Currency policy

The fund is allowed to pursue an active currency policy to generate extra returns.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute dividend. The fund retains any income that is earned and so its entire performance is reflected in its share price.

ESG Integration policy

Robeco Chinese A-share Equities 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 Chinese A-share Equities invests in Chinese A-shares: shares of companies of the People's Republic of China, listed in China. The fund is managed by Victoria Mio and advised by the Robeco Research Team in Shanghai, led by Jie Lu. The fund identifies attractive macro-economic themes and selects fundamentally sound companies. The return of the country fund reflects the market development in the relevant country. The portfolio is actively managed. Exchange-rate changes are reflected in the fund's price development. Risk management is fully embedded in the investment process to ensure that the fund's positions remain within set limits at all times. The fund is normally fully invested. This Sub-fund invests in China A-shares via the RQFII and/or a Stock Connect Programme which may entail additional clearing and settlement, regulatory, operational and counterparty risks.

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') ]}}

We believe economic growth in 2019 will face challenges from a slowdown in demand, prolonged trade friction between China and the US and structural problems. Downward earnings revisions pressure will remain, given the escalation of the trade war. On a positive note, valuations are still attractive. At the same time, long-term investor participation is increasing, with inflows from overseas funds continuing during the course of inclusion of Chinese A-shares in the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, and possible net inflows from domestic insurance and pension funds. We believe the market outlook will remain positive in the long run. However, an extended trade war escalation will impose downside risk on China’s growth and labor market. Therefore, we expect policymakers to step up fiscal easing, with the additional stimulus focused more on direct public spending, and to continue monetary easing to facilitate a re-acceleration of government bond issuance. We expect that China will also accelerate domestic reforms to cope with structural challenges and mitigate growth headwinds.
