Market development

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

The global stock markets had an increasingly difficult month in October, as Covid-19 infections reached new highs worldwide, prompting governments to implement new restrictions, including partial lockdowns. US lawmakers failed to agree on a new economic aid package before the November elections day, which added to the overall market pressure. In line with the deteriorating economic outlook, oil markets weakened markedly. As investors were searching for safe havens, the dollar gained strength against other currencies. The ‘Smart Mobility’ theme continued to attract investors, as the transformation of the automotive industry towards electrification gained further momentum, with notably Europe and China being seen as the strong growth drivers.

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 Fund 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. Building on our proprietary data and research, we identify companies that generate a competitive advantage through sound business practices, efficiency improvements, and the creation of new solutions for the myriad challenges facing society over the coming decades. Taking a long-term investment perspective, we analyze companies’ business models, market positioning and growth potential, and evaluate their financial performance and valuation. Based on this fundamental assessment, we seek to uncover attractive investment opportunities and implement them in concentrated, conviction-based equity portfolios.

Risk policy

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

Expectation of fund manager

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

Record numbers of new Covid-19 cases put pressure on governments worldwide to introduce additional restrictions and lockdowns. Even though countries appear to be better prepared than in the spring, the economic consequences are likely to be severe, depending on how long the imposed measures last. We therefore expect the stock markets to remain volatile for the time being. Given the ample monetary support from central banks and the likelihood of a more sustained economic recovery if the virus threat is contained, we remain constructive on the mid-term to long-term perspectives of the equity markets. We therefore intend to use the current higher market volatility to further solidify our positions in companies that have very strong long-term business perspectives.Notably in the current soft market environment, car manufacturers and suppliers will continue to take decisive action concerning their future spending plans on capex and R&D. In this context, we expect them to focus even more on electrification (EV) and autonomous driving (AV), which will, in our opinion, just accelerate the transition of the car industry towards EV/AV, both areas we are strongly invested in.
