Physical Gold sub-fund consists primarily in obtaining long term growth comparable or better than that of physical gold, while limiting the volatility of the price of gold in the short term through active hedging strategies. Active management aims to limit losses in the event of a possible decline in the price of gold.
The custody of the assets of the sub-fund in the form of precious metals is guaranteed by the custodian bank or its sub-custodians, exclusively in Switzerland with a guarantee of segregation of the assets to the benefit of the sub-fund (non fungible).

This fund is actively managed by dynamically selecting the companies most likely to outperform the market according to the principles of behavioral economics. These principles are based on systematically filtering out securities which appear to be temporarily undervalued because of psychological and emotional market factors. Such factors can make the market under or overreact to positive or negative news regarding these companies or to other information liable to influence the price of shares.
