* Past performance figures are not a reliable indicator of future performance. They show performance in the form of net returns generated by KBC Asset Management's defensive and dynamic investment strategies (after charges have been deducted for the year in question). Only the first line is for six years (cumulative period). The net results (i.e. after charges) are for private investors whose tax residence is in Belgium. The only tax not included is the stock market tax that clients pay when they get out of their investment.
** The reference period for the annual performance is 7 January through 31 December, and the seven-year reference period covers 1 January 2014 to 31 December 2020.
