Large European technology and market leaders enjoy long-term, above-average growth thanks to continuous innovations and sound business models. Highly dynamic hidden champions often take the form of small- and medium-sized companies. With the all cap approach of our European equity funds, you can take advantage of all market segments.
A large number of companies are available for selection in the small and mid caps segment in Europe. At the same time smaller companies receive significantly less attention from external analysts. However, this segment is home to numerous hidden fast-growing global market leaders (known as hidden champions). You can profit from this with our second-tier equity funds.
The DAX represents only a fraction of the investment opportunities in Germany. Fast-growing hidden champions can be found in the second-tier segment in particular, thanks to globally leading products. With our Germany equity funds, you can rely on the strengths of the German economy.
We consistently invest in high-growth companies that make a positive contribution to tackling global challenges facing the environment and society. Smaller, very sustainable companies are often neglected and undervalued. You too can take advantage of this and get involved in this value creation process at an early stage.
Market-dominant technology leaders are on the road to success around the world and, thanks to constant innovation and stable business models, are growing permanently and above average. Furthermore, the small cap segment includes companies whose future prospects are not yet reflected in the share price. Join us in counting on the current and future winners on the stock market.
Benefit from a flexible multi-asset strategy with a focus on individual ideas. Strategic long-term positions in attractive capital market segments, especially niches, are supplemented by short-term oriented thematic investments as well as opportunistic positions. Investments are made broadly across all asset classes and regions - deliberately detached from any benchmark. Therefore, the active approach is not based on pre-defined bandwidths for individual asset classes. On the portfolio-level, a comprehensive risk overlay is made on the basis of sensitivities to key risk factors.
Benefit from an investment strategy with the goal of stable and attractive returns above money market investments. The fund primarily invests in variable and fixed-interest rate bonds mainly from European issuers with short and medium maturities. The selection is based on a quantitative investment process, which is supplemented by opportunistic, discretionary management decisions. The duration is actively managed in a range between 0 and 2 years
Invest in an opportunity-oriented bond portfolio that primarily invests in corporate and financial bonds. The aim of the portfolio is to achieve an attractive return that is independent of European interest rate developements. In addition to the focus on attractive bottom-up ideas and the achievement of high coupon yields, opportunities in various market phases can be exploited due to the flexible and benchmark independent positioning as well as the broad investment universe.
Participate in the appreciation of (foreign) currencies against the euro and the yield advantage of foreign currency bonds compared to euro investments. The fund primarily invests in liquid, global bonds denominated in currencies outside of the European Monetary Union (ex Euro). The investment approach is rule-based and incorporates both fundamental and sentiment indicators. Depending on the market environment, either an active overweight in developed or emerging markets is taken or the regions are weighted neutrally.
Benefit from the yield advantage of emerging market bonds while creating environmental and social value. Due to the selection of sustainable government and corporate bonds, the fund exhibits a less volatile performance characteristic compared to the benchmark as well as traditional emerging market debt investments. In addition to the above-average earnings potential, the long-term investment strategy is based on the fundamental strength of highly liquid government and corporate bond issuers that meet the strategy’s strict sustainability criteria.
Take advantage of the above-average earnings potential of the Emerging Markets Debt asset class. The strategy identifies and exploits market inefficiencies in this asset class. The investment process is rule-based and combines a fundamental selection approach with a quantitative allocation approach. The investment universe consists of emerging market government and quasi-government bonds which are predominantly denominated in US dollars. The currency risk is fully alleviated through hedging instruments. In addition to that, the investment process is supplemented by active duration management.
Risks: The fund is exposed to general market risk. The value of the fund assets, and hence the value of each individual unit, may rise or fall compared with the issue price. In some circumstances, this may result in the investor not receiving back all of the money invested. The risk weighting depends on the investment policy applied. The mutual fund concentrates on investments in specific assets, which results in it being especially dependent on the performance of these assets or markets. The Bank may conduct derivative transactions on behalf of the mutual fund for the purposes of hedging, efficient portfolio management and the generation of additional earnings. The latter may at least temporarily increase the risk of the mutual fund recording a loss. The mutual fund is exposed to a risk of greater volatility that is impossible to exclude on account of its composition and its investment strategy. This entails unit prices rising or falling steeply over short periods of time. No guarantee can be provided that the objectives of the investment policy will be achieved. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.
