Expert jury decides!

For the second time, the Mountain View Award is presented to the three best funds in a total of 38 selected categories. Funds are judged on the basis of the 5-, 3-, and 1-year Sharpe Ratio, with the greatest weight given to the 5-year ratio. The Sharpe ratio is a value that puts the excess return of a fund over the risk-free interest rate in relation to its volatility. The higher the Sharpe ratio of a fund, the better its risk-return profile. Kathrein Bond Select received the Mountain View Award in the category Bond Funds Global, which confirms the quality of our management style with its focus on risk-return optimization. Kathrein Bond Select is a globally invested bond fund focusing on companies with good credit ratings. The fund has an interesting, independent, transparent management approach and a broadly diversified portfolio across different countries and sectors. As an actively managed fund, companies at risk of default are identified and excluded in the course of individual stock selection, using the DEFEX ("Default Expectation") model developed by Kathrein Privatbank. The Mountain View Award underlines the excellent track record of Kathrein Bond Select compared to its peer group and the overall market.
