Market development

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

In October, emerging markets experienced a significant drop of 6.4% in euros, performing slightly worse than the 5.0% decline for developed markets. Key reasons for the weak global markets in October were negative headlines on the US-China trade conflict, fears that the US economy is becoming late-cyclical, and a relatively weak global earnings season. Brazil stood out in these weak markets with a 21% rally in euros due to the victory of Jair Bolsonaro in the presidential elections. Although Bolsonaro has made controversial comments on several issues, he has teamed up with well-respected economist Paulo Guedes, supports the much-needed pension reform and in general favors privatizations. Next to Brazil, Qatar and the UAE also performed relatively well. The worst-performing market was Mexico, as the market reacted negatively to the decision of president-elect López Obrador to abandon the development of the partly built new Mexico City airport. Korea, Taiwan and China also performed relatively poorly, impacted by the worries on the US-China trade conflict and global growth. In response to the trade worries, the Chinese government announced several measures to support the economy and market sentiment.

The fund does not distribute dividend. The income earned by the fund is reflected in its share price. The fund's entire result is thus reflected in its share price development.

ESG Integration policy

For Robeco Emerging Markets Equities, ESG factors are incorporated in the investment and decision-making process. A proprietary bi-annual corporate governance questionnaire is an integral part of the fundamental framework. The team assesses shareholder, board, management, government, social and environmental factors where appropriate. The team also includes ESG considerations in their country allocation process. ESG-based considerations impact the stock valuation analysis. Relevant ESG issues are discussed with company management on a case by case basis. Input from RobecoSAM Sustainability analysts is used to further enhance ESG integration in the investment process.

Investment policy

Robeco Emerging Markets Equities invests globally in emerging economies. The focus is on companies which combine a sound business model and solid growth prospects with a reasonable valuation.

The second step is in-depth fundamental analysis of companies and serves to identify stocks with the ability to outperform in the long run. Key items of our fundamental analysis are: growth prospects of sector, position of company within sector, competitive strength, financial health and strategy, corporate governance and management quality. We screen stocks with our proprietary quantitative model for attractive characteristics.

Expectation of fund manager

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

The current market environment for emerging countries can be described as a ‘perfect storm’. The Fed raising rates, geopolitical concerns in some countries (with elections in Brazil, US sanctions in Russia and Turkey), and the fear of trade wars have affected sentiment. How things develop further is essential, but we believe that the situation will normalize. If we are correct, then the market should respond positively, given that the underlying growth remains solid, with earnings in emerging markets expected to rise by around 15% this year on the back of robust top line growth and margin improvements.Currently, too much bad news has been priced in. Going forward, we see very interesting buying opportunities developing across the EM universe as the trade rhetoric subsides.Growth in emerging markets still considerably exceeds that of developed markets and, by and large, inflation is stable. The main risk factors remain politics, which is the case for most emerging countries, and high and rising debt levels in China. Growth in China has been strong this year. Valuations are still attractive as emerging markets trade at a 30% discount versus their developed peers.
