  • The primary investment objective is the long-term real preservation of the filia.die frauenstiftung’s assets.
  • On a long-term average (7 years), an increase in value of 3% after deduction of all costs is targeted. This includes an annual distribution of interest and dividends of 1.2% after deduction of all costs for the ongoing financing of the foundation’s activities.
  • The investment objective is to be achieved through diversification into various asset classes. Due to the prolonged period of low-interest rates, the following ranges are defined for equities and real estate: Equities: 30 – 45%; Real Estate: 10 – 20%; Fixed Income securities: up to 40%; Other Asset Classes/ Equity Investments: 20%.
