The fund focuses on carefully selected companies in the European region. Stock selection is index-independent, follows a bottom-up approach and focuses on fundamental factors such as market positioning, earnings and balance sheet potential, valuation, management quality and sustainability criteria. The fund offers a combination of quality European equities and high earnings growth stocks (so-called hidden champions) and invests in listed companies of all sizes. A responsible business model and the stability of corporate earnings are particularly important. The DJE - Europe thus aims for capital growth with a medium to long-term investment horizon.

The growth dynamics of European companies, especially the "hidden champions", is the focus of the strategy. In accordance with the growth approach, the fund management combines companies with structural, cyclical and potential growth. The selection process of individual stocks follows a consistent bottom-up approach and is based on fundamental factors such as market positioning, balance sheet and earnings potential, valuation, management quality and sustainability criteria. The fund management attaches importance to a balanced mix of European quality stocks and hidden champions and selects the most promising stocks from its point of view. The portfolio, which contains around 60 to 80 equity positions, is managed independently of index guidelines.

The European stock market performed well in December, more than compensating its losses from previous month. In seasonal terms the stock market benefited from a good development towards the end of the year, following the price slump from the end of November. All sectors benefited from this except automobiles and retail. In the euro zone the inflation rate rose to 4.9% at the end of November compared to the same month a year earlier. Nevertheless, the European Central Bank left its expansionary monetary policy unchanged. In this market environment the price of the DJE - Europa rose by 4.01% in December. Its benchmark index (100% MSCI Europe EUR Net Total Return) gained 5.71%. The fund benefited in particular from the sectors construction & materials and energy. The strongest individual stock contributions came from Hapag-Lloyd (transportation & logistics/Hamburg), AP Moeller-Maersk (transportation & logistics, shipbuilding, aviation/Denmark), Nokia (telecommunications/Finland) and Schneider Electric (electrical engineering/France), among others. On the other hand, negative impulses came mainly from the luxury and consumer staples sectors as well as the healthcare sector. At the individual stock level Shop Apotheke (online pharmacy/Netherlands), BioNTech (biotechnology/Mainz) and Vestas Wind Systems (wind turbine manufacturer/Denmark) performed particularly disappointing. No significant changes were made to the sector allocation during the month. Regionally the fund management increased the allocation of France, the UK and Switzerland in particular. On the other hand, it slightly reduced the allocation of Germany. The fund's equity allocation remained virtually stable at 99.46% (99.50% previous month).
