Market developments per 2017-10-31

In October, global equity markets continued their strong run, with the Fund lagging the benchmark. On a year-to-date basis the Fund is well ahead of the MSCI World Index.

Both stock selection as well as sector allocation negatively impacted stock performance for the month. The strong performance of the technology sector was the main reason for lagging the benchmark. Alphabet, Microsoft and Amazon all reported strong sales results in October. These companies continue to grow rapidly, which is impressive given their sales base. We have no exposure to these companies given either their lack of dividends or low dividend yields. In terms of stock specific contributors, our worst performer was also in the tech sector: Nokia. Nokia dropped on disappointing quarterly earnings. Nokia is a producer of networking equipment, and is suffering from low capital expenditure levels by telecom operators as well as high integration costs with Alcatel. Our largest contributor for the month was Triton international, a container leasing company. Triton continues to benefit from an improving container market.

Portfolio developments per 2017-10-31

In October we completed our quarterly rebalance. We divested seven companies and purchased six new stakes.

Three companies were sold due to the dividend yields falling below the threshold (Yara, Uniper and Qualicorp). Pearson was sold due to a significant dividend cut. Camden and Philip Morris International were sold as strong performance reduced the forward returns. Finally Great-West life Corporation was sold in return for a more attractive alternative.

In terms of purchases, we bought the following companies:

WPP: World’s largest advertising agency trading at a very attractive free cash flow multiple. We believe the current decline in advertisement spend will prove to be cyclical rather than structural.
Power Financial Corporation: Holding company that trades at a historically wide discount. Approximately 65% stake in Great West Lifeco and IGM financial, smaller stake in Pargesa.
MS&AD Insurance Group: Top 3 player in the very consolidated Japanese non-life market producing attractive returns. MS&AD is very well capitalised, distributing more of this to shareholders.
Dixons Carphone plc: Attractively valued consumer electronics retailer with high market share in its core markets.
Phosagro: Lowest cost producer of phosphates globally, continues to be highly profitable despite depressed industry conditions. Given low prices, supply is likely to tighten.
Lite-on Technology: Very attractively valued producer of technological components that has established a competitive advantage in efficient mass production.

Market volatility still remains subdued, with few large moves in the indices. The benign environment attracts investors as it seemingly offers returns without the volatility that usually accompanies public markets. It is often in these markets that mistakes are made. Investors start to move up the risk curve without realizing it and are often faced with overvalued and/or illiquid assets once the cycle turns. We operate in the same capital markets as everyone else, and are similarly faced with elevated multiples. We do believe that safe investments with sufficient expected returns continue to exist, they present themselves in areas where the perception of risk is high. Currently this is the case in cyclical firms, or in commodity based operators. Within this space we look for companies with a sustainable low cost position and strong balance sheets to reduce the long term risk.

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.

The Fund now has a forward yield of around 4.7%. We remain optimistic on the dividend growth prospects for 2017.

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.

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.
