Market development

August was a volatile month for financial markets. The month started with a tweet from President Trump announcing an intention to impose a 10% tariff on USD 300 billion of Chinese imports. This triggered retaliatory measures from China. The renewed escalation of trade tensions and the growing economic consequences triggered profit-taking in global equity markets in August. The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index dropped by 1.8% in August. The FTSE Eurotop 100 Index, consisting of the 100 largest pan-European companies, dropped by 1.7% as Brexit uncertainty keeps dominating headlines. The Japanese Topix Index and the MSCI Emerging Markets Index were both down more than 3% due to the rising China-US tensions. The MSCI World All Country Index (in EUR) dropped 1.3% (2.4% in USD) in August.

Currency policy

The fund can engage in currency hedging transactions. Typically currency hedging is not applied.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute dividend. Any income earned is retained, and so the fund's entire performance is reflected in its share price.

ESG Integration policy

Robeco Global Consumer Trends Equities integrates ESG factors into its investment process by analyzing the impact of financially material ESG factors to a company’s competitive position and value drivers. We believe that this enhances our ability to understand existing and potential (long-term) risks and opportunities of a company. The impact of material ESG factors can be positive or negative, reflecting risks or opportunities, that ensue from a company’s ESG analysis. If ESG risks and opportunities are significant, the ESG analysis could impact a stock’s fair value and the portfolio allocation decision. In addition to ESG integration, Robeco also has an exclusion policy and conducts proxy voting and engagement activities focused on specific themes, such as climate change, aiming to improve a company’s sustainability profile.

Investment policy

Allocation to long-term growth trends offer possibilities of outperforming the broader market over a 3-5 year investment horizon. This trend fund invests in companies in consumer-related industries worldwide that benefit most from the selected long-term trends. Global population growth, urbanization, higher household incomes, technological changes and growth in emerging markets are the main drivers for our trend strategies. The fund managers select the companies that have as pure as possible exposure to the selected trends and themes. Proprietary valuation models are used to select stocks with good earnings prospects and a reasonable valuation. Companies are individually assessed on the basis of in-depth discussions with corporate management and consultations with internal and external analysts. This Sub-fund may invest in China A-shares via the QFII and/or a Stock Connect Programme which may entail additional clearing and settlement, regulatory, operational and counterparty risks.

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') ]}}

Macroeconomic data continues to point to relatively slow growth for the global economy. The Federal Reserve recently shifted towards a more dovish stance, citing rising uncertainties in the US economic outlook. In Europe, economic momentum remains slow and interest rates hover near the zero lower bound and are negative in countries like Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Emerging markets continue to show higher growth, although here too the market is concerned about the impact of the trade war on Chinese growth.
