The DWS Concept DJE Responsible Invest is a mixed fund that invests worldwide in equities (min. 25%) and bonds of sustainable companies (green bonds). Companies that exert a positive influence on society through products, processes or special commitment are considered sustainable. In addition, the fund may only invest in companies whose CO2 emissions are below very strict limits. This CO2 filter manifests itself in a very low carbon footprint at fund level. Investments in green bonds are bonds whose proceeds flow into pre-defined green projects - these can include reforestation projects, the establishment of recycling cycles or the improvement of drinking water treatment. The fund is fully geared to globally valid sustainability requirements.

DJE works with MSCI ESG Research, a leading international provider of environmental, social and governance (ESG) analysis and ratings. The investment universe is examined on the basis of ESG filters. The fund management of the DWS Concept DJE Responsible Invest analyzes the closer selection qualitatively and invests in what it considers to be the most promising ESG leading stocks. Excluded are companies that violate United Nations regulations on human rights, labour rights and environmental protection or that generate more than 5% of their sales through weapons, gambling, nuclear energy, power plant coal or genetically modified seeds. On the equity side, the focus is on companies that have a positive impact on society and the environment. On the bond side, the fund invests primarily in "green bonds", i.e. bonds issued by companies that meet ESG criteria. Investment in government bonds is not the focus of attention, but is possible, provided there are no exclusion criteria such as high corruption, lack of freedom of the press or weak civil rights.

In May, as in the months before, share prices initially continued to decline, but turned around in the course of the month and were able to recover some of the losses. The change of direction on the stock markets was accompanied by a changing assessment of risks on the part of market participants. Initially, the focus was on inflation risks, but in the course of the month increasing growth concerns gained more attention. As growth risks came more into focus, market participants' hopes for a less aggressive increase in US key interest rates in the coming months increased. The bond markets in the USA and Europe reacted differently to interest rate expectations. US government bonds outperformed in May, as less drastic rate hikes were expected. Their European counterparts, on the other hand, weakened against the backdrop of further rising inflation and several expected interest rate hikes by the ECB. On the international stock markets, only just under a third of the sectors performed positively in May. By far the highest price gain was recorded by the energy sector. In addition, the credit institutions, telecommunications and chemicals sectors, among others, achieved positive results. The majority of sectors, on the other hand, suffered losses in May. The Retail, Real Estate, Personal Care & Pharmaceuticals, Automobile and Food & Beverage sectors recorded the strongest price declines. In this market environment, the value of the DWS Concept DJE Responsible Invest fell by -3.67%. The fund benefited in May from its positions in the Norwegian oil and gas company Equinor, the US technology company LAM Research (process technology equipment and systems for the semiconductor industry) and the Berlin-based online mail order company Zalando, among others. On the other hand, Hamburg-based copper producer Aurubis, Swiss specialty chemicals company Sika and Munich-based software and IT service provider Allgeier were particularly disappointing. At the end of the month, stocks denominated in US and Hong Kong dollars were partially currency-hedged.
