Market development

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

In May, the MSCI Emerging Markets Index declined by 6.7% in euro terms, underperforming the 5.2% decline for developed markets. The key negative event was the escalation in the US-China trade negotiations. The US claims that China backtracked on earlier agreements and therefore canceled suspension of import tariff hikes for USD 200 billion of Chinese goods and threatened to also impose a further 25% tariff on the remaining USD 325 billion of Chinese imports. As a consequence, China was the worst performing country, while Korea and Taiwan were also among the weaker markets. The best performing countries were Russia, Greece and Brazil.Another very important event was the election outcome in India, which delivered a clear victory for the current Modi government, allowing for continuation of current policies. Trade policy also became a topic again for Mexico, as President Trump imposed a 5% import tariff on Mexican goods in relation to illegal migration. Finally, by the end of the month, Saudi Arabia and Argentina entered the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

Dividend policy

The fund does not distribute dividend. The income earned by the fund is reflected in its share price. The fund's entire result is thus reflected in its share price development.

ESG Integration policy

For Robeco Emerging Markets Equities, ESG factors are incorporated in the investment and decision-making process. A proprietary bi-annual corporate governance questionnaire is an integral part of the fundamental framework. The team assesses shareholder, board, management, government, social and environmental factors where appropriate. The team also includes ESG considerations in their country allocation process. ESG-based considerations impact the stock valuation analysis. Relevant ESG issues are discussed with company management on a case by case basis. Input from RobecoSAM Sustainability analysts is used to further enhance ESG integration in the investment process.

Investment policy

Robeco 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.

Expectation of fund manager

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

Two important global factors have changed for the positive. Fed Chairman Jerome Powell sent a more dovish message on interest rate increases this year, and the headlines on the China-US trade negotiations indicate a trade deal has become more likely. Both are positive developments for emerging markets. Emerging markets remain attractively valued at around a 25% discount to developed markets, while average GDP growth will be around 4% versus 2% in developed markets. Earnings expectations, however, are still coming down, although expectations are not particularly high with growth estimated at 6%. Finally, sentiment has improved with renewed inflows into the asset class.
