DB Platinum CROCI Global Dividends fund surpasses $500 million in assets

Thursday 24th April 2014

Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management’s (DeAWM) DB Platinum CROCI Global Dividends fund has surpassed $500 million in assets under management (AUM), as the Cash Return on Capital Invested (CROCI) ‘real value’ investment methodology continues to attract assets. 
 
Across all DeAWM product wrappers, CROCI sustainable dividends investments now have over $2.35 billion in assets, with the combined AUM of the DB Platinum CROCI Global Dividends fund and the DB Platinum CROCI US Dividends fund now exceeding $600 million. The first quarter of 2014 has seen consistent inflows into the CROCI fund range. In the US meanwhile $1.25 billion in the DWS Equity Dividend Fund is also being managed using the CROCI US Dividends Strategy. 
 
Over the past 12 months (22 April 2013 to 22 April 2014) the DB Platinum CROCI Global Dividends fund has outperformed the MSCI World High Dividend Yield Index by 5.1%, while the DB Platinum CROCI US Dividends fund has outperformed the S&P High Yield Dividend Aristocrats Index by 6.8% (Bloomberg). 
 
Francesco Curto, DeAWM’s Global Head of CROCI, commented: “The CROCI process continues to identify real value in equity markets, which is why it is attracting increasing numbers of investors. On the dividend theme in particular, dividends should remain a key consideration for investors as CROCI shows that equity valuations are at fair-value levels, while real corporate revenue growth in markets such as the US continues to be weak.”
