Manager comment
Manager comment
Markets got off to a good start in the first month of the year, especially the AI-related technology sector. This confirms our view to remain anchored in the technology sector and diversify into the healthcare and financial/insurance sectors. We remain of the view that long-term government bonds can make a positive contribution to portfolio results over the next 18 months, making the equity-bond combination very efficient going forward.
