Performance explanation

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

Based on transaction prices, the fund's return was -8.27%. The objective of the European Enhanced Indexing strategy is to consistently outperform the MSCI Europe Index by applying a large number of small overweight and underweight positions with respect to the index, resulting in a low tracking error. The portfolio consists of roughly 350 stocks and overweights stocks with an attractive valuation, a profitable operating business, strong price momentum and positive recent revisions from analysts. By using our integrated multi-factor stock selection model, we expect the strategy to consistently outperform the benchmark. Furthermore, the fund has a lower environmental footprint on carbon emissions compared to the benchmark.

Currency policy

The fund may use currency forwards to achieve currency exposures that are close to the benchmark.

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

The fund systematically incorporates sustainability in the investment process via exclusions, ESG integration, ESG and environmental footprint targets, and engagement. The fund does not invest in stocks issued by companies that are in breach of international norms or where its activities have been deemed detrimental to society following Robeco's exclusion policy. Financially material ESG factors are integrated in the portfolio construction to ensure the ESG risk rating is lower than that of the index. In addition, the environmental footprints of the fund are made lower than that of the benchmark by restricting the GHG emissions, water use and waste generation. With these portfolio construction rules, stocks issued by companies with better ESG scores or environmental footprints are more likely to be included in the portfolio while stocks issued by companies with worse ESG scores or environmental footprints are more likely to be divested from the portfolio. In addition, where a stock issuer is flagged for breaching international standards in the ongoing monitoring, the issuer will become subject to engagement.

Investment policy

Robeco QI European Active Index Equities is an actively managed fund that invests in stocks of companies in Europe. The selection of these stocks is based on a quantitative model. The fund's objective is to achieve a better return than the index. The fund aims for a better sustainability profile compared to the Benchmark by promoting ESG (i.e. Environmental, Social and Governance) characteristics within the meaning of Article 8 of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, integrating sustainability risks in the investment process and applying Robeco’s Good Governance policy. The fund applies sustainability indicators, including but not limited to, normative, activity-based and region-based exclusions, and engagement. The fund aims to gain a well diversified exposure to an integrated multi-factor stock selection model and uses a quantitative stock selection strategy which ranks stocks on their expected future relative performance using three factors: valuation, quality and momentum.The majority of stocks selected through this approach will be components of the Benchmark, but stocks outside the Benchmark may be selected too. The fund can deviate from the weightings of the Benchmark to a limited extent. Highly ranked stocks are overweighted against the Benchmark, whereas low-ranked stocks are underweighted, resulting in a well-diversified portfolio with a controlled tracking error relative to the Benchmark of the fund. The fund aims to outperform the Benchmark over the long run, whilst still controlling relative risk through the applications of limits (on currencies, countries and sectors) to the extent of deviation from the Benchmark. This will consequently limit the deviation of the performance relative to the Benchmark. The Benchmark is a broad market weighted index that is not consistent with the ESG characteristics promoted by the fund.

Risk policy

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

Footprint Ownership

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

Footprint ownership expresses the total resource utilization the portfolio finances. Each assessed company's footprint is calculated by normalizing resources utilized by the company's enterprise value including cash (EVIC). Multiplying these values by the dollar amount invested in each assessed company yields the aggregate footprint ownership figures. The selected index's footprint is provided alongside. Sovereign and cash positions have no impact. The portfolios score is shown in blue and the index in grey.

ESG Risk Score

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

The Portfolio Sustainalytics ESG Risk Rating chart displays the portfolio's ESG Risk Rating. This is calculated by multiplying each portfolio component's Sustainalytics ESG Risk Rating by its respective portfolio weight. If an index has been selected, those scores are provided alongside the portfolio scores, highlighting the portfolio's ESG risk level compared to the index. The Sustainalytics ESG Risk Rating distribution chart shows the portfolio allocations broken into Sustainalytics' five ESG risk levels: negligible (0-10), low (10-20), medium (20-30), high (30-40) and severe (40+), providing an overview of portfolio exposure to the different ESG risk levels. If an index has been selected, the same information is shown for the index.
