Performance is shown after deduction of ongoing charges and including the reinvestment of dividend that has been paid out. The performance figures shown in the graph are rebased. The value of your investments may fluctuate. Past performance provides no guarantee for the future. For the calculation of the performance figures a deviant net asset value (NAV) is used. The NAV is calculated based on the closing prices of the Fund investments per 29 March 2018, in contrast of the original NAV issued, that partly is calculated based on the closing prices of 2 April 2018 (North America) and calculated based on ‘snapshots’ prices of 3 April 2018 (Asian and Pacific investments). The deviating NAV is used for better comparison with the benchmark that is also calculated based on the closing prices of the investments. The dividend distribution of KGHDF (ex-date 01 August 2018) is included in the NAV per 31 July 2018 and is therefore included in the performance figures of July.

Market developments per 2019-03-31

During March, shares globally continued their upward path. Year-to-date global equities have now gained more than what one would normally expect in an average year. The Fund lagged the strong equity market, which is not uncommon for a more defensive value oriented strategy.

The market was still in a positive mood because of the same reasons mentioned during previous months. In particular the announcement by the Fed (about a slower path of potential interest rate hikes) still helped the market. Bond yields even fell further in March that pushed shares further up.

Like in February, also this month information technology was the strongest sector. Year-to-date, it is also by far the best performing sector and the major reason the Fund lagged the market (see below). Also consumer staples performed well, while the only sector showing a negative performance were financials (as banks were weak in March).

As mentioned, the Fund lagged the strong market, as both sector allocation and stock selection detracted from the performance. In particular selection within the sectors consumer discretionary, industrials and communication services was negative this month. Sector allocation was negative as we were underweight the best performing sectors information technology and consumer staples. Both sectors are quite expensive and do not offer a lot of attractively high dividend yielding stocks. We are overweight financials that was the weakest sector. In addition, the US market performed better than the European market, and the Fund is overweight Europe and underweight the US (all a result of our bottom up process with strong focus on attractive valuations). Stock selection within materials was strong as Fortescue Metals rose sharply as it benefited from the continued strong iron ore price.

Portfolio developments per 2019-03-31

In March we implemented the quarterly rebalance. We sold five positions completely, while we added four new names to the portfolio. Boskalis was sold after it lowered its dividend (although they also introduced a share buy-back). However, the 2019 outlook was disappointing. Also, Bezeq announced a dividend cut, related to Israelian legislation that subscribes companies to cut the dividend when they made a loss over the last eight quarters, also when this is related to non-cash impairments. Centrica was sold after it disappointed again with falling customer numbers and an increased risk for future dividends. Nordea Bank was sold as we saw better alternatives in some new investment ideas. Green King was sold after the strong share price performance. We added US oil-services company Schlumberger, a market leader in many areas with an attractive valuation. Also Keycorp was added, a well-managed US bank. Seaspan Corp also entered the portfolio, it operates a fleet of containerships and is attractively valued. Lastly, we added Venture Corp, the Singapore based company manufacturers and designs electronic products for many well-known companies ranging from healthcare to the consumer goods sector.

We believe overall global stock market valuations are elevated, although Emerging and European markets still offer some pockets of attractively valued opportunities. The North American market is quite expensive. A company may appear attractive based on its price to earnings ratio or other headline multiples, but if margins and/or revenues are high, this only gives you limited information about the future returns of an investment. In our investment process we spent a large portion of our time understanding where profitability should be on an over the cycle basis, as this is what determines the cash flows we will receive as a long term shareholder.

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. In addition, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) is fully incorporated in our investment process.
The Fund now has a forward yield of around 5.2%.

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.
