Market development

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

The year started with a political surprise. Contrary to earlier expectations, the US Democrats won both remaining seats for the Senate in the runoff election in Georgia. Investors reacted positively to this ‘blue wave’, as Democrat lawmakers can now more easily enact their legislative agenda. In fact, as one of his first actions, Joe Biden signed an executive order to have the US rejoin the Paris Climate Agreement. After a turbulent change of government, the markets focused on earnings for the last quarter of 2020. So far, a vast majority of companies reported numbers beating consensus estimates. Banks improved on profitability and the big tech names celebrated another set of record numbers. Investors also honored the better-than-expected economic figures. Despite partial lockdowns, the Q4 GDP in the US grew 4% QoQ. The forward-looking PMI confirmed the positive trend in economic activity. Nevertheless, towards the end of the month, the stock market lost some of its momentum. Delays in the Covid-19 vaccination weighed on sentiment.

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

In principle the fund does not intend to distribute dividend and so both the income earned by the fund and its overall performance are reflected in its share price.

ESG Integration policy

RobecoSAM Global SDG Equities invest in companies whose products and services create a positive impact on the SDGs. It employs systematic, bottom-up stock selection that combines proprietary Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) data and research throughout the investment process. ESG criteria for exclusions and theme-specific suitability are applied during universe construction. An in-house Sustainability Investing (SI) research team integrates financially-material sector and company-specific sustainability analysis into investment cases. A dedicated thematic equity team incorporates SI research within fundamental analysis and stock valuations. Impact assessments of controversial incidences affecting portfolio holdings provide additional risk management. An active ownership and engagement team interacts directly with company management of fund holdings, offering additional channels for sustainable impact.

Investment policy

Our investment philosophy is grounded in the core belief that the integration of ESG factors into a disciplined, research-driven investment process leads to better-informed investment decisions and better risk-adjusted returns through an economic cycle. Building on our proprietary data and research, we identify companies that generate a competitive advantage through sound business practices, efficiency improvements, and the creation of new solutions for the myriad challenges facing society over the coming decades. Taking a long-term investment perspective, we analyze companies’ business models, market positioning and growth potential, and evaluate their financial performance and valuation. Based on this fundamental assessment, we seek to uncover attractive investment opportunities and implement them in concentrated, conviction-based equity portfolios.

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') ]}}

After a period with very low market volatility, warning signals of an overheating equity market became more apparent. Various surveys pointed towards a very high consensus among institutional investors. Their portfolios all are fully invested in equities, while cash is kept to a minimum. As nobody feels the need to hedge the positions, the put-call ratio stands at a record low. In such an environment, equities might become more vulnerable on negative news. The course of the virus and the progress of vaccinations as well as a potential surge in inflation remain the most critical factors. However, despite the possibility of some short-term volatility, equities are still well supported by an accelerating economy, an accommodative monetary policy and additional fiscal stimulus. In Asia, especially in China, the economic activity is rapidly returning to its pre-crisis growth path. The US and Europe are expected to follow after the vaccination programs are rolled out further and Covid-19 is finally brought under control. Global GDP is expected to grow 5% in 2021.

Fiscal product treatment

The fund is established in Luxembourg and is subject to the Luxembourg tax laws and regulations. The fund is not liable to pay any corporation, income, dividend or capital gains tax in Luxembourg. The fund is subject to an annual subscription tax ('tax d'abonnement') in Luxembourg, which amounts to 0.05% of the net asset value of the fund. This tax is included in the net asset value of the fund. The fund can in principle use the Luxembourg treaty network to partially recover any withholding tax on its income.

Fiscal treatment of investor

The fiscal consequences of investing in this fund depend on the investor's personal situation. For private investors in the Netherlands real interest and dividend income or capital gains received on their investments are not relevant for tax purposes. Each year investors pay income tax on the value of their net assets as at 1 January if and inasmuch as such net assets exceed the investor’s tax-free allowance. Any amount invested in the fund forms part of the investor's net assets. Private investors who are resident outside the Netherlands will not be taxed in the Netherlands on their investments in the fund. However, such investors may be taxed in their country of residence on any income from an investment in this fund based on the applicable national fiscal laws. Other fiscal rules apply to legal entities or professional investors. We advise investors to consult their financial or tax adviser about the tax consequences of an investment in this fund in their specific circumstances before deciding to invest in the fund.
