Yearly performance (in %, in fund base currency)**

** The performance is calculated in accordance with the OeKB method. It already includes the management fee. However, the illustration is net of the one-off load of up to 3,50 %, which falls due at the time of purchase, and of other fees that reduce the return as well as of the individual account and deposit fees. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of the future performance of a fund.

Unless explicitly noted otherwise, performance figures for periods of less than five years always start from the launch of the fund. Performance figures for periods of less than 12 months in particular are not indicative of a fund’s development due to their short-term nature.
