Fund report as of 22/02/2018
The Kathrein Corporate Bond invests worldwide mainly in corporate bonds with higher rating grades (investment grade) and quoted in the Euro currency. Widely spread diversified holdings and active management of maturities, effected through the "Duration Optimizer" worked out by Kathrein Privatbank provide the opportunity for good returns and risk minimization. The "Duration Optimizer" assumes that interest rates on capital markets follow business cycles of the economy and long term trends. In this quantitative model, distinct signals provide for clearly structured and logical decisions.

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 3.00% 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 2018
Economic growth should be strong to start 2018 as economic confidence indicators around the world remain strong. In the USA, the government shutdown was brief and therefore should have no impact on economic growth. The positive indicators led to an increase in government bond yields in medium and long dated bonds in the USA and Germany. This increase was mild in the Euro-zone periphery. The political situation in Washington and the regained trust in the EUR continue to weigh on the US-dollar. The effect of the US tax reform led to an expectation of higher earnings expectations and therefor supported the continuation of the bull market.
