  • Report of the portfolio manager - 2 quarter 2020

    In the second quarter, the markets were able to partially recover from their lows in March. Falling infection rates and massive support from fiscal and monetary policy measures provided a boost. The lifting of the lockdown in most regions and hopes of an early return to normality provided additional support. The PostFinance Pension 45 closed the second quarter in positive territory with 7.47%. Swiss equities (12.40%), global equities in CHF (17.19%) and emerging market equities in CHF (15.64%) all made a positive contribution. CHF bonds, CHF-hedged government bonds (0.73%) and corporate bonds (7.45%), Swiss real estate (1.87%) and commodities (5.81%) were also up.
