Commentary 30/04/2018

It was a month of two halves for the precious metal. Initially climbing to its highest level since January, the price of gold reversed mid-month as geopolitical tensions eased and the probability of a hike in interest rate gained momentum. Early in the month, gold prices were supported by Trump's threat to impose additional tariffs on China. Gains were extended when the US, UK and France sanctioned military action on Syrian targets – a response to an alleged chemical attack on a suburb of Damascus. By mid-month, the tide had turned on the back easing geopolitical tensions with North Korea and a trade war with China. In particular, expectations of further rate hikes following hawkish minutes from the FOMC's March meeting weighed on the precious metal. Gold gave back all its mid-month gains to end April in the red.In this market environment, the gold overlay programme was able to build up a hedged position in the second part of the month, limiting drawdowns.

(1) The rating grades the funds on a scale from 1 to 7. This rating system is based on the average fluctuations of the net asset value over the past five years. It corresponds to the variation range of the portfolio upwards and downwards. If the net asset value is less than 5 years old, the rating is determined by other regulatory calculation methods. Historical data such as those used to calculate the rating may not be a reliable indication of the future risk profile. The current category is neither a guarantee nor an objective. Category 1 does not signify a risk-free investment.
