Market development

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

The month of August was quite two-faced for global equity markets: initially continuing the rebound we saw in July, but eventually ending down around -3%. What got lost in the run-up and ultimately hit back towards the back-end of the month were actually the same concerns hurting markets year-to-date, most notably the continuation of high inflation and an overall global economic slowdown. In addition, US House speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan, followed by military drills by China in the area, spooked markets in an already tense geopolitical environment. In addition, nervous labor markets with on the one hand strikes and tough wage negotiations, and on the other hiring freezes and even layoffs in the tech space for example, added to the market turmoil. We do see some sunlight piercing through the clouds, with the notorious supply chain bottlenecks slowly easing and most commodity prices coming off peak highs, which ultimately should pair back to more normalized levels. However, at this stage, we still see mixed macro data points, keeping us firmly up the quality curve in terms of portfolio positioning.

Currency policy

The fund is allowed to pursue an active currency policy to generate extra returns and can engage in currency hedging transactions.

Dividend policy

This share class of the fund will distribute dividend.

ESG Integration policy

The fund’s sustainable investment objective is to drive a clear and measurable improvement in a company's contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) over three to five years. SDG and sustainability considerations are incorporated in the investment process by the means of a target universe, exclusions, ESG integration and engagement. The fund solely invests in stocks issued by companies with a low negative to low positive impact on the SDGs. The impact of issuers on the SDGs is determined by applying Robeco's internally developed three-step SDG Framework. The outcome is a quantified contribution expressed as an SDG score, considering both the contribution to the SDGs (positive, neutral or negative) and the extent of this contribution (high, medium or low). The fund actively engages with 100% of the corporate holdings. The fund does not invest in stock issuers that are in breach of international norms or where activities have been deemed detrimental to society following Robeco's exclusion policy. Financially material ESG factors are integrated in the bottom-up fundamental investment analysis to assess existing and potential ESG risks and opportunities. In addition, where a stock issuer is flagged for breaching international standards in the ongoing monitoring, the issuer will become subject to exclusion. Lastly, the fund makes use of shareholder rights and applies proxy voting in accordance with Robeco's proxy voting policy.

SDG Contribution

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

The SDG score shows to what extent the portfolio and the benchmark contribute to the 17 UN Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs). Scores are assigned to each underlying company using the Robeco SDG Framework, which utilizes a three-step approach to calculate a company’s contribution to the relevant SDGs. The starting point is an assessment of the products offered by a company, followed by the way in which these products are produced, and finally whether the company is exposed to any controversies. The outcome is expressed in a final score which shows the extent to which a company impacts the SDGs on a scale from highly negative (dark red) to highly positive (dark blue). The bar shows the aggregate percentage exposure of the portfolio and the benchmark (shaded) to the different SDG scores. This is then also split out per SDG. As a company can have an impact on several SDGs (or none), the values shown in the report do not sum to 100%. More information on Robeco’s SDG Framework can be found at: https://www.robeco.com/docm/docu-robeco-explanation-sdg-framework.pdf

Expectation of fund manager

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

We have become more cautious on our outlook for developed market equities, as macro risks have clearly increased. Global economic growth is slowing down significantly and we think that the possibility of an economic recession in parts of the world is rising. We also see consumer strength moderating and especially consumer sentiment has turned outright bearish. At this stage we do have to prepare for a scenario where the economic spillover from the invasion of Ukraine is more severe than previously thought. We think that there will be overall demand destruction from surging inflation. We also must not forget about Covid just yet, with several strict lockdowns in China resurfacing once again. All in all, despite valuations having reached more normalized levels, we remain more cautious near term, given ongoing inflation concerns and the impact on equity fund flows from broader geopolitical uncertainty. Our strategy has firmed up on our quality exposure so as to navigate the current environment as well as possible.
