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 August 2018

Markets were under pressure though Donald Trump’s trade policy as well as by a new Italian new Italian government and the difficulty assessing its fiscal discipline. The Turkish Lira lost about 40 % of its value since the beginning of the year, which has affected European banks and companies, but at this time does not (yet) poses an acute risk. Emerging markets especially came under pressure with the Argentinian Peso down about 50 % and the Brazilian Real 17 % year-to-date. The growth markets of Eastern Europe and Asia have thus far been able to escape this pressure. The US economy grew at an annualized pace of 4.2 % in 2q2018, the fastest in four years. The good news for the economy caused market participants to eliminate any thoughts as to a slowing of the pace of interest rate hikes or even a complete stoppage. In the Eurozone, growth has slowed to 2.2 % in 2q2018 from 2.5 %. The Brexit negotiations, the trade conflict with the USA and the new Italian government suppressed the mood of investors.
