Market development

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

Following strong gains in January and February, equities rose again in March, albeit at a slower pace. The MSCI AC World index on balance rose 2.7% for the month in EUR and is up 14.2% year-to-date, reaching a new all-time high at the close of the month. The market put aside worries over Brexit and global trade, the inverted US yield curve, the weak global manufacturing PMIs and continued depressed demand from semis, smartphones and auto customers. It was striking that the IT sector was the best sector of the month, despite for instance Infineon pouring cold water over the semiconductor stocks with its warning. The industrials sector on the contrary did react to the continuing growth slowdown and produced a flat performance.

Currency policy

The fund can engage in currency hedging transactions.

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

With respect to sustainable investing, Robeco Global Growth Trends Equities Fund has integrated ESG factors into its investment process along two lines. Top-down, for instance, in the trend Industrial Renaissance we only invest in renewable energy as we believe this type of generation will gradually push-back fossil fuels. Bottom-up, we check whether ESG-factors pose a risk to the expected returns for individual holdings. This is done within the fundamental analysis with the use of data from RobecoSAM and Sustainalytics and with a particular focus on governance issues.

Investment policy

Robeco Global Growth Trends Equities' investment style focuses on growth by primarily making allocations to promising trends. Rolinco invests in minimum three and maximum four different and independent top-down growth trends. The fund then invests directly into stocks of companies that have as pure as possible exposure to one of these trends. The selection of the trends is the first and most important step in the investment process, as they define the investment universe from which stocks are selected. Current trends that Robeco Global Growth Trends Equities has selected are Digitalization', 'The emerging middle-class', 'The Industrial Renaissance' and 'Getting old and staying healthy'. Robeco Global Growth Trends Equities can anticipate currency developments through active currency management. Risk management is fully integrated in the investment process to ensure that positions meet predefined guidelines. The fund can hold a limited cash position. 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.

Expectation of fund manager

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

At the start of 2019, we were faced with weakening GDP and EPS growth, a common feature of a topping bull market. As a reaction, some central banks have already turned around their tightening policies and stopped raising interest rates. But despite this, we would still argue that after seven years of increasing growth, the likelihood increases we are heading for an economic slowdown. As a result, the operating environment for companies will become more difficult going forward, meaning that margins in general might have already peaked. In such a challenging environment, we continue to prefer companies with a sustainable and secular earnings growth profile. We try to find these growth companies by looking at long-term trends from a top-down perspective. We are in a new era in which, thanks to digitization and new technologies, we will be able to cure most diseases, make financial services cheaper and more accessible to all and on top of that increase our labor productivity sustainably. Stocks that provide the tools and technology for this will grow revenues and cash flows much faster than anyone expects.
