Vontobel Fund - Dynamic Commodity


Fund strategy

The Vontobel Fund - Dynamic Commodity aims to participate in the growth of the commodity markets over the medium to long term. It invests mainly in time deposits, short-term money market instruments and interest-bearing securities with a residual term to maturity of a maximum of thirty months as well as complex investment instruments such as swap transactions. These swap transactions derive their value from the broad-based commodities markets (benchmark indices) or exchange-traded commodities or similar certificates, making it possible to share in the value growth of the global commodities markets. The sub-fund may also hold cash. Derivatives can be used for hedging, to efficiently manage the portfolio and to achieve the investment objective.
