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

For Robeco Chinese Equities, our focus regarding ESG integration is on corporate governance and in our fundamental assessment of companies we analyze the factor 'management and corporate governance'. We look at the historical behavior of the company vis-a-vis the protection of minority-shareholder interests. Also we investigate the composition of the board and appreciate a higher content of truly independent board members. Finally, we will assess the quality of the audit committee as it is a first protection against fraud. In the quantitative ranking that we use, one of the factors is the RobecoSAM Company score.

Investment policy

Robeco Chinese Equities invests in leading listed Chinese or China-related companies. The country-fund return reflects market developments in the country concerned. Your portfolio is actively managed. Exchange-rate changes are reflected in the fund's price. 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 may invest in China A-shares via the QFII and/or a Stock Connect Programme which may entail additional clearing and settlement, regulatory, operational and counterparty risks.

Risk policy

Active. Risk management systems continually monitor the portfolio's divergence from the benchmark. In this way, extreme positions are avoided.

Expectation of fund manager

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

The Chinese economy is experiencing a deceleration in growth, but we expect it to bottom out in the second quarter and get on the path to a moderate cyclical recovery. This is due to the time lag in the transmission of monetary policy and pressure from external demands caused by trade tariffs – on top of already moderating domestic discretionary consumption, industrial activities and property sales/investments. China’s economy is expected to grow between 6% and 6.5% in 2019, as challenges related to trade conflicts and structural reforms are likely to be a drag on growth. However, we are more optimistic and expect a bullish equity market outlook for 2019, as many external and internal risk factors have played out. Corporate earnings revisions have stabilized with an upward bias, and valuations remain below the historical average. Opportunities are emerging in the industrials, consumer and technology sectors, which will continue to drive the economy and gradually represent a larger share of it.
