Investment Information


The Value Strategy

Value strategies have become popular above all through star investor Warren Buffett. The long-term performance advantage of value stocks over growth stocks is mainly due to the fact that most market participants are expecting current profit growth rates to continue, being too optimistic about the future, while tending to underestimate the intrinsic value of companies. As a result, value stocks can often be bought below their fair value. The higher intrinsic value compared to the market value of a value company also offers some protection against exaggerated price erosion in times of crisis.

The fund regularly selects and invests in the 100 value stocks with the strongest momentum out of a universe of around 2000 individual stocks which are all constituents of major benchmark indices. Depending on the market situation and according to active risk management, between 50 and 100 percent of the fund assets are typically invested in the value strategy.

Derivative Instruments in Addition to the Value Strategy

Systematic, rule-based trading in futures (exchange-traded forward transactions) on major stock indices such as the DAX, Dow Jones or Nikkei enables us to additionally control the investment level. Because futures can be used to profit from both rising and falling prices, it is possible to noticeably reduce losses in particularly unfavorable market situations (such as long-lasting bear markets).
