Performance DIVAS Eurozone Value - The rotation has only just started

by Hansueli Jost

Last week the DIVAS Eurozone Value appreciated by 18.32% generating an Alpha of +895 basis points. Over the last 2 ½ months the fund appreciated by 53.41% delivering an Alpha of 1526 basis points. The great new is that the Value factor has so far from the March lows only outperformed the benchmark by 2.46% and the growth factor by 5.62%, i.e. the rotation has literally only just started. Following the 130 percentage points Value factor underperformance over the last 11 years versus growth, this normalisation has long legs. Most important of all, no one so far believes in it!
