Overview of performance of ETF portfolios in Purple Trading - Q2 2020

As we pointed out before, none of our ETF portfolios is actively managed and it basically copies the development on the main stock indices only passively. Therefore, its performance mirrors the development of global financial markets quite precisely.

We have already described the main events on financial markets here, so let’s take a look at how it affected the performance of portfolios.


Mixed portfolios


(Performance charts on June 30, 2020, fees included)


Each of the three mixed ETF portfolios contain the same underlying ETF instruments, but the differences between them are only in the allocation of invested client funds between the bond and stock based ETFs. Therefore, charts of each of the three portfolios look very much alike and they vary only in nominal values with deviations between profits and losses.

When we described the situation three months ago, it was a summary of quite a hectic and turbulent quarter, which has had an amazing start and pretty steep downfall due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trend in the second quarter of 2020 was more straightforward and it was pretty much all positive. 

Positive news about the declining numbers of newly infected patients throughout the world in the end of May, and then mainly the billions of dollars being pumped into the main world economies resulted in very optimistic mood in the markets as well and pretty much all the indices commenced their journey back in the growing direction. For example the NASDAQ100 index, which follows technological US companies, has even reached its all time high in the end of June, and has increased even further in July.

Not all the indices recovered so fast, and the European or Asian markets are recovering more slowly than the US ones, which is also one of the reasons why we have not seen the full recovery on none of the ETF Portfolios yet.

Currently, the numbers of infected patients are increasing again, especially in the US, and we will be curious whether the optimism in the markets persists. 

And so how did the actual numbers look like?

Purely stock portfolios 


(Performance charts on June 30, 2020, fees included)

Purely stock ETF portfolios consist of ETF instruments, copying only stock indices, so this is a riskier, but also more interesting category from the potential profits point of view.

So, it’s not a surprise that in case of Global stocks portfolio, its development was similar as in case of portfolios above. We experienced a deeper drop here with regards to the events Q1, but the great result of +15.61% in Q2 helped to get this portfolio back to positive numbers too. This has surely pleased many investors who managed to top up their portfolios with additional deposits in March and April, as we informed last time.

Last portfolio in our offer is the so-called “sector-based” portfolio, focused on the health-care industry and aging population. Logically, the healthcare industry is currently booming and the huge amount of money inflows to the pharmaceutical companies, as the race to create the vaccine against coronavirus is still on. This portfolio therefore experienced a similar development as the other ones and it actually recorded the best quarterly results so far. If you think that this industry should still be the one to benefit from the current situation the most, it could be an interesting investment choice.
