The fund's investment focus is on companies involved in the gold mining sector. The equity portion is actively managed. The proportion of pure gold mining stocks must be at least 30% of assets under management. In addition, companies operating in the sector of other primary resources - such as base metals, oil and gas and agricultural commodity producers - are an important part of the fund. The fund thus provides investors with the opportunity to participate in the long-term uptrend of both the gold price and the broad commodity market. The combination of stocks from the gold, base metals, energy and agricultural sector creates a diversification effect and reduces investor risk compared to direct investment.

Monthly Fund Manager's Commentary
Gold and silver have suffered the highest price loses for more than 30 years. On the 12 and the 15 April the gold price closed with a loss of 13 per cent, followed by a moderate recovery. Nevertheless, in USD the price of the fine troy ounce decreased 7.93% (1,471. 93 USD/oz.). In EUR the minus was even worth due to a USD/EUR appreciation. One reason for the considerable price fall is the slowdown of the inflation rate all over the world. Although the highly monetary reflation politic of the central banks normally supports gold investments, the latest market conditions of money which does not reach the market and therefore creates consequently deflationary tendencies, slowed down the gold price performance. Even worth was the situation for equities in gold mining companies. The XAU gold mining index lost 21.50 per cent on a monthly basis. Even widely diversified, the DJE Gold & Ressourcen was not able to escape from this negative environment. On a monthly basis the fund lost 11 per cent. The highest contribution to the funds performance was archived by the two highest fund positions, the oil holding Cheron and the fertilizer producer Msaic. Disappointing on the other side was the development of assets in the gold mining sector. In this segment the fund was negatively affected by the poor performance of Agnico Eagle, Kinross Gold and Newmont Mining. The fund management kept the gold mining quota under 40 per cent. Besides the precious metal sector, our investment in the Swiss cement holding Holcim and the Chilean copper producer Antofagasta was increased. On the other side sold were titles of the German sugar producer Südzucker and the Swiss crop protection and seed producer Syngenta. The current gold pessimism reflects the investors opinion that the crisis is over. Pessimism does not seem to be justified. In the long run, investments into gold may be promising. In the short term other sectors of the commodity segment like basis and industrial metals as well as energy and agricultural commodities may have better chances.
