London, United Kingdom, June 02, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- The gains were primarily attributed to the timely divestiture of RIM stock, with a simultaneous buy-up of Apple shares. The exclusive fund which contained a basket of the globe’s hottest tech stocks had a minimum investment level of US$100,000. Block purchases by established clients and institutional investors including several major pension funds made up the lion’s share of fund holders.
The fund was also unique in that it held a mixture of recent IPO’s as well as ‘blue chip’ tech stocks that are typically difficult to acquire in significant quantities. The fund managers utilize a strategy of capitalization-weighted earnings to price ratio in combination with exhaustive analysis on global technology trends. This enabled the fund to drop RIM and increase Apple holdings and an ideal time this spring.
There are no immediate plans for additional purchase opportunities with this fund. Fund managers are constricted by the availability of additional quality tech shares to purchase worldwide. Clients are advised to contact their registered representative to assess the suitability of this investment for their portfolio in the event more units come available.
