Monthly Commentary

While the international stock markets largely performed well in October, the consolidation phase on the bond markets continued. The Fed lowered its key interest rates by 25 basis points as expected to a range of 1.50% to 1.75%, but also announced a pause in its cycle of interest rate cuts, as it believes that the risks to the economic outlook would diminish. As a result, yields on high-quality 10-year government bonds rose slightly in the US and the euro zone. Ten-year government bonds in Germany, France, the Netherlands and Austria, for example, yielded a uniform 15 basis points higher. However, yields in all these countries remained negative. In the USA, yields on 10-year government bonds increased by 5 basis points to 1.72%. The yield on ten-year German government bonds rose by 19 basis points to -0.38% and its Italian counterparts yielded 0.99%, up 16 basis points. As yields on high-quality 2-year US bonds fell slightly, the flattened US yield curve became somewhat steeper again. In the USA, yields on high-quality corporate bonds also fell recently by 4 basis points to 2.87%, and high-yield corporate bonds yielded 5.64%, 1 basis point lower. In Europe, on the other hand, yields on both high-quality and high-yield corporate bonds widened in October: In Europe, bonds with good credit ratings rose by an average of 6 basis points to 0.46% recently, while high-yield European bonds yielded 3.60%, 14 basis points higher at the end of the month. Against this backdrop, the value of the DJE - Renten Global fell by -0.78%. Its benchmark index (65% BofA Merrill Lynch 3-5 Year AA, 30% JPM GBI Global Unhedged in EUR and 5% REX 1 Year Performance Index) also fell by -0.57%. Fund performance suffered in the month under review primarily from widening spreads on government bonds and rising interest rates. In the course of the month, the fund management hedged long-term US government bonds against the rise in interest rates by means of interest rate futures. Overall, the fund's bond ratio fell from 91.84% to 89.43%. The modified duration fell slightly from 2.97% to 2.54%. At the end of the month, US dollar-denominated bonds were fully hedged.
