Mirae Asset Global Dynamic Fund, launched in June 2009, seeks high return and stability. With a set amount of 1.3 trillion won, it is the largest in scale among domestic funds investing in overseas bonds.
The fund selects high-quality bonds around the world and is currently investing in over 500 global bonds in 50 countries.
The fund has recorded 83.37 percent in yield since its launch, which amounts to an annual average of 8 percent.
What also sets the fund apart from others is its low standard deviation in its return. The average annual standard deviation of the fund is below 2 percent, recording the lowest level of volatility among overseas bond funds that have been on the market for one to five years.
A low standard deviation is an indicator of the stable operation of the fund. This is because the lower the standard deviation, the lower the volatility and hence the steadier the return.
The achievement of this fund is attributed to Mirae Asset Global Investment's global network. The fund is operated 24 hours a day, through cooperation between Korea and the U.S. This is done by the U.S. taking over operations when Korea's working hours are over.
Research personnel across the globe analyze overseas bonds to find high-quality ones and seek high profitability and stability through diversified investment.
According to fund evaluator Zeroin, Mirae Asset accounts for more than 34 percent of the 6 trillion won trusted in foreign bond funds.
Kim Jin-ha, an executive of Mirae Asset Global Investment's Global Fixed Income division, said "Mirae Asset Global Dynamic Fund grew with the needs of investors for products that seek higher yields than fixed deposits but are stable."
"We are making utmost efforts for the stable operation of customers' assets by diversifying assets into various global bond sectors, rather than concentrating investment on a certain foreign bond sector."
