Performance explanation

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

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was -8.67%. Robeco BP US Premium Equities marginally outperformed the Russell 3000 Value Index in June, with stock selection aiding returns. Stock selection added most value in the healthcare and financials sectors of the market in the fund, with energy being the main detractor for the month. In the more defensive value sector of healthcare, the fund's holdings held up relatively well, with contributions spread across several industries. AbbVie (biotech), managed health care companies Centene, Humana and UnitedHealth, distributor McKesson and pharmaceutical holdings Johnson & Johnson, Novartis and Merck all added value over the turbulent period. Financials were led by the insurance industry, with RenaissanceRe, Chubb, Global Life and White Mountains all contributing, while not owning Berkshire Hathaway also added to relative returns. Energy gave back some of its strong year-to-date gains, with Marathon Oil, Diamondback, Devon and Whiting Petroleum all down 20% or more. Detraction from sector allocation came mainly from the fund having underweight exposure to consumer staples, no exposure to the highly regulated sector of utilities and overweight exposure to information technology.

Market development

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

During June, Covid and the ongoing war in Ukraine took a back seat to a broadening set of inflationary price pressures, a resolute Federal Reserve and escalating fears of a recession on the laundry list of investors' concerns. By the 13th of the month, the S&P 500 had officially entered bear market territory, down -21.82% from its January 3rd peak. For the month, the stock market benchmark fell by -8.26%, its worst June since the global financial crisis of 2008, and at -16.11% and -19.96%, the worst quarter and first half of a year since 1970.

Expectation of fund manager

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

In the near-to-intermediate term, we see four primary drivers that will influence how investors make decisions and ultimately how markets behave: inflation, the Fed's actions, a potential recession and earnings. While Covid and the Russia/Ukraine war could certainly spring to the top of investors' concerns at any time, they fall into the 'known unknowns' category and are much harder to predict than even the four items mentioned above. For the time being, neither should be considered as a positive for overall asset prices. As always, we will remain focused on bottom-up stock selection and the fund remains well positioned with holdings that reflect Boston Partners' three circle characteristics – attractive valuations, solid business fundamentals and identifiable catalysts.
