As of 30 June 2018 a deviating Net Asset Value (NAV) is used for the calculation of the performance figures. This NAV is calculated based on closing prices of the Fund investments thereby deviating from the NAV which was originally issued and partly calculated based on snapshots (Asia & Pacific investments). The deviating NAV is used to make a better comparison with the benchmark, which is also solely based on closing prices of the investments.

Developments per 2022-04-30

April was a positive month for the Fund in an absolute sense. The performance was in line with the performance of our investment universe (Morningstar Developed Markets DY > 3%) and the Fund was substantially ahead of the broader market index. Besides strong stock selection, the relative performance versus the broader market index was mainly driven by avoiding technology stocks as the tech-heavy NASDAQ index declined by 13% in USD. The sector that contributed most to the absolute performance was the consumer staples sector (Danone performed well). The financials sector detracted from our absolute performance (Blackrock did poorly). The sector that added most to the relative performance was the IT sector (avoiding the tech sell off). Stock selection within healthcare was strong (GlaxoSmithKline and Merck did well). The sector that detracted most from the relative performance was the real estate sector, although the effect was negligible.

One of the best contributors was Repsol (+20% in April). This integrated energy company reported strong first quarter results. Production is increasing and refining utilization rates are moving up. These developments lead to higher than expected free cash flows. The company positively surprised investors by announcing additional share buy backs. Consensus earnings estimates for 2022 and 2023 have been rising for several months now . Despite the 67% strong run-up of the shares since the summer of 2021, the shares still only trade at 6 times 2023 earnings.

One of the detractors from performance was Blackrock, declining 20%. The American asset management company reported quarterly earnings. Although earnings were in line with expectations, investors are worried that the recent weakness in capital markets will lead to lower fee income. We believe that Blackrock is able to adjust their cost base to potentially negative fee income developments. Also, assets continue to grow, driven by passive products. The shares currently trade at a price/earnings ratio of 14 times 2023 consensus earnings. For a cash generative business with long term growth prospects, this is too low. The dividend yield of around 3% remains attractive.

In April we have added 2 new positions to the portfolio. The first new position is Telefonica. Telefonica is active in fixed and wireless telecommunication across Europe (Spain, Germany and UK) and Latin America. They currently are market leader in their home market Spain, which is also their largest market (~30% of revenue). The Spanish market is seeing consolidation in the market, which we believe this will lead to a more stable pricing environment. Brazil is also a consolidating market, which should eventually lead to improving profits. Telefonica has lowered its debt levels by selling infrastructure and non-core assets. These developments are not yet fully reflected in the share price. The current dividend yield of around 7% is attractive. The second addition to the portfolio is Chesapeake Energy. This US shale gas producer is benefiting from very high natural gas prices. The high natural gas prices result in substantial free cash flow generation, which are not reflected in the share price. We have carefully evaluated Chesapeake’s ESG profile. The company has various policies that are clearly better than industry standards. E.g., it uses 3 walls of casings around the wellbore, it provides details about greenhouse gas emissions, and management compensation is dependent on achieving environmental and safety standards. Natural gas can be seen as a transition fuel in the move towards renewable energy. We actively engage with management to further improve the ESG profile of the company.

To finance our new positions we have sold our positions in SK Square and Redwood Trust. SK Square is a spin off from our holding in SK Telecom. The position was therefore relatively small. After analyzing the SK Square business in more detail, we concluded that a larger position was not warranted. We have sold our shares in Redwood Trust, which is an American specialty finance company focused on several areas of housing credit. We have sold Redwood Trust for two reasons. We expect that higher interest rates will put pressure on mortgage refinancing volumes. Additionally, margin pressure is expected as the result of intensifying competitive pressures.

We currently expect a dividend yield of around 4.5% for the Fund. This number is based on the consensus estimate of dividends paid out over the next 12 months. Based on those estimates the annual growth in dividends for the Fund will be approximately 6%. The Fund still trades at a strong discount versus the market (the average valuation of all the holdings in the Fund versus the broader equity market). Historically, this has led to a strong relative performance in the medium term. Also, the absolute valuation of the strategy is compelling. We continue to focus on attractively valued companies, that have good capital discipline and generate positive cash flow through the cycle. In summary, the current environment offers the opportunity to buy a well-diversified portfolio with solid earnings power at an attractive valuation. In addition, ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) is fully incorporated in our investment process.

Environmental and/or social characteristics promoted

The Kempen Global High Dividend Fund (the “Fund”) falls under the scope of article 8 of the SFDR which means that the fund promotes environmental and/or social characteristics. This fund will invest in a broad range of companies, of which some will have sustainability objectives.

We commit to the goals of the Paris Agreement. This encompasses short-term objectives (2025), a mid-term ambition (2030) and a long-term commitment to be a net zero investor by 2050. By 2025, we aim to be aligned with a path to achieving the Paris Agreement and Dutch Klimaatakkoord. We follow the market reduction, which assumes a pathway in line with the EU Benchmarks.

ESG Investment process

The promotion of environmental and/or social characteristics is achieved through the consistent implementation of the funds ESG policy. The ESG policy is fully implemented in our strategy’s investment process across the three relevant pillars of: Exclusion, ESG integration and Active ownership.

In the investment process we assess the ESG profile of a company. We look at each company on a case-by-case basis, taking into account material risks in a given industry in combination with the company’s respective risk exposure, practices and disclosure. This includes an assessment of good governance practices. The investee companies are rated for governance aspects using external research as well as making internal assessments. Furthermore, we look into the company’s exposure to past controversies and future ESG opportunities. Based on the fundamental ESG analysis we form an opinion on the quality of a company’s ESG profile.

Exclusion

The Fund excludes companies through the application of strict exclusion criteria. These take into account international standards, such as UN Global Compact Framework, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, and our Principles for Responsible Investment commitments. We have summarized how we integrated the principle adverse indicators in our ESG policy and process in the ESG Policy & Process document that can be found on our website.
