Management report - 2nd Quarter 2017

Overall, the second quarter proved to be a time of transition for the financial markets. After six particularly robust months, investors certainly needed a digestion phase. The fund remained in positive territory with a gain of 0.33% in the period. There was little change to the equity allocation in the second quarter. It remained at around 92%. The positions in European equities performed well as a whole. The majority outperformed the MSCI Europe NR. It is pleasing to see that the fund selection kept up the outperformance momentum that had begun in the first quarter. Overweighting the European market turned out well as European equity markets outperformed their US counterparts (in euros). The dollar's near-6% fall against the euro impacted the performance of non-euro asset classes. But the fact that part of the exchange risk was hedged helped limit the damage. The current financial cycle has now reached a high degree of maturity, which means that the prevailing trends have pushed up absolute and relative valuation levels to elevated levels. It is therefore very important to preserve the balance of the portfolio and be on guard for early signs of an end to this economic and financial cycle.
