Rodrigo Gutierrez, General Manager of Ciedess, detailed that in their historical results, the riskiest funds are the ones that have rented the most.
“The good results obtained by the riskier funds are due to mixed results in international markets. But above all, on the rise at the national level of Selective Stock Price Index (IPSA) and also the exchange rate with an increase of around 3% ”, said Gutiérrez.
The riskiest funds, types A and B, register increases of 1.84% and 1.47% respectively, while the moderate risk fund, Type C, presents a variation of 0.82%. For their part, the most conservative funds obtain positive results of 0.22% for Type D and 0.17% for Type E.
