Monthly Commentary

In April the further expansion of the safety nets that had already been put in place by governments and central banks in March led to a rally on the stock markets. And the bond markets also developed positively. The yield on 10-year German government bonds fell from -0.47% to -0.59%. By contrast the yield on their Italian counterparts rose from 1.52% to 1.76%. While the yields of high-quality government bonds fell only slightly, high-yield corporate bonds made a price jump as their yields fell significantly in Europe by 262 basis points to 6.92%. Yields on high quality corporate bonds also narrowed in Europe by 66 basis points to 1.19%. In this market environment the DJE - Euro Renten rose slightly 0.75%. In April, the fund benefited above all from the positive performance of corporate bonds and the slight decline in yields on high-quality government bonds. On the other hand, the increase in the yield of Italian government bonds impacted the performance of the fund. During the month the fund management slightly increased the proportion of European corporate bonds. On the other hand, it sold Slovakian government bonds with long maturities to reduce portfolio risk. In addition, it exchanged a 10-year French government bond for a 30-year one. As a result of these adjustments the bond ratio fell to 92.96% from 97.21% previous month. Thanks to active duration management by the fund management the modified duration remained stable at 4.10% (4.10% previous month) in a volatile market environment.
