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. 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 December 2020

In December 2020, some of the major political problems were resolved in time for the end of the year. The EU was able to reach a joint decision on the 750 billion EU Next Generation Fund. Furthermore, the EU was able to sign a post-Brexit deal with the UK at the last minute after all. The first vaccinations were also carried out, further supporting the positive sentiment. OPEC took the decision to slightly increase oil production from January after the oil price stabilized at around USD 50 and expectations for the global economy are increasingly positive. The yield on Spanish ten-year government bonds fell below zero percent for the first time. The yield on German ten-year government bonds traded in a narrow tranding range and closed at -0.57%, the same level as at the beginning of the month. The stock markets tended to be positive and mostly gained in the range of one to five percent. Individual outliers - such as the ATX - were even a bit higher in terms of growth. The euro also continued to hold its own against most currencies - it rose by around three percent against the USD. Gold was able to make up for the weakness of November and closed the year just below USD 1900
