Investment approach

In addition to steady population growth, the increasing demand for protein-rich foods resulting from rising living standards in developing countries is among the main drivers of agricultural prices. Moreover increasing urbanisation is likely to cause a shortage of farmland and thus make it difficult to close the supply gap in the agricultural sector (see chart below). According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), droughts and floods could reduce worldwide crop yields by another 20 to 40% in future. In order to at least alleviate this looming food shortage, the demand for modern farm machinery and irrigation equipment, efficient seeds, pesticides and fertilizers, aquaculture and suitable animal feed is likely to increase significantly. In this environment, DJE - Agrar & Ernährung invests in shares of selected companies that benefit from the above mentioned trends. But also in the case of falling commodity prices the fund is able to take advantage by specific investments in the food industry. In order to reduce risk the fund seeks to diversify the portfolio both thematically and regionally.


  • Active portfolio management constantly monitors the industry
  • Risk spreading via the professional selection of securities
  • Attractive growth prospects in the agriculture and food sector


  • Issuer country and credit risks
  • Increased risk of price fluctuations resulting from focus on specific sectors
  • Equity prices may exhibit relatively strong fluctuations depending on market conditions
  • Price risks for bonds, particularly when interest rates on the capital markets rise
