BI SICAV - New Emerging Markets Equities I

The sub-fund invests in a wide range of frontier market countries in Africa, Middle East, Eastern Europe, Asia and Latin America, which are part of the MSCI Frontier Markets index. The sub-fund can also hold a small weight in companies from the MSCI Emerging Markets index or in countries that are not included in any MSCI indices. The sub-fund invests in companies in frontier market countries for example Kazakhstan and Nigeria. These are countries, which are at an early stage of economic development, but characterized by a rapid economic growth. Frontier market countries are economically attractive, but also characterized by a large degree of uncertainty and instability compared to more developed countries like Brazil. The sub-fund may use financial derivative instruments in order to reduce risk or as part of the investment strategy.

Sharpe Ratio 1.13
Information Ratio 0.47
Tracking Error (%) 4.62


Standard Deviation measures the variation of returns over a period of time. If the returns in average are close to the expected return, the Standard Deviation is low. If the returns in average are far from the mean, it is high. Typically bond funds have a lower Standard Deviation than equity funds.

Sharpe Ratio expresses how much a return on investment has generated compared to the historical risk. The figure is being used as a comparative figure to rank different risk-adjusted returns on investment. The higher the Sharpe Ratio, the better risk-adjusted returns on investment.

Information Ratio expresses how much outperformance a fund has generated in relation to the risk that has been relative to the benchmark. Information Ratio indicates the quality of the risk-adjusted to outperformance of a fund. The higher the Information Ratio, the better risk-adjusted performance on investment.

Tracking Error expresses the variation in the difference between the returns of the fund and the corresponding benchmark. Tracking Error is an expression of the Standard Deviation of the excess return. A low Tracking Error is equal to low volatility of the monthly performance, and a high Tracking Error is equal to high fluctuations.

Please note that there are no risk key figures for funds that are less than three years old.
