A bond fund wins Hedge Fund Award
DUEMME SICAV: C-QUADRAT Euro Investment Plus (ISIN LU0551316432) has achieved growth of +38,28 per cent since inception (October 10, 2011), +10,08 per cent p.a. (as of: February 24, 2015). This bond fund has now received a prestigious Hedge Fund Award in recognition of its performance.
In the view of the senior fund manager, Roberto Giacalone, over the next few months the interest-rate level should remain low and price fluctuations could thus remain strong, necessitating rapid and flexible responses from the fund’s management. “Good bond funds increasingly resemble hedge funds. Like hedge funds, we are seeking to act highly flexibly and to recognize and exploit investment opportunities in good time,” says Giacalone of his investment strategy.
