Market developments per 2018-04-30

In Europe, markets recovered with KEHDF ahead of the market. KEHDF remains ahead of its benchmark for the year. Sector allocation was strong for the month, whereas stock selection was neutral. Our quarterly rebalance also supported our returns as stocks that lagged during the first quarter performed well in April.

The energy sector was by far the strongest performer for the month. Years of weak oil prices have reduced the amount of capital flowing into the sector. This is now resulting in less supply entering the market, while demand for oil is still growing. The expected growth in electric vehicles is also making oil companies more hesitant to invest. In commodities, supply is often a better predictor of prices than demand. With lower oil inventories, the price of oil may remain strong. Another sector which we benefited from on a relative basis was our underweight to the consumer staples sector. Consumer staples underperformed as organic growth disappointed, especially in developed markets. We have low exposure to this sector as we believe valuations are too high given the business fundamentals.

Portfolio developments per 2018-04-30

Two of our top three contributors for the month were in the oil sector, namely Royal Dutch Shell and TGS Nopec. Royal Dutch Shell benefited from rising oil prices and improving free cash flow generation. TGS Nopec, an oil services company, performed well on the back of an improved outlook. The recovery in oil prices is driving increased demand for their main product, seismic data. Seismic data is used by oil companies to locate oil and determine where companies have to drill. H&M, one of our weakest performers year-to-date, rebounded on insider buying by its controlling shareholder. Our weakest performer was Renault, as revenues were lower than expected by the market and there was decreased hope of a merger with Nissan.

After a period of muted markets, we welcome increased volatility as this improves our opportunity to pick individual stocks. The recent decline in equity markets should however be weighed against the strong equity returns in 2017. We believe European markets are attractively valued, especially when compared to North America.

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 4.9%. Our portfolio trades at a significant discount to market multiples. 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 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.
