Market development

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

Global stock markets continued to correct in April. Already stretched supply chains suffered another hit with the strict Covid-19 policy in China and consequent lockdown in Shanghai. Energy prices continued their upward path as uncertainty around Russia increased further. Not surprisingly, inflation numbers around the world remained high and interest rates continued their upward trajectory, which put further pressure on growth stocks. The US dollar strengthened substantially in April, driven by interest rate differentials and risk haven moves by investors. The Q1 earnings season so far was to a large extent robust. Most pressure was felt in the tech sector, particularly from former Covid-winners, as growth rates normalized and companies struggled to meet high expectations. Carbon prices in Europe recovered to above EUR 80 levels after the sell-off. In the short term, renewable energy stocks in particular came under renewed pressure in April, as tight supply chains continued to negatively impact results. Semiconductor stocks suffered from the overall risk-off environment, despite continued strong pricing power due to tight supply leading to robust Q1 results and 2022 outlook so far.

Name Sector Weight
{{fund.fundInvestmentExplanations.top10}}

Currency policy

The fund is allowed to pursue an active currency policy to generate extra returns and can engage in currency hedging transactions.

Dividend policy

In principle the fund does not intend to distribute dividend and so both the income earned by the fund and its overall performance are reflected in its share price.

ESG Integration policy

The fund's sustainable investment objective is to further the transformation and decarbonization of the global energy sector. The transformation and decabonization of the energy sector and sustainability considerations are incorporated in the investment process by the means of a target universe definition, exclusions, ESG integration, and voting. The fund only invests in companies that have a significant thematic fit as per Robeco's thematic universe methodology. Through screening on both Robeco's internally developed SDG Framework and Robeco’s exclusion policy, the fund does not invest in issuers that have a negative impact on the SDGs, are in breach of international norms or where products have been deemed controversial. 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.

Investment policy

RobecoSAM Smart Energy Equities is an actively managed fund that invests globally in companies providing technologies for clean energy production, distribution, power management infrastructure and energy efficiency. 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 has sustainable investment as its objective within the meaning of Article 9 of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation. The fund furthers the transformation and decarbonization of the global energy sector through investments in clean energy production sources, energy efficient products and infrastructure as well as technologies supporting through the electrification of the industrial, transportation and heating sectors. This is done by investing in companies that advance the following UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs): Affordable and clean energy, Decent work and economic growth, Industry, innovation and infrastructure, Sustainable cities and communities, Responsible consumption and production, and Climate action. Alongside proxy voting and engagement, the fund applies Robeco’s Exclusion Policy of excluding investments in companies exposed to controversial behavior and controversial products (including weapons, tobacco, palm oil, fossil fuel, military contracting, firearms, nuclear power, cannabis, alcohol, gambling, adult entertainment and cannabis). The strategy integrates sustainability criteria as part of the stock selection process and through a theme-specific sustainability assessment. The portfolio is built on the basis of an eligible investment universe that includes companies whose business models contribute to the thematic investment objectives. The assessment regarding relevant SDGs uses an internally developed framework, more information on which can be obtained at www.robeco.com/si. Benchmark: MSCI World Index TRN. The majority of stocks selected will be components of the benchmark, but stocks outside the benchmark may be selected too. While the investment policy is not constrained by a benchmark, the fund may use one 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 sustainable objective of the fund.

Risk policy

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

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') ]}}

Putting aside the uncertainty of inflation, global economic recovery is continuing at a robust pace. Recent developments regarding Covid-19 are improving and the lockdowns in China should be temporary, as the impact of Omicron turned out to be less severe than that of previous variants. Geopolitical tensions are adding uncertainty as Russia has invaded Ukraine. Certain supply chains are expected to remain tight well into 2022. The inflationary pressure is likely to peak in the coming months, as the Fed has become increasingly hawkish. The continuing low global interest rate environment in combination with the recent rise in power prices and energy security concerns should further support the buildout of renewable energy and incentivize investment in energy efficiency and the electrification of the energy system.
