How Does The Investment Strategy of The Optimo Commodity Guaranteed Fund Work?

Fund performance depends on the performance of the underlying basket of commodity indices which is supplemented with active volatility management. The content of the basket remains unchanged and includes 2 commodity indices:

  • Dow Jones-UBS Gold Index – factors in the development of gold price
  • Dow Jones-UBS Commodity Index 3 Month Forward consists of 24 different types of commodities the actual proportion of which is determined for each calendar year (as of 1 January 2012 the index is represented by 20 commodities selected and allocated as follows: 32.7% energy, 30.5% agriculture, 18.6% industrial metals, 12.5% precious metals, 5.7% livestock)

Calculation of monthly performance of the underlying commodity index basket

Commodity basket’s monthly performance = basket’s actual monthly performance

Recorded monthly performance of the commodity basket

  • If the basket’s monthly performance is positive, then 75 % of the gained value is recorded
  • If the basket’s monthly performance is negative, the same value is entered into the records

The cumulative performance of the basket is calculated on the basis of the recorded commodity basket monthly performances. Each cumulative performance of the basket achieved after the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th year is locked. The highest one of the 6 locked values shall equal the yield paid out upon the fund’s maturity.

Upon maturity, the client obtains:

100 % of the invested capital (after deduction of administrative fees)+Highest of annual cumulative basket performances (equal to 0 in the worst-case scenario)

Examples of the Optimo Commodity Guaranteed Fund performance calculation

Example 1 – clients receive a yield of 47.1 % on their investment

Example 1 – clients receive a yield of 47.1 % on their investment
Month Start M1 M2 M12 M24 M36 M48 M60 M72
Commodity basket performance 100 104 108   121   141   152   164   159   155
Monthly performance of the commodity basket   4,0% 3,8%   3,4%   3,7%   4,8%   4,5%   2,6%   2,0%
Recorded monthly performance of the commodity basket   3,0% 2,9%   2,6%   2,8%   3,6%   3,4%   2,0%   1,5%
Cumulative performance for past months   3,0% 6,0%   15,9%   24,3%   36,8%   47,8%   38,7%   40,0%
Payment upon maturity 100% + Max [ 0% ; 47,8% ] = 147,8%

In this case, a yield of 47.8 % is paid out upon the fund’s maturity as the highest annual performance of the commodity basket was achieved, and therefore locked, in the 4th year of the fund’s existence./p>

Example 2 – clients receive 100 % of invested funds (after deduction of administrative fees)

Example 2 – clients receive 100 % of invested funds (after deduction of administrative fees)
Month Start M1 M2 M12 M24 M36 M48 M60 M72
Commodity basket performance 100 98 93   89   86   97   92   85   82
Monthly performance of the commodity basket   -2,0% -5,1%   -3,3%   -5,5%   -2,0%   -4,2%   -2,3%   -6,8%
Recorded monthly performance of the commodity basket   -2,0% -5,1%   -3,3%   -5,5%   -2,0%   -4,2%   -2,3%   -6,8%
Cumulative performance for past months   -2,0% -7,0%   -6,2%   -4,5%   -5,0%   -8,0%   -3,3%   -8,7%
Payment upon maturity 100% + Max [ 0% ; -3.3% ] = 100,0%

In this case, the highest annual performance of the commodity basket is negative. Nevertheless, the client obtains 100 % of his/her investment (after deduction of administrative fees) upon the fund’s maturity thanks to the guaranteed return of the invested amount.

The above given examples are for illustration only and in no way predict the future performance of the Optimo Commodity Guaranteed Fund.
