Currency policy

The fund is allowed to pursue an active currency policy to generate extra returns.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute dividend. The fund retains any income that is earned and so its entire performance is reflected in its share price.

ESG Integration policy

Robeco Chinese A-share Equities integrates ESG factors into its investment process by analyzing the impact of financially material ESG factors to a company’s competitive position and value drivers. We believe that this enhances our ability to understand existing and potential (long-term) risks and opportunities of a company. The impact of material ESG factors can be positive or negative, reflecting risks or opportunities, that ensue from a company’s ESG analysis. If ESG risks and opportunities are significant, the ESG analysis could impact a stock’s fair value and the portfolio allocation decision. In addition to ESG integration, Robeco also has an exclusion policy and conducts proxy voting and engagement activities focused on specific themes, such as climate change, aiming to improve a company’s sustainability profile.

Investment policy

Robeco Chinese A-share Equities is an actively managed fund that invests in Chinese A-shares. The selection of these stocks is based on fundamental analysis. The fund's objective is to achieve a better return than the index. The fund promotes ESG (i.e. Environmental, Social and corporate Governance) characteristics within the meaning of Article 8 of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation and integrates ESG and sustainability risks in the investment process. In addition, the fund applies an exclusion list on the basis of controversial behavior, products (including controversial weapons, tobacco, palm oil and fossil fuel) and countries, next to voting and engaging. The fund identifies attractive macro-economic themes and selects fundamentally sound companies which can be large caps, midcaps and/or small caps. The fund selects primarily domestic Chinese stocks (A-shares).The majority of stocks selected will be components of the Benchmark, but stocks outside the Benchmark may be selected too. The investment policy is not constrained by a Benchmark but the fund may use a benchmark for comparison purposes. The fund can deviate substantially from the issuer, country and sector weightings of the Benchmark. There are no restrictions on the deviation from the Benchmark. The Benchmark is a broad market weighted index that is not consistent with the ESG characteristics promoted by the fund.

Risk policy

Risk management is fully integrated into the investment process to ensure that positions always meet predefined guidelines.

Expectation of fund manager

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

For 2021, we remain constructive on the Chinese market outlook. Despite the unlikeliness of a full reset of the US-China relationship under a prospective Democratic administration, we expect US-China relations to improve. Still, tensions will remain in some areas. We expect President Biden's approach towards China to be more predictable than that of the former administration. This would be an improvement for the markets. China is continuing its domestic reforms, including the modernization of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) to ensure that they become more efficient, and the support of private sectors after the coronavirus outbreak. Our focus in the coming period is on the effectiveness of policy support, the domestic demand driven by infrastructure spending and consumption recovery, and the technology and innovation driven by 5G and new energy investments.
