Fund objective
Deutsche Invest I Africa is the Fund for the whole of Africa. The focus is currently on countries like South Africa, Egypt, Nigeria and Ghana. Selecting securities is based on a mix of the bottom-up approach, in which the fundamental data of companies is reviewed, and the top-down method, in which the focus is on the selection of countries and industries. In each case, Fund management follows the DWS maxim by which solid companies with strong growth are only bought at a price that Fund management views as sensible and reasonable.
