The DJE - Gold & Resources is a theme-oriented global equity fund. The concentrated portfolio of 50-70 stocks focuses on shares of companies active in the mining, processing and marketing of gold. Equities from a broader commodities universe, such as diversified mining companies, non-ferrous metals, oil and gas are added for diversification reasons. The index-independent strategy can dynamically vary its share of gold mining stocks between 30 - 100%. With gold as the investment focus, the fund offers diversification and a lower correlation to traditional investment strategies.

Asset Allocation (30/06/2021)
The theme-oriented and globally investing equity fund focuses on gold and precious metals equities, diversified commodity groups, base metal producers, chemical companies and oil & gas producers. The fund pursues an index-independent bottom-up approach with high-quality stock selection, focusing on the fundamental data of the companies. Debt-free gold producers with a competitive cost structure that can generate free cash flows even at lower gold prices are preferred. In general, negative or falling real interest rates are positive for tangible assets and for gold in particular. Investment demand for gold should continue to rise if US real interest rates remain low or fall again.
- Exchange rate gains in global investments are possible
- In the long term, high upside potential for stocks of the gold and commodity sector
- Increasing demand for physical gold due to declining confidence in established currencies and high demand from the emerging market jewelery sector; this should lead to higher gold prices and thus to higher prices for gold mining stocks
- Shares in the commodity and precious metals sector are generally more volatile than the overall market
- Currency risks resulting from a high proportion of foreign investments
- In addition to market price risks (equity and currency risks), there are country and credit risks
In June the price of the DJE - Gold & Resources corrected by -7.05%. Its benchmark index (60% Philadelphia Stock Exchange Gold and Silver Index, 20% Reuters/Jeffries CRB Index, 20% MSCI World Materials Sector Index (EUR)) declined -5.90%. Gold mining stocks performed negatively in June. The XAU Gold Mining Index decreased -14.63% in US dollar terms and 11.87% in euro terms - due to the appreciation of the US dollar against the euro in June. Gold mining stocks thus underperformed the gold price itself, which lost -7.17% in U.S. dollar terms and was quoted at USD 1,770.11/ounce. In euro terms, however, the gold price fell by only -4.26% to 1,492.84 EUR/ounce due to the appreciating US dollar. There was no support for the gold price in June from the gold ETFs, which reported around 6 tons of outflows. The strengthening of the U.S. dollar also weighed on the gold price development. Thanks to price gains in April and May the second quarter ended with an overall gain of 3.7%. However the first half of the year closed with a minus in height of -6.8% in U.S. dollar terms. In general the first half of the year was more characterized by ETF outflows, which amounted to about 194 tons. Even though the gold price is currently experiencing some headwinds the positive outlook for the medium to longer term has not changed. Increased inflation rates, low or in some cases clearly negative real interest rates, a still expansionary central bank policy and the high level of government debt are arguments in favor of gold investment in the long term. In addition the uncertainty of investors, the investment emergency and a loss in value of most important currencies supported by central banks continue to favor gold as an alternative currency. In June the highest positive contributions to the fund’s performance were delivered by positions of the Russian oil company Lukoil, Swiss building materials manufacturer Holcim, U.S. chemical company Albemarle and South Korean energy company SK Innovation, among others. On the other hand, the exposure to gold mining companies Gold Fields (South Africa), Newmont Mining (USA), Yamana Gold and Kinross Gold (both Canada), among others, had a negative impact. The weighting of gold mining stocks decreased to around 47% in the reporting period (around 50% i previous month). The focus remains on solidly financed producers that generate positive free cash flows even at lower gold prices and also have some growth prospects. Broader based commodity / chemical stocks outperformed gold mining stocks in June: MSCI World Materials -2.66% and CRB Commodity Index +6.82% - both figures in Euro terms. At month-end stocks denominated in euro were currency hedged.
