During 2019, all the SICAV’s sub-funds delivered a healthy performance, with the majority of the funds registering double-digit growth. This was achieved against a background of strong global markets and supportive central bank interventions worldwide. In this environment, the CC Euro Equity Fund registered a remarkable performance of 27.5 per cent (the average five-year annual performance of the CC Euro Equity Fund from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2019 is 4.8 per cent) for the year ended December 31, 2019 on the back of its mixed global allocation.

Also significant was the performance registered by the CC Global High Income Bond Fund which registered a return in excess of 10 per cent (the average five-year annual performance of the CC Global High Income Bond Fund from January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2019 is four per cent) for the whole of 2019. The locally invested funds, represented by the CC Malta Government Bond Fund and the CC Malta Balanced Income Fund also had a very positive year, benefitting from a regular flow of new funds.

So far, the current financial year was impacted by the unprecedented challenges brought about by the spread of the coronavirus. Despite the extreme market volatility, the SICAV continued to register net inflows in the first four months of the year as our funds remain sufficiently liquid to benefit from any rebound in market performance.
