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 September Asian stock markets were under pressure with the exception of Japan. The headwinds on the stock markets were caused by a combination of problems: The troubles of the Chinese real estate company Evergrande burdened the consumer confidence as well as the consumption and also slowed down the real estate and stock markets in China, which have often been the target of government regulatory intervention. In addition supply bottlenecks and energy shortages continued to affect production. In this market environment the price of the DJE - Asia fell -2.60%. Its benchmark index (100% MSCI Daily TR AC Far East ex Japan) corrected by -2.97%. In September the sectors of the Asian investment region developed predominantly negatively. Relatively best, i.e. with the highest price gains, was only the energy sector (highly weighted in the fund). The non-cyclical consumer goods and technology sectors (both lowly weighted in the fund) as well as real estate (neutrally weighted in the fund) and telecommunications (highly weighted in the fund) ended the month below average, i.e. with the largest price losses. Overall the sector weighting had a positive impact on the fund's price performance against the broad Asian equity market in September. The strongest performance contributions of individual stocks was delivered by the wind turbine manufacturer Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology, the insurance group PICC Properties and the Casualty and port operator China Merchants Port Holdings (all three China) as well as the semiconductor producer Tokyo Electron (Japan). On the other hand the fund's performance was weighed down by various individual stocks including the real estate company Great Eagle and the composite producer Kingboard Holdings (Hong Kong) as well as the battery manufacturer Samsung SDI (South Korea) and the IT group Alibaba (China). During the month the fund management reduced especially the sectors real estate and travel & leisure. On the other hand it increased the sectors industrial, oil & gas, technology, retail and telecommunications. Regionally the weighting of Japanese, Chinese and South Korean equities was increased and the share of Hong Kong equities was reduced. The investment ratio rose to 98.70% in equities (96.29% previous month). At the end of the month the Hang Seng Index was fully hedged.
