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.
- 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
- Excellent demographic developments make long-term growth in investments in Asia possible
- 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 August Asian stock markets performed well with the exception of Singapore, South Korea and Hong Kong. In China the government's regulatory efforts extended beyond the technology sector to other branches with the aim of avoiding the formation of monopolies and achieving greater social justice. While regulation is likely to burden large corporations more, small and medium-sized companies will be in a better position. Industrial production (+6.4% year-on-year), exports were slightly weaker than expected in July and the purchasing managers' indices for industry and services weakened slightly. In this market environment the price of the DJE - Asia rose 1.57%. Its benchmark index (100% MSCI Daily TR AC Far East Ex Japan) gained 1.51%. In August sectors of the Asian investment region performed mostly positively. The best performing sectors, i.e. with the highest price gains, were energy, utilities, industrials and consumer staples (all four highly weighted in the fund). Underperformer, with the largest price losses, were on the other side the sectors cyclical consumer goods and healthcare (both lowly weighted in the fund) and real estate (highly weighted in the fund). Overall the sector weighting influenced the fund price performance positive in view of the broad Asian equity market in August. At the individual stock level the strongest contribution to the fund’s performance came from the highly weighted positions in the real estate financier HDFC (India), the bicycle components and the accessories manufacturer Shimano (Japan), the insurance group PICC Properties and Casualty and the port operator China Merchants Port Holdings (both China). On the other hand, the fund performance was slowed down by several individual stocks, including the IT company group Alibaba (China), the mining company Rio Tinto (UK/Australia), the composites producer Kingboard Holdings (Hong Kong) and the sporting goods manufacturer Anta Sport (China). During the month the fund management reduced mainly the sectors oil & gas, retail and chemicals. On the other hand, it increased the sectors household goods and financial services. Regionally the weighting of Chinese equities was slightly reduced and the share of Hong Kong and Japanese equities increased. The investment ratio increased an equity share in height of 96.29% (95.18% previous month). Prices denominated in Hong Kong dollars and Japanese yen were partially currency hedged at the end of the month.
