ESG Integration policy

Robeco Indian 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.

Expectation of fund manager

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

MSCI India has corrected more than 10% from its highs, now trading at ~17x 1yr fwd PE, which is at premium to the long-term average. We have seen significant stock price corrections in some domestic demand led companies. We had increased some cash levels and moved towards defensive sectors like utilities and consumer staples. We also added to our exposure to technology companies which benefit from the currency depreciation. The portfolio is biased towards companies with strong balance sheets, a strong management pedigree and structural growth story.
