Market developments per 2018-07-31

In July, European markets rose. Despite worries about the trade wars, companies in general reported strong quarterly results helping to lift the overall stock market. KEHDF performed in line with the market, and is slightly trailing the market on a year to date basis.

Our performance was negatively impacted by allocation effects but this was more than offset by strong stock selection. Sector allocation was the weakest in healthcare, that performed well in July. KEHDF is underweight in healthcare. MedioBanca, an Italian bank was our best performer. Strong results and reduced worries surrounding Italy helped to re-rate the shares. Another bank, Svenska Handelsbanken also reported strong results. Publicis was our weakest performer for the month. Publicis reported a slight decline in revenues. Although margins are either stable or expanding, the low growth increases fears of disruption. While the media-landscape is changing significantly, we believe marketing agencies will remain needed for creative work and managing a complex set of media channels.

Portfolio developments per 2018-07-31

Strategies that are value oriented have had difficulty keeping up with the market so far, this year. Relative to the market, value stocks have gotten more attractive this year. Our portfolio trades at only 12.6x earnings, based on the last twelve-month earnings. This compares to the MSCI Europe Index trading at an earnings multiple of almost 16x. We don’t know when this will reverse, but we do know what we are buying. In the long run stock returns should reflect the earnings stream of a business. We believe our current portfolio is now priced to deliver strong long-term returns. On a portfolio level we expect earnings growth, but even if this does not materialize, long-term returns should be satisfactory.

Our focus is on finding companies with sustainable dividends that can be bought at a discount to our estimate of intrinsic value. We base our estimate on the Earnings Power Value (EPV) framework of the Columbia Business School. EPV allows us to separate the three valuation components: asset value, earnings power and growth value. This framework improves our ability to analyze what we are paying for, and gives insight into whether a stock is priced with a margin of safety.

KEHDF now has a forward yield of around 5.1%. We remain optimistic on the dividend growth prospects for 2018.

KCM Vision

Kempen Capital Management is an asset manager with a long-term investment approach. We strongly believe in engaged shareholdership that benefits all stakeholders. As a long-term responsible investor, we firmly believe that active ownership and shareholder engagement contribute to positive change across the board.

Our KCM wide approach to responsible investment

To put our vision into action we engage with our investment targets on a wide array of strategic, financial, environmental, social and governance (ESG) topics. Our long-term investment worldview paired with thorough analysis and an experienced and diverse ESG team allow us to use both voting and engagement as means to consistently encourage positive change. Through this process of constructive engagement, we are able to contribute to the development of principles and standards of corporate responsibility within companies that we invest in. Our full voting records are available here.

Our fund approach to Responsible Investment

  • ESG is integrated in our investment process.
  • Portfolio managers (PM's) have access to ESG research via the database from MSCI ESG Research and via FactSet.
  • Prior to investment, our PM's assess the ESG performance of the company. If material ESG concerns are identified, this can result in the decision to quantify the ESG risks into the investment model, to engage with a company or to avoid investment.
  • In case of engagement, the PM and the Responsible Investment Department will start a dialogue with the company. The aim of the engagement is to use our influence as a shareholder to encourage positive change.
  • During the quarterly re-balancing process the PM's monitor the ESG performance of the holdings.
