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 July 2018

As expected nothing has come of the trade war between Europe and the US, with President Trump and EU Commission President Junker agreeing on reduced tariffs and increased access to their respective markets. The de-escalation led to a rebound of risky assets across the board and to a decline in "safe haven assets". US GDP grew at an annualized 4.1 %--highest since 3rd quarter 2014--with inflation approaching 3 %. Global stock markets rebounded in the month with the MSCI World once again reaching a new-all-time high. Sales and earnings in the US, Europe and Japan are up in some cases sharply with more than half the companies reporting. By performance regionally, the US was the best followed by Europe, where German, Austrian and Swiss stocks all gained a lot. Performing worst were "safe haven" German government bonds. Euro-zone government bonds as a whole fell, but Italian bonds stabilized. Performing best were high yielding Euro bonds as well as emerging market government bonds. The Euro remained unchanged against the US$, but gained against the Yen and GBP.
