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 April 2018

The simmering trade conflict as well as the negative outlook for government debt in the USA drove 10 year US Treasury yields above 3 %. The US GDP growth of 2.3 % surprised the markets with a higher than expected 2.3 %, which pushed yields up further. In Europe yields also rose, however weaker leading indicators are nourishing doubts about the sustainability of the European recovery. Stocks markets recovered strongly in April driven higher on the one hand by good quarterly earnings results and a robust economy, but on the other hand interest rate fears and fear of protectionism caution the markets. The US dollar recovered strongly against the EUR and nearly has made up the decline of the first three months.
