Market development

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

The start to this new year as well as the decade was quite nervous. Markets were already bracing for a rocky start after the moves from momentum and growth to value and back in the last four months of 2019. It all started with the drone attack of the US on Iran's Qassem Soleimani. After a relatively muted response from Iran, the markets continued their strong start. However, the outbreak of the coronavirus, or better Wuhan virus, seems to develop into a more challenging threat to the markets. Much will depend on how quickly the spread of the virus can be contained and reduced. But the virus and the measures that are being taken will likely cause an economic slowdown in China and perhaps also globally. That could materialize in the Q1 numbers for several of our investments. MSCI All Country World Financials performed relatively poorly, with a negative return in January, versus a flat MSCI All Country World Index, as interest rates are once again falling, with first the Iran worries and now the Wuhan coronavirus.

Currency policy

The fund can engage in currency hedging transactions.

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 New World Financials 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 trend strategies that are based on 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 financial-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 manager selects 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.

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') ]}}

Traditional bank models are becoming increasingly less attractive, because they face ever lower margins as big tech and some fintech companies disrupt their most profitable businesses. Digital finance remains the most powerful and investable trend in global financials. Companies need to enable digitization and provide the right mix of products and services, with ever-increasing added value. Insurers that grasp the importance of data and knowledge about product structuring as well as various health and long-term care solutions, who are in control of risks and able to offer flexible savings solutions, are likely to become tomorrow's leaders in the financial sector. The financial firms that can deliver stable, growing cash flows will deliver superior stock (and dividend) returns. We prefer financials with cash flows that stem from revenue growth with market-leading efficiency that could lead to a rerating. Finally, following years of downward pressure on both short-term and long-term rates, you would expect rates to go up rather than down again. As was the case in 2019, we believe that a global recession is not very likely.
