ÖKOWORLD Group’s business is focused on asset management, insurance brokerage and advisory services. It is one of Germany’s pioneers in socially responsible investing (SRI) and ethical-ecological investment advice and was founded in 1975. It preserved its successful core investment principles and reached AUM of over €1.3bn at end-June 2019.
ÖKOWORLD (ÖWAG) has demonstrated over the past months that despite volatile market conditions, it can leverage the positive sentiment towards sustainable investment to drive growth in assets under management (AUM) beyond €1.3bn. The healthy ytd performance allowed most of the funds managed by its subsidiary, Ökoworld LUX, to rebound to the record high levels set in Q318. However, we note that H119 results were largely assisted by a dividend payment from an ÖWAG-related company. To generate significant performance fees in FY19, which are one of ÖWAG’s key earnings drivers, the funds need to post strong positive returns in H219 as well.
