There was only ever going to be one career choice for Ronald Schneider. At the tender age of 14 he was enrolled into HAK Mödling, the Vienna Business School. After school Schneider progressed to the University of Vienna to study business administration before completing his prodigious studies at the Vienna University of Economics and Business Administration. He joined Raiffeisen Zentralbank in 1996 as an analyst within the economics and fixed income research team before moving into his present position as a fund manager in 2001. He describes his stock selection style for both his funds as fundamentally top down.
The fund invests mainly (at least 51%of its assets) in bonds of issuers with headquarter or business activity in Central and Eastern Europe (including Turkey) and in bonds denominated in currencies of Central and Eastern Europe states (including Turkey). The bonds and money market instruments may be issued by governments, supranational issuers and companies. The fund is actively managed and doesn't track any benchmark.
