Market development

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

In another very macro driven market, global equities rebounded significantly in the month of October, up over 6%. The market seems to have a "pivot" on its brain, meaning the US Federal Reserve may be inching towards a slower pace of rate hikes, perhaps already early next year, causing equities to rally. However, this view seems more based on hope than facts as both inflation and labor market data points remain unsupportive of a softer Fed messaging. Moreover, October was again an eventful month in which we saw the resignation of UK PM Liz Truss, a directionless China Party Congress outcome and continued high inflation prints across Europe. In addition, a string of notable earnings misses added to concerns about the outlook for 2023, where estimates still seem to be too high. Still, all this was not enough for another leg down in equity markets, indicating the bounce is more technical in nature rather than driven by improving fundamentals. Our stance is that we are not out of the woods yet from a macro point of view. Hence, we remain cautiously positioned with a clear preference for stronger balance sheet stocks that are high up the quality curve.

ESG Integration policy

The fund incorporates sustainability in the investment process by the means of a target universe, exclusions, ESG integration and engagement. The fund solely invests in stocks issued by companies with a low negative to low positive impact on the SDGs. The impact of issuers on the SDGs is determined by applying Robeco's internally developed three-step SDG Framework. The outcome is a quantified contribution expressed as an SDG score, considering both the contribution to the SDGs (positive, neutral or negative) and the extent of this contribution (high, medium or low). The fund actively engages with 100% of the corporate holdings typically for a period of three to five years. The fund does not invest in stock issuers that are in breach of international norms or where activities have been deemed detrimental to society following Robeco's exclusion policy. Financially material ESG factors are integrated in the bottom-up fundamental investment analysis to assess existing and potential ESG risks and opportunities. In addition, where a stock issuer is flagged for breaching international standards in the ongoing monitoring, the issuer will become subject to exclusion. Lastly, the fund makes use of shareholder rights and applies proxy voting in accordance with Robeco's proxy voting policy.

SDG Contribution

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

The SDG score shows to what extent the portfolio and the benchmark contribute to the 17 UN Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs). Scores are assigned to each underlying company using the Robeco SDG Framework, which utilizes a three-step approach to calculate a company’s contribution to the relevant SDGs. The starting point is an assessment of the products offered by a company, followed by the way in which these products are produced, and finally whether the company is exposed to any controversies. The outcome is expressed in a final score which shows the extent to which a company impacts the SDGs on a scale from highly negative (dark red) to highly positive (dark blue). The bar shows the aggregate percentage exposure of the portfolio and the benchmark (shaded) to the different SDG scores. This is then also split out per SDG. As a company can have an impact on several SDGs (or none), the values shown in the report do not sum to 100%. More information on Robeco’s SDG Framework can be found at: https://www.robeco.com/docm/docu-robeco-explanation-sdg-framework.pdf

Expectation of fund manager

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

The US Fed still seems to hold the key for equity markets, but it is dancing a delicate dance. It both needs to remain firm on curbing inflation and not allow financial conditions to ease too much, while at the same time show an exit path away from further rate hikes. Once we hit the point where yields start to stabilize or even start to drop, equities will likely benefit, something the market was already overly eager to bet on in the past month, in our opinion. At this stage it is, however, far from clear how much damage the economy has to stomach from central bank policies and by how much corporate earnings will have to be reset next year. Fortunately, we are finally seeing the worst of supply chain disruptions behind us and core goods inflation stabilizing, but overall inflation levels remain stubbornly high and more broad-based across the economy. Moreover, valuations are not yet near trough levels and with a highly uncertain trajectory of earnings estimates, the setup for equities therefore remains tricky.
