This algorithm is the most aggressive investment strategy within the fund and is based on fundamentals, while timing is triggered by certain criteria which are set internally. It uses leverage of up to 1:5. The long term strategy, which makes up 50%-60% of the portfolio, is focused almost exclusively on Romanian fixed income and equities listed on the Bucharest Stock Exchange.
