Asian stock markets made good progress across in December with South Korea leading the way. China impressed with continued strong economic data. The new Asia-Pacific Free Trade Area and the election of Joe Biden as new U.S. president made Chinese businessmen very confident, so that, among other things, the Caixin Purchasing Managers' Index for industry reached a 10-year high. Industrial production rose 7% above previous year's level, while exports increased by solid 21% in the same period. The state lawsuits against two major Chinese internet groups (monopolists) only temporarily weighed on the local stock market. In this market environment the price of DJE - Asien rose by 6.16%. Its benchmark, 100% MSCI Daily TR AC Far East Ex Japan, advanced by 3.29%. In December DJE - Asien benefited strongly from its focus on renewable energies and on the sectors industry and technology (both highly weighted in the fund). Thus, at the individual stock level, the strongest performance contributions came from solar glass manufacturer Xinyi Solar and wind turbine manufacturer Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology (both from China) as well as Korean battery producer Samsung SDI. In addition the South Korean Samsung Group (Samsung Electronics) and the Taiwanese chip contract manufacturer TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing) also made very encouraging contributions to the fund's performance. On the other hand the fund's performance was burdened by various individual stocks, including the insurance company PICC (People's Insurance Company of China/China), the conglomerate CK Hutchison Holding (Hong Kong), the hygiene company Vinda International Holdings and the internet company Tencent (both from China). Regionally South Korea and Taiwan performed particularly well in December, as did China (all three regions highly weighted in the fund). In the course of the month the fund management reduced its investments especially in the retail sector. On the other hand, it increased positions in the sector oil & gas and chemicals. Regionally the Hong Kong and China allocations were reduced, while South Korean stocks were increased. The fund management slightly reduced its investment ratio at the end of the month, so that the share of equities decreased to 97.51% (98.86% previous month).
