Market development

The listed real estate climbed further, with the S&P Developed Property Index up 9.7% YTD. Style rotation within equities continued and, typical for the growth to value rotation, we saw higher levered and high dividend stocks outperforming. Forecasts for economic growth and inflation are rising, with government bond yields moving up. US 10Y Treasury yields increased from 1.40% to 1.74%. The high single-digit return in March demonstrates that the performance of the listed real estate sector is not just a function of yield movements. This was also the conclusion of our white paper 'Added value of listed real estate in a strategic asset allocation'. Furthermore, recent months also show that cap rates have in fact come down in absolute terms despite rising interest rates.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute dividend. Any income earned by the fund is reflected in its share price.

ESG Integration policy

Robeco Sustainable Property Equities integrates ESG at every stage of the investment process. We use sustainability performance rankings as a first indication of a company’s sustainability profile. In addition we use it to exclude the worst 20% scoring stocks from the investable universe. We then analyze 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 risks and opportunities of a company. If ESG risks and opportunities are significant, the ESG analysis may impact a stock’s fair value and the portfolio allocation decision. Throughout the investment process, we strive for a low environmental impact, as measured by GHG emissions, water use and waste generation, with the aim of realizing at least 20% better levels than the index. In addition to ESG integration, Robeco’s dedicated active ownership team conducts proxy voting and engagement activities focused on specific themes, such as climate change, aiming to improve a company’s sustainability profile. Furthermore, the fund will not invest in companies exposed to the following controversial sectors or business practices: military contracting, controversial weapons, fire arms, UN Global Compact breaches, tobacco, palm oil, nuclear power, thermal coal, arctic drilling and oil sands, according to strict revenue thresholds.

Investment policy

Robeco Sustainable Property Equities is an actively managed fund investing in equities from developed countries around the world. The selection of these stocks is based on a fundamental analysis. The fund's objective is to achieve a better return than the index. The fund aims for a better sustainability profile compared to the Benchmark by promoting certain ESG (i.e. Environmental, Social and corporate Governance) characteristics within the meaning of Article 8 of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation and integrating ESG and sustainability risks in the investment process. In addition, the fund applies an exclusion list on the basis of controversial behavior, products (including controversial weapons, tobacco, palm oil and fossil fuel) and countries, while avoiding investment in thermal coal, weapons, military contracting and companies that severely violate labor conditions, next to proxy voting and engagement. The fund also aims for an improved environmental footprint compared to the Benchmark.This fund is the first to identify strong global trends in the real estate sector. Within these trends, this fund focuses on companies with the best prospects in the sector. The fund managers use carefully developed models to choose stocks with good earnings expectations and reasonable valuation. The fund aims at selecting stocks with relatively low environmental footprints compared to stocks with high environmental footprints. The investment policy is not constrained by a benchmark but the fund may use a benchmark for comparison purposes. The majority of stocks selected will be components of the Benchmark, but stocks outside the Benchmark may be selected too. The fund can deviate substantially from the issuer, country and sector weightings of the Benchmark. There are no restrictions on the deviation from the Benchmark. The Benchmark is a broad market weighted index that is not consistent with the ESG characteristics promoted by the fund.

Risk policy

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

Expectation of fund manager

Given the uncertainty about the impact and duration of the Covid-19 pandemic, stock prices might be volatile for some time. However, following the large Covid-19-related correction in property stock prices, the sector is attractively valued, creating an opportunity for long-term investors. With an approx. 3.5% underlying dividend yield, the global property sector is an attractive asset category for investors. Looking at longer-term periods in history, we find that the sector has generated attractive returns versus general equities. Ownership of property assets offers an attractive income stream and the opportunity to benefit from land value appreciation.
