Currency policy

Currency risk will not be hedged. Exchange-rate fluctuations will therefore directly affect the fund's share price.

Dividend policy

In principle the fund distributes dividend on an annual basis.

ESG Integration policy

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are systematically integrated in the highly disciplined investment process, by using the ESG scores from the RobecoSAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment. The ESG integration aims for a total ESG score of the portfolio higher than the index. Moreover, the scores on the Environmental, Social and Governance dimensions should also be higher than the index, to ensure that the ESG enhancement is reached across all three dimensions. This ensures that stocks with higher ESG scores are more likely to be included in the portfolio while stocks of companies that have very poor ESG scores are more likely to be divested from the portfolio. With these portfolio construction rules we aim for an ESG profile of the fund that is above average compared to its peers. In addition, stocks with corporate governance issues or stocks that have major litigation or regulatory risk may be excluded from the investable universe. Next to ESG integration, Robeco has an exclusion policy and conducts proxy voting and engagement activities based on International Corporate Governance Network objectives.

Investment policy

The Robeco QI Global Multi-Factor Equities Fund mainly invests in stocks that are attractive according to one or more quantitative factor strategies. Examples of quantitative factor strategies include a strategy that takes advantage of the premium in stocks with lower risk (Low-Volatility), a strategy that takes advantage of the premium in stocks with attractive valuations (Value), a strategy that takes advantage of the premium in stocks with high quality characteristics (Quality) and a strategy that takes advantage of the premium in shares at a favorable price trend (Momentum). Currency risk is not hedged.

Risk policy

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

Fiscal product treatment

The fund is established in the Netherlands. The fund is managed as a 'naamloze vennootschap' (public limited company). 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. From 1 January 2007 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

For private investors residing in the Netherlands real interest and dividend income or capital gains received on their investments are not relevant for tax purposes. Participating units held by private investors who are taxpayers in the Netherlands belong in Box 3. If and insofar as an investor's net assets exceed the net wealth exemption limit, said investor is liable from 1 January to pay 1.2% annually on the balance of his or her net assets. Investors residing in the Netherlands may offset the Dutch dividend tax withheld (15% as at 1 January 2007) against their income-tax payment. 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 dividend-tax refund in the Netherlands. The above is based on the current fiscal legislation and regulation.
