Performance is calculated in accordance with the OeKB method and expressed as a percentage, assuming reinvestment of dividends. Charges such as management fees or other costs charged against the assets of the fund are included, whereas front-end loads (up to 3.50% of the capital invested) have not been included. This will reduce performance proportionate to the specific amount of capital invested. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future developments of the fund. Tax treatment depends on the investor’s personal situation and may be subject to future changes. *Sharpe ratio: This key figure compares the historical excess return over money market with its historical volatility. It characterizes how well the return of an asset compensates for the risk taken.

Portfolio manager comments as of January 2019

Germany’s GDP expanded at a rate of 0.1 % in the 4th quarter following a decline of 0.2% in the 3rd quarter, which means the economy avoided a technical recession (2 consecutive quarters of negative growth). In Italy GDP declined 0.1 % in the 3rd quarter and 0.2 % in the 4th quarter meaning that Italy is in a recession. The leading indicators were correct in predicting this slowdown, which was the cause of the equity market correction in the 4th quarter. Despite the dreary economic news the equity markets rallied in January. Most of the rally is attributed to the US Feds pausing of interest rate hikes. Also supporting the rally was the hope of a trade agreement between China and the USA as well as better than expected US earnings reports. Europe was weighed down by the weak growth as well as the Brexit Chaos. Despite the chaos the GBP gained 3 % against the Euro.
