CPR Invest Global Silver Age aims to capitalize on a promising theme, the ageing of the population, by investing in high-potential companies.
It aims to outperform the global equity markets over a minimum five-year investment horizon by investing in companies that serve seniors, whose percentage of the population is rising constantly.
THE AGEING OF THE POPULATION: A MAJOR SOCIAL CHALLENGE
The ageing of the population is already a reality, and this demographic phenomenon will inevitably accelerate in the coming decades. It offers an opportunity to develop new products and services.
To cite one example, in the last 18 years, companies whose business is related to the ageing population have achieved average revenue and earnings growth that has outperformed the global market(1). This trend is expected to gather strength.

ACTIVE AND CONVICTION-BASED MANAGEMENT
Within a universe of about 615 companies related to the ageing of the population, the managers apply a demanding fundamentals-based selection to keep only about 140 of them in the portfolio. Similarly, the strong responsiveness of sector exposures is a major source of the fund’s added value.
