Commentary 29/12/2017

Who could have imagined such a performance for Swiss equities at the beginning of 2017? At the end of 2016, we were satisfied with the resilience of Swiss companies, especially small and mid caps, which, despite the strong Swiss franc, continued to grow. Since then, global growth has been confirmed, Europe has not imploded and the Swiss franc has depreciated against the euro. Prifund Swiss Equities benefited greatly from its allocation to funds investing in small and mid caps to deliver a robust relative and absolute performance against the All-Cap indices. We took care to regularly cash in part of our profits during the year while monitoring the surge in valuations. Following the sharp hike in prices, we also raised the portfolio's only hedge fund allocation (a market neutral fund) at September's end by way of diversification, preferring this solution over cash. The underweighting given to Nestlé, Novartis and Roche proved to be a good choice.! In contrast, we narrowed the tracking error on the comparison index by investing in two banks, Crédit Suisse and UBS — an allocation that was profitable only in the second half of the year. Richemont was invested in directly during the summer (and Swatch, in November) on the assumption that all the bad news was already in the market with short interest still very much in evidence. We are convinced that 2018 will be a year of surprises, with major macroeconomic developments unfolding. What's more, an earlier-than-expected end to QE in Europe and even Japan is not to be ruled out.

(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.
