Leonteq announced today its collaboration with the financial content platform The Market, giving investors the opportunity to purchase a tracker certificate on “The Market Best Ideas Portfolio Index”.
This new Leonteq offering will enable investors to invest in the previously restricted “The Market Best Ideas Portfolio” consisting of promising, long-term investment themes, with a starting investment of CHF 100.
As a distinguished group of financial journalists reporting from the perspective of the investor, the editors of The Market focus on bringing their audiences big-picture, in-depth analysis on events from the corporate world and global financial markets. When selecting portfolio components, quality and long-term outlook are The Market team’s primary focus. In line with this approach, “The Market Best Ideas Portfolio” consists of 70% quality stocks and 30% risk positions with all positions selected based on qualitative and quantitative analysis and screening along criteria primarily including stable returns on capital margins, sustainable development of dividends, solid balance sheet with minimal debt and the quality of the company’s governing bodies and market position. Between 20 and 40 stocks are included in the portfolio, geographically focused on Switzerland, but complemented by up to 30% international equities, largely in technology, commodities and energy.
Mark Dittli, Founding Partner and Editor in Chief of The Market, commented: “Since its launch in March 2020 at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, “The Market Best Ideas Portfolio” has performed increasingly well with a 49.9% gain in total return. Now, ten months later, we couldn’t be more excited to extend our portfolio offering by means of a tracker certificate issued by one of the leading technology and service providers for structured products.”
Lukas Ruflin, CEO at Leonteq, stated: “We are pleased to collaborate with The Market to offer investors the ability to purchase a tracker certificate on “The Market Best Ideas Portfolio Index”. As a portfolio composed of quality stocks and backed by sound investment recommendations from financial experts, Leonteq sees true potential in this investment opportunity.”
