The outbreak of war in Ukraine continues to have a negative impact on financial markets. The sanctions introduced in recent days, including the cutting off of large Russian banks from the SWIFT system and the isolation of Russia from financial markets, have had an impact on today's quotations of sub-funds with exposure to entities linked to this market.
The value of financial instruments of entities linked to the Russian market is subject to daily analysis.
The valuation of units as at 28.02.2022 takes into account the valuation of debt securities linked to the Russian market at less than half of their nominal value, and in some cases even at around one tenth of this value.
The share of Russian market-related assets in the portfolios of funds managed by Generali Investments TFI continues to be reduced.
One should also take into account the behaviour of the valuation of other components of portfolios which, although not related to the Russian market, also react to the current situation. An example of this is treasury bonds with floating rate coupons, which recorded a drop in valuations today.
The exposure of Generali Investments TFI subfunds to entities with direct Russian risk was as follows as at 28 February 2022:
In the subfund Generali Obligacje: New Europe it was 5.12% and in the sub-fund Generali Obligacje: Global Emerging Markets exposure was 0.96%. The exposure to these entities was related to the nature of these solutions and the investment policy.
Generali Obligacje Aktywny and Generali Korona Obligacje: below 0.7%.
SGB Dłużny 0.52%.
Short-term debt funds in PLN:
In the Generali Korona Dochodowy sub-fund, the exposure to Russian entities is 2.25%. In sub-fund Generali Aktywny Dochodowy 1.58%.
In the Generali Oszczędnościowy sub-fund 0.34% and in the Generali Profit Plus sub-fund 0.67%.
Short-term debt funds in other currencies:
In the Generali Dollar sub-fund, the exposure is 0.95%.
In the Generali Korona Zrównoważony sub-fund and in the Generali Stabilny Wzrost sub-fund below 0.5%.
The Generali Shares sub-fund: New Europe has an exposure of 12.25%, which results from its investment policy of investing in the CEE and CIS region.
The other sub-funds managed within the FIO and SFIO Funds do not have exposure to instruments with direct Russian risk.
