Expectation of fund manager

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

With the soft reopening of several states, along with support from President Trump, we will begin to see how the level of new cases reacts with less American sheltering in place. We continue to think that most citizens will be cautious, but an increase in the spread of the virus will undoubtedly impact the market. Retail businesses will continue to be in focus as many announce store closures amidst financial strain. Fiscal stimulus has helped so far, but market sentiment has not changed significantly as most investors are nervous. We will continue to track potential opportunities, as the market valuation spreads are at historical levels. Value is now nearly 20% behind growth on a year-to-date basis, despite the fairly similar impact on a wide variety of companies other than the stay at home / work from home names. Boston Partners will continue to construct portfolios in a consistent manner, focused on attractive valuation, strong business fundamentals and improving business momentum.
