Before 1 October 2014 the Fund had a different name and investment policy: Kempen (Lux) European Property Fund. The Fund also had a different ISIN code. As a result the performance before 1 October 2014 is not representative and will therefore not be shown. Performance is shown after deduction of ongoing charges. The value of your investments may fluctuate. Past performance provides no guarantee for the future. 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.

Market developments per 2018-08-31

Global property stocks were up in August with the Fund outperforming slightly its benchmark. A notable outlier is our overweight position Simon Property Group in the United States thanks to recovering retail sales. SPG’s portfolio quality increasingly differentiates itself from its peers and allows them to show strong LFL NOI growth figures. The discount to Asset Value that the equity market was implying has now almost disappeared. The Fund underperformed slightly in the European residential cluster where, despite strong returns in absolute terms, Deutsche Wohnen lagged its peers by some 220bps over the month.

The Global investment market for logistics property remains red hot and yields continue to compress (c50bps – last 6 months). Australian Goodman Group posted strong valuation uplifts during its 1H results in August and SEGRO in Europe and ProLogis in the US likewise. The Fund has a position in ProLogis although we believe <5% yields that we observe in some markets for volatile logistic assets are very low.

Retail sales and rents are recovering in the US as we wrote last month and continues to be visible through strong share price recoveries of mall and strip center REIT’s. However, Europe and Australia are lagging and start to feel the pain of disappointing (flat) physical retail sales and polarization in shopping center yields. Eurocommercial Properties in Europe and Stockland in Australia saw their share prices being hit after releasing 1H results including disappointing performance of secondary retail assets. Several European and Australian listed and unlisted property companies still need to offload large amounts of non-core/secondary assets which will put further pressure on retail values.

The Tokyo office market continues to improve as we noticed in Japan results season. Our holdings Kennedix Office and Tokyu Fudosan benefit, the latter mostly focused on the Shibuya business district. In the wider Asia Pacific markets companies with exposure to China were obviously under pressure as a result of the US-China trade war. The Fund continues to hold <1% exposure in China and from a relative perspective our cluster neutrality means the impact of such political-macro events on returns are very limited.

Portfolio developments per 2018-08-31

Portfolio construction of the Fund is based on cluster neutrality. The Global portfolio has 19 clusters defined as homogeneous groups of real estate companies with similar underlying currency exposure. Examples are Australia, US offices and Switzerland. The portfolio weight of each cluster is approximately equal to the cluster’s benchmark weight. This ensures a diversified portfolio and neutralizes currency and macro-economic exposure versus the benchmark. The Fund assigns its risk budget on the real estate company level and is positioned towards companies with strong balance sheets and management teams with proven track records in NAV creation, and avoids property developers without stable income from an investment portfolio.

In the cluster Australia, we continued to trade out of GPT Group and in favor of Dexus bringing the position to the maximum overweight of 2.5%. In the cluster US offices we finished selling the entire stake in Boston Properties and moved it to Hudson Pacific Properties. In the US healthcare cluster, the Fund sold its position in Healthcare Realty, and reinvested the proceed in Alexandria. Lastly in the J-REITs space, we started selling Kennedix Office following its outperformance, and increased the overweight in Nippon Prologis.

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 fully integrated in our investment process for the real estate funds. We believe financial and sustainability returns are indivisible and that those companies that can find the right balance between all stakeholders will drive value. In our investment framework there are three key aspects we look at in determining the warranted valuation: management value add, balance sheet and ESG. We are willing to pay up for those companies that excel in ESG. This believe is underpinned by academic literature.

We track the CO2 intensity for all companies in our universe and use this information to for our assumption for capital expenditure in valuing the real estate portfolio. We do not only invest in the ESG leaders but also in the laggards as we the potential value to be unlocked by providing capital to those who need it the most is massive
