Longchamp Equity Dividend Europe 2028 Fund
The Longchamp Longchamp Equity Dividend Europe 2028 Fund’s objective is to take advantage of the long term dividend maturities discount in Europe.
Indeed, dividend markets often present significant discounts that are misaligned with the strong fundamentals of selected indices. The Fund seeks to take advantage of these market inefficiencies, providing the potential for enhanced returns. The Fund targets dividends from the SX5E index for the years 2026, 2027, and 2028.
The Fund employs a thoughtful approach to maturity allocation: one third of the portfolio will expire at the end of 2026, with the expiry of the December 2026 contracts, and another third will expire at the end of 2027 with the expiry of the December 2027 contracts, and the last third will expire at the end of 2028 with the expiry of the December 2028 contracts. By distributing investments across 2026, 2027, and 2028, we mitigate risk and optimize potential returns. This strategy avoids concentrating risk in a single year (e.g. 2020), fostering a balanced and sustainable growth trajectory.
The Longchamp Equity Dividend Europe 2028 Fund offers the following advantages :
- Access to an asset class traditionally reserved for institutional investors (traded contracts are dividend futures)
- Dividend market offering significant discounts that are out of step with the solid fundamentals of the selected indices
- Natural hedge against inflation since dividends are calculated on nominal earnings, which tend to increase when prices rise
- Increased share buybacks are good for dividends, as the reduce the number of share outstanding and therefore support dividends per share
- Companies are led to increase their dividends in periods of high interest rates to make their shares attractive to investors.

Structured Products Expertise
Derivatives and structured products are one of Longchamp AM’s main areas of expertise. We constantly look at market dislocations coming from structured products issuance on indices and single stocks.
One of the parameters we focus on is dividends futures, whose prices tend to be undervalued. Indeed, hedging of structured products, such as well-known Autocalls, gives bank a long exposure to dividends, a risk that they want to give away at discounted prices. During equity market crashes, this exposure can become too big so that investors, i.e. Longchamp AM, have the opportunity to buy dividends at very low costs.
