Fund Classification

ESG integration
Sustainability Themed Fund

Currency policy

Except for the active currency positions, currency risks are partly hedged to the base currency of the fund (EUR). This share class uses an additional NAV currency hedge to minimize the effects of currency fluctuations between base currency of the fund (EUR) and currency of the share class (USD).

Dividend policy

This share class of the fund does not distribute dividend.

ESG Integration policy

Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects are systematically integrated in our highly disciplined investment process in several ways. Firstly, the portfolio’s ESG score is substantially better than the market. This score is developed by sustainability expert RobecoSAM. Also, the environmental footprint on greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, water use and waste generation is expected to be substantially lower than the market. Furthermore, we apply an extensive exclusion list covering various controversial sectors or business practices and we continuously monitor our universe for companies with corporate governance issues, major litigations or regulatory risk. Finally, we conduct proxy voting and engagement activities to improve companies’ behavior on ESG themes. Our enhanced form of ESG integration ensures we avoid the risk of being overexposed to less sustainable companies and captures financially material mid- to long term risks and opportunities like corporate governance and climate change.

Investment policy

The objective of Robeco QI Conservative Multi Asset is to deliver long-term returns in line with a balanced 50/50 mix of equities and bonds, with a risk profile in line with a more defensive 30/70 mix of equities and bonds. It aims to achieve a higher Sharpe ratio than both mixes in the long term. The fund leverages on Robeco’s expertise in managing low-volatility equity and credit portfolios and adds dynamic allocation with a short equity market bias, to mitigate downside risks and to generate a stable return pattern. The aim is to have a balanced exposure to performance drivers and risks. The fund is managed by an experienced team of quantitative investment specialists in multi asset and conservative investing at Robeco. It relies on Robeco’s proven quantitative models for dynamic asset allocation, and for selecting low-volatility stocks and bonds.

Risk policy

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