INVESTMENT STYLE

Dr. Dieter Rentsch specializes in identifying global trends with the aims of making profitable investments that adhere to PRI principles. They have a diversified asset allocation which uses research and quantitative models.

Dr. Rentsch believes that real diversification can only be achieved with asset classes that are largely uncorrelated – Four different categories of fixed income allow optimum diversification in a risk parity model.

“There is no point in consulting a crystal ball for advice. It makes more sense to rely on facts. In our strategy, which invests in the sub-asset classes of government bonds, corporate bonds, inflation-linked bonds and emerging market currencies, we prefer to focus on correlations which are permanently changing in relation to each other.”

“The important thing is to seek out the asset classes which behave differently in certain economic and capital market conditions” said Dr. Rentsch.

Dr. Dieter Rentsch defines the asset classes as corporate bonds, emerging markets, inflation-linked bonds and Government bonds. These four asset classes perform differently in the various phase of the business cycle.

Dr. Dieter Rentsch believes that examining the correlations and aligning the portfolio on the basis of this is clearly more advisable than asking a crystal ball for advice.
