Market development

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

The global stock markets were searching for direction following last year's prolonged rally, with stock valuations having gone up and asset bubbles becoming visible. The patchy rollout of the vaccines did not help either. Meanwhile, the Fed continued to reassure the markets, confirming the current asset purchases and considering tapering them only after real GDP has regained its pre-pandemic level. The strong momentum in the clean energy space continued, as the new US administration is rapidly joining the global community in its efforts to decarbonize the energy sector. President Biden plans to spend USD 2 trillion over the next four years on the renewal of infrastructure. A large part of this is reserved for energy efficiency needs and further electrification through renewables.

Sustainability Themed Fund

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 RobecoSAM Smart Energy Equities strategy invests in companies that provide competitive and sustainable solutions to the growing need for clean, efficient, and reliable energy production and consumption. It employs systematic, bottom-up stock selection that combines proprietary Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) data and research throughout the investment process. ESG criteria for exclusions and theme-specific suitability are applied during universe construction. An in-house Sustainability Investing (SI) research team integrates financially-material sector and company-specific sustainability analysis into investment cases. A dedicated thematic equity team incorporate SI research within fundamental analysis and stock valuations. Impact assessments of controversial incidences affecting portfolio holdings provide additional risk management. An active ownership and engagement team interacts directly with company management of fund holdings, offering additional channels for sustainable impact.

Investment policy

Our investment philosophy is grounded in the core belief that the integration of ESG factors into a disciplined, research-driven investment process leads to better-informed investment decisions and better risk-adjusted returns through an economic cycle.

Risk policy

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

Expectation of fund manager

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

Stock market volatility is likely to remain elevated as retail trader speculations in the US create pockets of asset bubbles. On a macro level, the economic outlook continues to be uncertain at best, given the slow rollout of Covid-19 vaccines. Overall, fund management remains constructive on the markets, with the Fed reiterating that it would maintain its ultra-easy monetary policy for as long as it takes for the job market to recover, and provided inflation remains moderate. The strategy's focus continues to be on smart grid suppliers, semiconductor power management and battery companies, notably for (electric) automotive applications, firms that improve the data centers' power efficiency and companies that provide energy efficient solutions for the industrials and buildings end markets.
