Investment Objectives

The WARBURG-EURO RENTEN-TREND-FONDS attempts to achieve as great a participation as possible in bull markets in the long end of the fixed income market while reducing losses in bear markets. This is done through an active management of the bond maturities. The markets traded are Euro-denominated government bonds of Germany and other European Union countries. The management of the bond maturities is mostly achieved through the use of futures. The fund maturity management decisions are made by a trend-following system(REXTREND Hedge Concept). The objective of the maturity management concept is to achieve a continuous and above average performance over the long term, over a series of bond market cycles.

Investment Strategy and Concept

The bulk of the fund capital is invested in fixed income European government bonds, primarily Bunds, with either short maturities or a short period of time left to redemption. This is considered the base or core of the fund. In phases of falling interest rates the average maturity of the portfolio will be increased in a series of steps through the use of Euro-Bund futures, until the average maturity of the fund is about 10 years. The future positions are considered the trend-portion of the fund.

Through the purchase of bonds with a low nominal yield and short maturities as well as the periodic extension of maturity through futures the fund management aims for a balance between capital gains potential and risk averse positions. This strategy is advantageous from a taxation point of view.

Advantages for the Investor

  • A trend and risk controlled basic investment in the German bond market
  • A systematic use of profit potential in phases of falling interest rates through a step-wise lengthening of the maturities
