Date Amount

Market development

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

In September, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index was up 0.4% in euro terms, beating the developed markets which were down 1.5%. In emerging markets, the performance of information technology stood out, up almost 10%. Consumer discretionary was the only other emerging market sector to advance during September. Value sectors were again lagging their growth counterparts. It was a pretty flat month, due to the lack of additional stimulus in the US, more uncertainty going into the US Presidential elections as well as the rise in the number of new virus cases in Europe. Emerging Asia was the best-performing region, up 2%, whereas EMEA and Latin America were down 4.6% and 6.7% respectively. Tech-heavy Korea and Taiwan performed strongly. India also outperformed nicely on the back of a strong run by the software sector, even though Indian activity data continued to be patchy. Commodity prices plunged on investor concerns over the sustainability of the sharp recovery in economic activity witnessed over the past few months, with Brent oil price falling 10% over the month.

Dividend policy

All of the fund's income is reinvested after deduction of costs and withholding tax. Within three months of the close of the financial year, participants can indicate whether they want the dividend to be reinvested or distributed.

ESG Integration policy

Robeco Institutional Emerging Markets Fund 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

Robeco Institutional Emerging Markets Equities invests globally in emerging economies. The focus is on companies which combine a sound business model and solid growth prospects with a reasonable valuation. The first step in portfolio composition is the top-down country selection, as research shows that country specific factors drive stock returns in emerging markets. The second step is in-depth fundamental analysis of companies and serves to identify stocks with the ability to outperform in the long run. Key items of our fundamental analysis are: growth prospects of sector, position of company within sector, competitive strength, financial health and strategy, corporate governance and management quality. We screen stocks with our proprietary quantitative model for attractive characteristics. On average, the fund invests in 100-120 companies. Risk management is fully integrated in the investment process to ensure that positions meet predefined guidelines and the portfolio is well diversified. The fund can protect investors from negative currency developments through active currency hedging. The fund aims to be fully invested. Robeco Institutional Emerging Markets Equities aims to outperform the MSCI Emerging Markets Index over a full market cycle.

Risk policy

Active. The risk management system continually monitors the portfolio's divergence from the benchmark. In this way, extreme positions are avoided.

The outlook for this year has changed dramatically due to the global outbreak of the coronavirus. Large parts of the world economy have contracted significantly, and earnings for many companies have come down. Massive support from governments and central banks is easing the economic pain, but new Covid-19 infections are still at a high level globally and some countries have to deal with a second wave. In the emerging world, China, Korea and Taiwan have been able to contain the spread of the virus relatively well, and are doing also relatively well in terms of economic growth. Other emerging countries are more severely affected and many countries have not yet reversed the upward trend in new infections. Still, we believe that emerging markets remain attractively valued compared to developed markets. Large emerging countries like Brazil, South Africa, Russia and India are impacted by the coronavirus, but their equity markets and currencies have already corrected significantly. At the same time, the countries that are managing the virus relatively well (China, Taiwan and Korea), make up more than 65% of the emerging equity universe.

Fiscal product treatment

The fund is established in the Netherlands. The fund is a mutual fund that is open in the sense of the Dutch Corporate-Income Tax Act 1969. The fund has the status of 'fiscal investment institution' in the sense of article 28 of the Dutch Corporate-Income Tax Act 1969 and, as such, is taxed at a corporate-income tax rate of 0%. The fund is obliged to pay out the realized current income in the form of dividend within 8 months after the end of the financial year. The fund withholds Dutch dividend tax at a rate of 15% from these dividend payments. The fund can in principle use the Dutch treaty network to partially recover any withholding tax on its income.

Fiscal treatment of investor

Investors who are not subject to (exempt from) Dutch corporate-income tax (e.g. pension funds) are not taxed on the achieved result. Dutch tax-exempt bodies may seek a full refund on the 15% dividend tax withheld on dividends (25% prior to 1 January 2007). Interest income is exempt from tax withheld at source. Investors who are subject to Dutch corporate-income tax can be taxed for the result achieved on their investment in the fund. Dutch bodies that are subject to corporate-income tax are obligated to declare interest and dividend income in their tax return. In principle, Dutch bodies that are subject to corporate-income tax may offset the 15% dividend tax withheld on dividends (25% prior to 1 January 2007) against the corporate-income tax and seek a refund of the excess amount. Investors residing outside the Netherlands are subject to their respective national tax regime applying to foreign investment funds. Shareholders who do not pay tax in the Netherlands and who are resident in countries that have a tax treaty with the Netherlands to prevent double taxation may seek a refund for part of the Dutch dividend tax from the Dutch tax authorities, depending on the treaty. As of 1 January 2007, a pension fund having its registered office in another EU member state is also entitled to a Dutch dividend-tax refund. The above is based on the current fiscal legislation and regulations in the Netherlands. We advise individual 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.
