Performance explanation

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

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was 15.88%. This cluster showed the strongest performance in July, driven by solar and wind equipment companies. Fundamentals, particularly for solar stocks, remain very strong, with electricity prices across the globe continuing to increase and solar energy becoming even more competitive. The Inflation Reduction Act propelled renewable energy stocks even higher. If approved by Congress, the proposed legislation will be a big tailwind for the development of the US market. Energy Management was the second-strongest cluster in July, driven by a strong recovery in the sub-cluster Semiconductor Power Management. Overall, demand from the automotive, industrials and renewables sectors for power semiconductors is still very strong and the Q2 reporting season has confirmed this trend so far. Particularly strong performance came also from the sub-cluster Energy Efficient Big Data, where demand for semiconductors and electrical equipment has proved to be very robust so far. The only material negative contributor in July was XPeng, the leading Chinese electric vehicle manufacturer. The continuing lockdown risk in China has meant accordingly lower sales in July.

Market development

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

Global stocks had by far the best month this year and recovered part of the earlier losses in the first half of the year. Oil prices continued to correct as recession fears overshadowed further potential supply disruption. In contrast, natural gas and consequently also electricity prices in Europe accelerated their upward movement. Increased uncertainty about future delivery of natural gas, mainly through the main pipeline North Stream 1 from Russia to Germany, led the European Parliament to decide on a plan to voluntarily reduce gas consumption. Renewable energy stocks, particularly those exposed to the US market showed very strong returns. Just at the point when most market participants were giving up on the Build Back Better bill, Democratic majority leader Schumer and Senator Manchin struck a new deal, the new Inflation Reduction Act.

Currency policy

Dividend policy

In principle, this share class of the fund does distribute dividend.

ESG Integration policy

The fund's sustainable investment objective is to further the transformation and decarbonization of the global energy sector. The transformation and decabonization of the energy sector and sustainability considerations are incorporated in the investment process by the means of a target universe definition, exclusions, ESG integration, and voting. The fund only invests in companies that have a significant thematic fit as per Robeco's thematic universe methodology. Through screening on both Robeco's internally developed SDG Framework and Robeco’s exclusion policy, the fund does not invest in issuers that have a negative impact on the SDGs, are in breach of international norms or where products have been deemed controversial. 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.

Investment policy

RobecoSAM Smart Energy Equities is an actively managed fund that invests globally in companies providing technologies for clean energy production, distribution, power management infrastructure and energy efficiency. The selection of these stocks is based on fundamental analysis. The fund has sustainable investment as its objective within the meaning of Article 9 of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation. The fund furthers the decarbonization of the global energy sector through investments in clean energy sources, energy efficient products and infrastructure and by the electrification of the industrial, transportation and heating sectors. This is done by investing in companies that advance the following UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs): Affordable and Clean Energy goal, Decent work and economic growth, Industry, innovation and infrastructure, Sustainable cities and communities, and Climate action. The fund integrates ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) factors in the investment process and applies Robeco’s Good Governance policy. The fund applies sustainability indicators, including but not limited to normative, activity-based and region-based exclusions, and proxy voting. The fund also aims to achieve a better return than the index. The strategy integrates sustainability criteria as part of the stock selection process and through a theme-specific sustainability assessment. The portfolio is built on the basis of an eligible investment universe that includes companies whose business models contribute to the thematic investment objectives. The assessment regarding relevant SDGs uses an internally developed framework, more information on which can be obtained at www.robeco.com/si. Benchmark: MSCI World Index TRN. The majority of stocks selected will be components of the benchmark, but stocks outside the benchmark may be selected too. While the investment policy is not constrained by a benchmark, the fund may use one for comparison purposes. 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 sustainable objective of the fund.

Risk policy

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

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') ]}}

Signs are emerging that inflation may have peaked, while growth fears are starting to concern investors. Long-term yields start declining as economic data is getting softer and accordingly, equity valuations have largely fallen back to long-term averages. Uncertainties around further geopolitical escalation and a consequent further rise in energy prices remain a risk for the months to come. We expect global supply chains to remain tight for the rest of the year, as China is slowly coming back from the Covid lockdown. The continuing low global interest rate environment in combination with the recent rise in power prices and energy security concerns should further support the buildout of renewable energy and incentivize investment in energy efficiency and the electrification of the energy system.
