Currency policy

Except for the active currency positions, currency risks are partly hedged to the base currency of the fund (EUR).

Dividend policy

This share class of the fund does not distribute dividend.

ESG Integration policy

Sustainability stands at the core of the fund and is an integral part of Robeco’s overall strategy. Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects are systematically integrated in our highly disciplined investment process in several ways. Firstly, the portfolio’s ESG score is substantially better than the reference index. This score is developed by sustainability expert RobecoSAM and covers approximately 4,500 companies. Also, the environmental footprint of greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption, water use and waste generation is expected to be substantially lower than the reference index. Furthermore, we exclude Controversial Weapons, companies with Controversial Behavior and Tobacco from the investable universe and we continuously monitor our universe for companies with corporate governance issues, major litigations or regulatory risk. Finally, we conduct proxy voting and engagement activities to improve companies’ behavior on ESG themes. All the above results in an ESG profile of the fund that is, on average, substantially better than that of its peers.

Investment policy

The objective of Robeco QI Conservative Multi Asset is to deliver long-term returns in line with a balanced 50/50 mix of equities and bonds, with a risk profile in line with a more defensive 30/70 mix of equities and bonds. It aims to achieve a higher Sharpe ratio than both mixes in the long term. The fund leverages on Robeco’s expertise in managing low-volatility equity and credit portfolios and adds dynamic allocation with a short equity market bias, to mitigate downside risks and to generate a stable return pattern. The aim is to have a balanced exposure to performance drivers and risks. The fund is managed by an experienced team of quantitative investment specialists in multi asset and conservative investing at Robeco. It relies on Robeco’s proven quantitative models for dynamic asset allocation, and for selecting low-volatility stocks and bonds.

Risk policy

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