Performance explanation

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundInvestmentExplanations.date,'llll') ]}}

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was 1.15%. Robeco BP US Premium Equities lagged the Russell 3000 Value Index in March, with stock selection and sector allocation detracting from relative performance. Stock selection detracted in the industrials and energy sectors of the market. Within industrials, a collection of holdings detracted marginally across different industries, which collectively added up. This included building products companies Masco and Resideo Technologies, electrical equipment company Sensata Technologies and research & consulting services businesses Huron, Leidos, Manpower and Robert Half International. In energy, it was more about what the fund avoided rather than owned. Not owning Chevron, which soared 13%, was the largest detractor in the sector. An area which contributed strongly to stock selection was healthcare, with inexpensive biotech AbbVie and providers & services businesses McKesson, Anthem and AmerisourceBergen all performing strongly. From a sector allocation perspective, having no exposure to the 'bond proxy' sectors of utilities and real estate detracted from performance, while overweight exposure to healthcare added most value.

Expectation of fund manager

{{'fund.detail.general.perDate' | labelize:[ fundDate(fund.fundFacts.date,'llll') ]}}

Currently, we see three issues dominating the investment environment in the near term: 1) The escalation or de-escalation of the war in Ukraine and the West's response to outcomes. 2) If and when inflation begins to subside and 3) What steps the Federal Reserve takes to assure that inflation does subside. For the moment, Covid seems to be taking a back seat to these issues, as it seems to be morphing from a pandemic crisis to an endemic status. We continue to focus on pockets of opportunities in the market at a company-by-company level and as always, the fund remains well positioned with holdings that reflect Boston Partners' three circle characteristics – attractive valuations, solid business fundamentals and identifiable catalysts.
