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 sustained 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.

After a promising start of 2021 the markets slipped into negative territory towards the end of January, with the exception of Asia. This was mainly due to the uncertainty if vaccines developed so far could also be effective against the mutations of the Corona virus that have occurred, the insufficient supply of vaccines in the EU and the prolonged lockdown measures. In addition a turmoil was caused in the markets when small investors arranged to buy certain stocks in bulk via social media and trading platforms, driving up prices. As these stocks were also the target of short selling by several hedge funds that were forced to cover their positions the price was even more pushed. The bond markets reacted with partly with a moderate rise of interest rates - yields of 10-year German government bonds rose from -0.57% to -0.52% - but also with interest rates rising more sharply. 10-year US Treasuries yielded 1.07%, 16 basis points higher than at the beginning of the month. The gold price declined -2.67% to US$1,847.65/troz. In this market environment the price of the DJE - Zins & Dividende rose 0.44%. In January almost two-thirds of all sectors of the global equity market performed negatively. The sectors travel & leisure, food & beverages, household goods, financial services and insurance suffered the highest loses. Anyway, a good third of the MSCI sectors ended the month on a positive note. The highest gains were recorded by the sectors oil & gas, automotive, technology, retail and healthcare. The fund benefited from the sectors telecom and technology. The highest value contributions came from the two US companies Paypal (online payment service) and Alphabet (holding company; including IT services and trading, software, biotechnology). On the other hand, the insurance sector detracted from the fund's performance. Disappointing on the equity side was the performance of the Danish energy supplier Orsted and the French food company Danone. The fund management slightly reduced various sectors including the defensive food & beverages and healthcare. But it also slightly expanded the technology and industrial sector. Regionally the share of German and Swiss stocks was slightly reduced and Hong Kong stocks were increased. The fund's equity allocation declined to 46.07% from 49.42% previous month. On the bond side the fund management acquired Mexican government bonds in local currency. The fund's bond allocation was 50.23%, up from 49.15% previous month. The cash ratio increased to 3.70% from 1.43% previous month. At the end of the month the hedging of US dollar-denominated securities was reduced.
