Market development

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

Global equity markets enjoyed a very strong October, driven by a powerful rebound in both the US and Europe, while Asian indices lagged. With inflation worries getting a lot of attention, investors cut fixed income exposure in favor of equities, once again reinforcing the 'TINA' trade ('there is no alternative'). Earnings results across the board were more resilient than many expected, although supply chain worries will clearly continue and ripple effects from the energy crunch will negatively impact global growth down the road. As a consequence, central banks will likely become more hawkish sooner rather than later, adding fuel to the broadening of market leadership into the value segment of the market; most noteworthy, the financials sector.

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

ESG Score

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

The portfolio ESG score (and E,S and G score) is calculated by multiplying the RobecoSAM Smart ESG Score of each holding by its respective portfolio or index weight. The same methodology is applied in calculating the key ESG Criterion scores. The scores of the portfolio are provided alongside the scores of the index, highlighting the portfolio’s relative sustainability. The colors indicate the score of the portfolio, whilst the shading shows the index.

Expectation of fund manager

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

We maintain a positive outlook for global equity markets. Global growth remains robust. There is enough fiscal stimulus on the way and central banks will likely continue to be accommodative, since there is consensus among them that most inflationary pressures are transitory. Earnings growth is still very strong. Valuations are high across the board, but do not strike us as excessive. Technical analysis is also still very strong and market sentiment is not excessively bullish. We do worry a little about the outlook for next year, when economic growth and earnings growth will probably moderate after a post-pandemic recovery. For now, we think that the 'Goldilocks' environment that we are in will continue. In the current market environment, inflationary developments will likely be the key to our outlook. We should remember that there is an important distinction between inflation expectations and realized inflation. Our view is that inflation expectations are already very high, while most inflation drivers are likely to be transitory.
