Asset Allocation (19/01/2021)
TThe selection of individual stocks for DJE - Alpha Global follows a consistent bottom-up approach. This is based on fundamental factors such as market positioning, balance sheet and earnings potential, valuation, management quality and ESG criteria. The fund management allocates the asset classes flexibly and weights the individual stocks, sectors and countries depending on the expected market situation with the aim of spreading the portfolio risk and taking advantage of the opportunities that arise. Gold is another portfolio component that is low-correlated with equities and bonds and should provide additional stability, with a quota of up to 10% of the portfolio possible. With the offensive risk-reward profile and broad diversification across different asset classes, the fund aims for sustainable attractive performance, but also comparatively low volatility.

In December the relief rally of previous month continued albeit more moderately. The German DAX index rose 3.22% to end the year just below its February 2020 peak, while the broad European Stoxx Europe 600 index gained 1.72%. Across the Atlantic the S&P 500 gained 1.41%. The Hang Seng Index in Hong Kong reached a gain of 1.07%. The MSCI World Index advanced 1.83% as a barometer for global equities - all index figures in euro terms. Corona continued to dominate 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 improve again (Fed). In Europe and China leading indicators and economic data pointed to a revival of the economy, while in the USA indicators declined slightly. In this market environment DJE - Alpha Global gained only 1.11% as the still high weighting in high-growth technology stocks burdened, while at the same time the weighting in cyclical value stocks was not high enough. In December two-thirds of all sectors of the global equity market performed positively. The highest price gains in December were recorded by the sectors basic materials, automotive and media. In addition the sectors financial services, technology, banking, household goods and oil & gas, among others, also performed well. On the other hand, the sectors retail, construction & materials, real estate, utilities and telecom suffered slight losses in December. The fund benefited in December mainly from its stock selection in the sectors media, oil & gas, industrials (all three underweighted in the fund) and utility. And also because of the stock selection in the sectors construction & materials and chemicals (both highly weighted in the fund). At the individual stock level the strongest value contributors came from U.S. media company Walt Disney, South Korean battery maker Samsung SDI, Taiwanese semiconductor manufacturer Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing, and the two Danish companies Vestas Windsystems (wind turbine manufacturer) and Orsted (energy supplier), among others. On the other hand the underweighting of the automotive sector in particular weighed on the fund's performance. Finally the stock selection in the sectors insurance, basic materials and retail also had a negative impact. At the individual stock level the performance of the US provider of CRM systems (customer relationship management systems) Salesforce.com, the reinsurer Hannover Re and the US DIY chain Home Depot were particularly disappointing. During the month the fund management increased its investments primarily into the sectors industrials, basic materials and chemicals. Reduced were positions in the retail and technology sector, among others. Therefore the bond allocation decreased from 14.40% previous month to 12.18%. The equity ratio remained almost stable at 83.71% (83.25% previous month). The cash ratio increased from 0.30% to 2.02%.
