Investment objective and policy

The fund aims to produce higher returns than the benchmark index by using active management (JP Morgan EMU Bond). The fund artificially reproduces the risk/return profile of a classic bond investment by using derivatives. The fund's investment strategy involves taking active positions against the index in terms of rate fluctuations and positioning on the yield curve. It is a tax-efficient investment for German investors keeping the taxable income portion to a minimum.

Management report - 2nd Quarter 2017

The euro zone sovereign debt market achieved only a slight gain on average during the second quarter. Even so, performances were uneven from one issuer to the next. For example, the 10-year benchmark Bund yield rose from 0.32% to 0.46% on the month, while the 10-year Italian yield fell from 2.31% to 2.15%. All this came against a backdrop of an improvement in euro zone economic conditions. In June the ECB had raised its growth forecast to 1.9% for 2017, up from 1.8% one quarter earlier. Euro zone inflation came to 1.3% at the end of the quarter, far below the ECB's 2% target. Meanwhile, the jobless rate is still too high, at 9.1%, even after declining steadily for more than three years. Against this backdrop, Mario Draghi announced no change to current monetary policy. The debt-purchase plan is being kept at EUR 60 billion per month. The main key rate was kept on hold at 0%, and the deposit rate at -0.40%.
