  • Report of the portfolio manager - 4 quarter 2022

    The PostFinance High Dividend Fund achieved a performance (net of fees) of 7.09% in Q4 2022, outperforming the benchmark which posted a return of 4.94%. The share of Swiss equities (around 70%) was positive at 6.33% and outperformed the benchmark, which returned at 4.32%. Global equities hedged to CHF (around 30%) were also positive with a performance of 9.23%, outperforming their benchmark that posted a return of 6.37%. The global equity market rally that started in October ran out of steam in the last month of the year, amid renewed anxiety over the pace of central bank tightening and the deteriorating growth outlook. A full dovish pivot in central bank policy is still to come. While the Fed and others have slowed the pace of hikes, the task of bringing inflation back to target will continue into 2023.
