GBC-Research im Fokus

m:access mit deutlicher Überrendite

Das Mittelstandssegment m:access hat sich im schwierigen Marktumfeld einmal mehr hervorragend behaupten können. Mit einer Gesamtrendite von 8,1 % lag die Wertentwicklung klar über der des DAX. Als eines der Erfolgsrezepte sind dabei unseres Erachtens abermals die Dividenden entscheidend, die einen ordentlichen Renditebeitrag leisten. Der m:access bietet eine ganze Reihe von Unternehmen, welche bereits seit vielen Jahren eine aktionärsfreundliche und transparente Dividendenpolitik verfolgen.
