DJE - Zins & Dividende invests globally, primarily in bonds and equities, and is free of benchmark constraints. The fund seeks to generate a stable performance while emphasising an absolute return approach with the aim of avoiding losses as far as possible. Through differentiated weighting of the asset classes bonds and equities which are characterised by high dividends and substance, the fund aims to generate regular interest income on the one hand and to achieve the most sustainable positive performance possible with low volatility on the other. When selecting shares, the fund management pays attention to stable dividend payments and also to an investor-friendly corporate policy with capital returns and share buybacks (total shareholder return). The fund's flexible investment approach enables it to adapt quickly to the constantly changing market conditions. To reduce the risk of capital fluctuations, at least 50% of the fund's assets are invested in bonds on a permanent basis. The equity exposure is at least 25% and is limited to a maximum of 50%. Currency risks are hedged depending on market conditions.

The DJE – Zins & Dividende aims to deliver - over a full market cycle - a constant absolute return in all market conditions no matter the market direction. On the bond side the DJE in-house research team tries to selectively filter out of the complete bond universe the most promising investment ideas. The DJE – Zins & Dividende will mainly invest in bonds issued by public bodies and corporations rated at least investment grade. On the equity side the well-established investment approach of the DJE dividend strategy is based on the recognition that, in the long term, most of the overall performance of an equity investment comes from the compounding effect generated by reinvested dividends. Long-term investigations of international stock markets show that only slightly more than half of the profits are caused by price increases and the other half due to dividend effects. The attractive dividend yield currently provided by companies and the good earning offers further dividend growth potential. Considerations like these, in combination with the absolute return approach of DJE – Zins & Dividende, should lead to an attractive risk/return profile of the fund, which should also in volatile markets be maintained by allowing the management to flexibly allocate between equity and bonds respectively cash.

In December the relief rally of the previous month continued - albeit more moderately. Corona was also determinant in the last month of the year in negative and positive terms. In Europe many governments imposed tighter lockdown measures, on the other hand, several Covid 19 vaccines were approved and vaccination started in the UK. Stock markets received additional tailwinds from central banks which increased and extended their bond-buying programs (ECB) or plan to continue until employment and inflation will improve (Fed). In Europe and China leading indicators and economic data pointed to a revival of the economy while in the USA indicators declined slightly. A good sign of a reviving economy came from the oil price: Brent crude cost more than $50 per barrel for the first time since March 2020. In this context bond markets showed a mixed performance. In Germany yields of 10-year Bunds was virtually unchanged at -0.57% while yields of their US counterparts rose from 0.84% to 0.91%.
