Performance in 12-month periods

The charts and tables regarding performance shown here are based on own calculations according to the method developed by the German Investment Funds Association (BVI). They illustrate past performance. Future performance can deviate both positively and negatively from these calculations. Gross performance (BVI method) takes into account all charges at fund level (e.g. management fee), net performance plus the issue surcharge. Additional charges can arise for individual investors (e.g. custody account fees, commissions and other fees). Model calculation (net): An investor wants to purchase fund units for EUR 1,000 EUR. Considering a max issue surcharge of 5.00% he has to payEUR 50.00 for the purchase. Also, fees may be charged for the administration of the safe custody account, which will lower the performance. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance.

Monthly market comment
The reason for the weaker equity markets until the middle of the month was primarily concerns about higher US fiscal spending, accompanied by higher government bond volumes and, as a result, higher yields. Weaker economic data as well as the absence of a hawkish surprise from the US Federal Reserve recently ensured stabilisation and recovery (S&P500: -1.3%; Stoxx Europe 50: -1.0%). Yields on 10-year US government bonds rose to as high as 4.34% at their peak and 10-year Bund yields to 2.72% at mid-month. Risk premiums in the European investment grade and high yield segments widened by 7 and 16 basis points, respectively, in the generally more difficult environment. Gold suffered from the stronger US dollar and higher real interest rates (-1.5% to USD 1,941/ounce).
