Sustainability Themed Fund

Currency policy

Currency risk will not be hedged. Exchange-rate fluctuations will therefore directly affect the fund's share price.

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

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors are systematically integrated in the highly disciplined investment process, by using the ESG scores from the RobecoSAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment. The ESG integration aims for a total ESG score of the portfolio higher than the index. Moreover, the scores on the Environmental, Social and Governance dimensions should also be higher than the index, to ensure that the ESG enhancement is reached across all three dimensions. This ensures that stocks with higher ESG scores are more likely to be included in the portfolio while stocks of companies that have very poor ESG scores are more likely to be divested from the portfolio. With these portfolio construction rules we aim for an ESG profile of the fund that is above average compared to its peers. In addition, stocks with corporate governance issues or stocks that have major litigation or regulatory risk may be excluded from the investable universe. Next to ESG integration, Robeco has an exclusion policy and conducts proxy voting and engagement activities based on International Corporate Governance Network objectives.

Investment policy

Robeco QI European Value Equities invests in stocks in developed and emerging countries in Europe. The selection of these stocks is based on a quantitative model. The fund invests in stocks with a low price to fundamentals. The fund's long-term aim is to harvest the value premium by selecting the most attractive value stocks. The selection of these value stocks is carried out using a quantitative model, which ranks stocks in a variety of ways, including valuation criteria, solid earnings potential, low risk and momentum.

Risk policy

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

Expectation of fund manager

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

The fund follows a bottom-up driven investment strategy to gain exposure to the proven value factor. Rather than using generic factor definitions, it uses Robeco’s enhanced definition to avoid unrewarded risk and maximize its return potential. For example, a generic value factor may lead to investments in distressed stocks that are cheap for a reason. Our proprietary distress-risk model helps to identify these risks and avoids such companies. Furthermore, the strategy aims to prevent that exposure to the value factor results in negative exposure to other factors, like momentum, quality and low-volatility. By doing so, the strategy aims to avoid unwanted and unintended factor tilts. It is a rules-based process that tries to avoid unnecessary transaction costs by only buying stocks if the expected gains outweigh the costs of the trade.
