About this fund

Robeco QI Global Momentum Equities is an actively managed fund that invests in stocks in developed and emerging countries across the world. The selection of these stocks is based on a quantitative model. The fund's objective is to achieve a better return than the index. In selecting stocks, a systematic approach is used in which the attractiveness of stocks is assessed on both fundamental and technical variables, which are then interpreted by quantitative models. By avoiding unrewarded risk and preventing unnecessary turnover, the fund aims to efficiently harvest the momentum premium. Momentum stands for the focus on medium term trends for equities. The fund invests in stocks with a positive momentum, i.e. equities benefiting from trends, factoring in both stock valuation and risk.

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 ESG scores based on the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment. The ESG integration aims for a total ESG score of the portfolio higher than the index. 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. Moreover, the environmental footprint of the fund is improved by restricting the GHG emissions, water use and waste generation, aiming for lower levels than the index. As a result stocks with relatively low footprints have a higher probability of being selected in the portfolio compared to stocks with poor environmental footprints. Next to ESG integration, Robeco has an exclusion policy and conducts proxy voting and engagement activities.

Investment policy

Robeco QI Global Momentum Equities is an actively managed fund that invests in stocks in developed and emerging countries across the world. 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 corporate Governance) characteristics within the meaning of Article 8 of the European Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation and integrating ESG and sustainability risks in the investment process. In addition, the fund applies an exclusion list on the basis of controversial behavior, products (including controversial weapons, tobacco, palm oil and fossil fuel) and countries, next to voting and engaging. In selecting stocks, a systematic approach is used in which the attractiveness of stocks is assessed on both fundamental and technical variables, which are then interpreted by quantitative models. By avoiding unrewarded risk and preventing unnecessary turnover, the fund aims to efficiently harvest the momentum premium. Momentum stands for the focus on medium term trends for equities. The fund invests in stocks with a positive momentum, i.e. equities benefiting from trends, factoring in both stock valuation and risk.The majority of stocks selected 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. The fund aims to outperform the Benchmark over the long run, whilst still controlling relative risk through the applications of limits (on countries, sectors and issuers) 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 into the investment process to ensure that positions always meet predefined guidelines.

ESG Score

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

The portfolio ESG score (and E,S and G score) is calculated by multiplying the RobecoSAM Smart ESG Score of each holding by its respective portfolio or index weight. The same methodology is applied in calculating the key ESG Criterion scores. The scores of the portfolio are provided alongside the scores of the index, highlighting the portfolio’s relative sustainability. The colors indicate the score of the portfolio, whilst the shading shows the index.

Environmental Footprint

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

The RobecoSAM footprint ownership of the portfolio expresses the total resource consumption the portfolio finances. Each company's footprint is calculated by normalizing resources consumed by the company's enterprise value. Multiplying these values by the dollar amount invested in each company yields the aggregate footprint ownership figures. The selected index's footprint (for an equivalent $ amount invested in corporates) is provided alongside. The portfolios score is shown in blue and the index in grey.

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 momentum factor. Rather than using generic factor definitions, it uses Robeco's enhanced momentum definition to avoid unrewarded risk and maximize its return potential. Generic momentum definitions usually lead to strategies with higher risks, higher drawdowns and large turnovers. Our momentum factor definition aims to adjust for these unwanted effects. Furthermore, the strategy aims to prevent that exposure to the momentum factor results in negative exposure to other factors, like value, low-volatility and quality. By doing so, the strategy avoids 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.
