Performance is shown after deduction of ongoing charges. 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.

Market developments per 2018-05-31

In a rising Global real estate market the Fund underperformed its benchmark. Stock selection in the US attributed negatively. Holdings like Equinix (-2.5%), Simon Property Group (+5%), and Empire State Realty Trust (0%) weren’t able to keep up with the rising market. In the UK portfolio holding Land Securities (-6%) underperformed the market after reporting valuation pressure on its UK retail portfolio.

May continued to show gains for global real estate market. After a difficult first couple of months in the year, year-to-date returns are now back into positive territory (+3% for the Fund). Clusters that are often disliked by many investors particularly are doing well so far this year. Japan (+13%) and US hotels (+14%) register double-digit returns. Our cluster neutral approach helps us catching these returns. Obviously, it also exposes us to less performing clusters like retail (US retail returned -6% so far this year). Next to generating returns the cluster neutral approach also significantly reduces risk of our investment strategy. Our risk-adjusted returns measured as information ratio hence outpaces most of our competitors since inception.

Portfolio developments per 2018-05-31

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 Hong Kong we increased the position in Hysan at the expanse of Link REIT. In US offices we increased the weight in Boston Properties by selling down Hudson Pacific. And in US residential weight in Equity Residential was reduced and reinvested into Essex. And finally in US healthcare the position in HCP was reduced and moved to Healthcare Realty. All changes were valuation driven as no changes were made to underlying investment cases.

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 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
