Asset Allocation (30/06/2021)
DJE - Asia focuses on equities with strong substance and growth as well as companies with stable and promising business models from the Asia-Pacific region. The RCEP free trade zone, which was established in 2020, is the largest in the world in terms of its share of global GDP and is expected to contribute to the region's dynamic growth (see chart). The investment process combines fundamental top-down (FMM) and bottom-up analysis. This is to ensure that both opportunities and risks are identified in a timely manner. In the fund, preference is given to companies with attractive earnings growth. The decisive investment criteria include sustained growth, stability of corporate earnings as well as innovative strength and a leading competitive position. The fund management actively controls the investment quotas in regions, countries, sectors or companies of the Asian economic area free of index specifications.
- Excellent demographic developments make long-term growth in investments in Asia possible
- The conditions for expansion in many Asian domestic economies, such as China, continue to exist
- Traditionally higher dividend payments mean that the fund can take advantage of the compounding effect of reinvested dividends
- Equity prices may exhibit relatively strong fluctuations depending on market conditions
- Currency risks resulting from a high proportion of foreign investments
- Issuer country and credit risks
In June the Asian stock markets showed again a mixed performance. On local currency basis the stock markets in Hong Kong and China, Singapore and Thailand declined slightly, while India, Taiwan, Japan and South Korea gained. Rising inflation worldwide also weighed on the stock markets in Asia. For example, producer prices in China rose by 9.0% year-on-year - the strongest increase since 2008. On the other hand, China increased its exports by 28% and imports by 51% compared to previous year, which was weighed down by Corona. In this market environment the price of DJE - Asia gained 3.36% and outperformed its benchmark index (100% MSCI Daily TR AC Far East Ex Japan), which gained 3.15%. In June sectors of the Asian investment region performed mostly negatively. Relatively best performing sectors, i.e. with the highest gains, were consumer cyclicals, industrials (both highly weighted in the fund) and healthcare (lowly weighted in the fund). The sectors financial services, utilities (both lowly weighted in the fund), real estate and consumer staples (both highly weighted in the fund) closed the month with the largest price losses. Overall the sector weighting had a positive impact on the fund’s price performance versus the broad Asian equity market. Viewing individual stocks the strongest performance contributions came from titles of the sporting goods manufacturer Anta Sports (China), the oil company PetroChina (China), the jewelry maker Chow Tai Fook (Hong Kong) and the composites producer Kingboard Holdings (Hong Kong). Anyway, the fund performance was slowed down by several individual stocks, including real estate financier HDFC (India), textile company Texwinca Holdings (Hong Kong), wind turbine manufacturer Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology and internet company Tencent (both China). During the month the fund management reduced the sectors telecommunications and financial services in particular. On the other hand, it increased positions mainly in the sectors oil & gas, basic materials and retail. Regionally Hong Kong, Thai and Indian equities were slightly reduced in particular and the proportion of Chinese equities slightly increased. The equity quota was 97.59% (96.91% previous month). At the end of the month Stocks denominated in Hong Kong and Singapore dollars were partly currency hedged.
