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 September 2018

September witness a partially settling down of volatility in emerging market currencies after several months of partially extreme turbulences. The Turkish central bank raised rates on September 13 from 17.75 % to 24 %. Investors then moved on to other topics. The focus then was more on the price increases in the Eurozone of 2 % in August, which was partially caused by a crude oil price increase of 21 % since the beginning of the year. The US-Fed raised rates as expected on September 26 by 0.25 % to 2.25 % and will continue to raise rates to 3 % according to expectations. The trade conflict with China has yet to show any negative effect on the growth forecast, but this could occur with a time lag and is dependent on the dynamic of the escalations. Currently domestic demand is the pillar of growth. The yield increase in the USA as well as the positive expectations for global growth, pushed yields higher in Europe. By the end of September, the Italian government railed the markets by proposing a 2019 budget deficit of 2.4 %.
