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. If the local currency of the investor is different from the base currency of the fund, the performance for the individual investor also depends on the development of the relevant exchange rate. *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 February 2020

There was a massive downward movement on the stock markets in the last week of February. Worldwide market capitalization fell by $6 trillion. The arrival of the corona virus in Italy raised fears that the tentative economic recovery across Europe is at risk. China's leading indicators (PMI Index) released at the end of the month, showed the worst performance on record for the index, thereby also exceeding the markets’ worst expectations. Now hopes lie with the central banks, first and foremost the US Fed, which is expected to execute significant interest rate cuts. In the bond segment, government bonds, and in particular US Treasuries, benefited from stock market turbulence. High-yield and corporate bonds saw slight price corrections. In currency news, the USD initially rose to 1.08 against the euro, only to correct back to 1.105 toward the end of the month, as the expected rate cuts in the US will be significantly more pronounced than in the euro zone. Emerging market currencies trended lower closing the month 2% to 4% down.
