Current Market situation comment
Aktualności / 2022-03-03 / autorzy: Generali Investments

The valuation of funds managed by Generali Investments TFI, published today, takes into account subsequent actions of the managers aimed at reducing the share of assets with exposure to the Russian market.

The estimated share of assets with exposure to the Russian market, in the net asset value (NAV) of the sub-funds, including concluded transactions, was as at 2 March 2022 as follows:

Bond funds:

Generali Obligacje Aktywny and Generali Korona Obligacje: below 0.2%.
SGB Debt: below 0.2%.

Short-term debt funds in PLN:

Generali Korona Dochodowy: below 0.3%.
Generali Aktywny Dochodowy: below 0.2%.
Generali Oszczędnościowy: estimated exposure close to zero.
Generali Profit Plus: below 0.1%.

Short-term debt funds in other currencies:

Generali Dolar: below 0.2%.

Mixed funds:

Generali Korona Zrównoważony and Generali Stabilny Wzrost: below 0.1%.

Equity funds:

No exposure (except for the Generali Akcje: Nowa Europa fund).

At the time of preparing this commentary, a higher share of assets with exposure to the Russian market than estimated for the other sub-funds remains in three sub-funds: Generali Akcje: Nowa Europa, Generali Obligacje: Nowa Europa and Generali Obligacje: Globalne Rynki Wschodzące. The level of exposure results from the nature of these solutions and the investment policy.

The remaining sub-funds managed within FIO and SFIO umbrellas do not have exposure to instruments with direct Russian risk.

In the portfolios of the sub-funds managed within the Generali Horyzont SFIO Umbrella Fund, since the beginning of the fund's existence there has been and still is no exposure to the Russian market.

It should be noted that the level of fund valuations is also influenced by the behaviour of valuation of other components of portfolios, which, although not related to the Russian market, also react to the current situation. In the valuation of fund units, in addition to changes in the value and volume of assets with exposure to the Russian market, an increased level of volatility of other asset classes is still visible, especially Polish treasury bonds with variable coupon.
