Market developments per 2019-10-31

During the month of October, the Fund (I-class) was up 1.6% outperforming the MSCI World Small-cap index, which was up 0.4%. Last month we again recovered some of our underperformance year-to-date. Year-to-date, the Fund showed a 17.0% performance versus the MSCI World Small-cap Value index of 18.2%, and the MSCI World Small-cap index of 21.1%. The current earnings season so far is developing favourably. Some companies in sectors that underperformed, such as industrials, reported weaker earnings. However, share prices are reacting positively on earnings releases as much of the anticipated weaker earnings have been priced-in.

Three top contributing stocks during the month of October were Bed Bath & Beyond (+26%), West Fraser (+13%) and Fujitec (+12%). Bed Bath & Beyond's stock price rose 26% in the month of October which made it the highest contributing stock. The main news item was the announcement of the appointment of Mark Tritton as CEO. The stock has recovered nicely from the summer lows, but we still believe the current valuation is significantly below intrinsic value. West Fraser (+13%) reported weak quarterly results, but this was also anticipated by the financial market. The lumber market has been tough this year, but weak lumber market conditions are more than priced in at current share price levels, we believe. WFT is the largest and lowest-cost lumber producer in North America, has a solid balance sheet and is trading well below intrinsic valuation. Fujitec (+12%) the Japanese elevator and escalator company, pre-announced quarterly results that substantially exceeded expectations. Fujitec indicated that the business in China is the main reason for this higher profit level. Growth in new installations in China, in combination with the company’s reorganization efforts over the last 1.5 year, is driving better profitability.

Negative contributors in October were Argo Group (-14%), First Solar (-13%), and American Eagle Outfitters (-6%). Argo Group, a US insurance company, declined 14% in October as it pre-announced cat losses for recent hurricanes and typhoons. The company also reported losses in businesses that it previously exited but are still part of the insurance book. While the update was somewhat disappointing, we believe Argo should be able to create a double digit return on equity with the current book of business. First Solar reported Q3 results that came in below analyst expectations as some revenues have shifted from Q3 to Q4. The company, therefore, reiterated its FY 2019 guidance. First Solar is sold out for the coming two years at attractive margins providing strong visibility on earnings for FY 2020 and FY 2021. American Eagle Outfitters’ (AEO) stock declined 6% in October partly due to a broker downgrade that cited increased promotional activity. We share the view that there could be near term earnings risk, also in the fourth quarter, due to a very short holiday shopping season in the US. However, we believe the valuation of AEO is too attractive to ignore.

Portfolio developments per 2019-10-31

The Fund invests world-wide in smaller companies (small-caps). One attractive feature of small-caps is that they are generally monitored by a small number of analysts, which leaves plenty of opportunity to add value as active investors. When looking for new investment opportunities, screening is applied to reduce the investment universe to a manageable size of 500 companies. We screen for companies that are of above-average quality and that are attractively valued. Extensive fundamental analysis is done on both existing portfolio companies and new portfolio candidates. This includes analysis of the company’s public filings (like annual reports) and comprehensive dialogues with the management teams of companies that we invest in. For each stock we base our investment decision on an extensive investment case, which is supported by a proprietary financial model. ESG topics (Environmental, Social and Governance) are fully integrated in our investment process. The result is a well-diversified portfolio of 60-90 companies spread across sectors and regions. Many portfolio companies have leading positions in the niche markets in which they operate. The companies in the portfolio typically have robust balance sheets and high returns on capital employed, which indicates that these companies are structurally capable of increasing shareholder value via their operations. The portfolio has a more attractive price earnings ratio versus the benchmark.

Kempen's vision & mission

Kempen Capital Management is an asset manager that believes in stewardship and investment focusing on the long-term for the benefit of all stakeholders. Value creation is at the heart of the services we provide to our clients. We believe that being an engaged shareholder on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and retaining a long-term focus, is critical to helping our clients to preserve and create sustainable wealth that has positive real world impact and economic returns.

Kempen wide approach to responsible investment

We are committed to create sustainable alpha. The four pillars of our ESG-policy are:

  • ESG integration: Ensuring sustainability risks and opportunities are adequately considered in our investment analysis and processes.

  • Exclusion & avoidance: Not investing in companies involved in controversial activities or conduct.

  • Active ownership: Being responsible stewards of our clients’ capital and using our influence through engagement and voting to improve corporate behaviour on specific ESG issues and achieve positive change

  • Positive impact: Investing with an objective to achieve positive real world outcomes and impact, such as contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Â

To put our mission and vision into practice we engage with our investee companies on a wide array of strategic, financial, and ESG topics. As an active owner we use our influence to improve our investee companies’ ESG performance. This helps us address some of the most pressing and important sustainability issues facing business and the world. Our focus themes for engagement are: human rights, labour rights, climate change and governance.

Â

Through collaboration with other investors and industry think tanks we contribute to the development of principles and standards of corporate responsibility both at sector levels, as well as investee company level.

Â

Our full voting records are available here

Â

OUR FUND APPROACH TO RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT

The investment objective of Kempen (Lux) Global Small-cap Fund is to offer investors the opportunity to invest in an actively and professionally managed portfolio of smaller listed companies worldwide, while at the same time complying with strict exclusion and sustainability criteria.

Â

We strive to invest in a portfolio of companies that has a carbon intensity well below the benchmark. Furthermore, we engage with the most carbon intense companies in our portfolio in order to improve disclosure and policies that should contribute to a reduction in carbon intensity.

Â

Kempen’s ESG policy is implemented in our fund’s investment process by the following pillars: Exclusion, Integration and Active ownership.

Â

Exclusion & Avoidance

In line with the general Kempen policy, the Global Small-cap Fund excludes all companies on the KCM Exclusion- or Avoidance list.

Â

Companies that ‘Fail’ or are on ‘Watchlist’ marked against the criteria of the United Nations Global Compact are excluded.

Â

We determine a company’s ESG score (1-5) and exclude companies with a score of 1. Companies with a score of 2 are excluded on a comply or explain basis.

Â

Â

More information on our exclusion criteria and thresholds can be found here.

Â

The Global Small-cap Fund also excludes companies based on additional sustainability criteria as listed in the table below.

ESG integrationÂ

In the investment process we assess the ESG profile of a company. We assess 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.

Â

A lower score (1-5) requires a higher return as used in our Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) models. If ESG risks are deemed too severe, an investment in the company will be avoided and/or existing holdings will be sold.

Â

On a quarterly basis, the Kempen Responsible Investment team screens the holdings of the Kempen Global Small-cap Fund and discusses the findings with the portfolio managers.

Â

Active ownership: Engagement

As active investors we perform comprehensive engagements with our portfolio companies with the objective to unlock value and reduce risk.Â

Our engagement process defines clear objectives of which the progress and result is tracked and well documented. If at any stage the company refuses to cooperate, divestment has to be considered.

In the first half of 2019, we engaged with 20 companies on strategic, environmental, social and governance issues.

You can find the engagement factsheet of A&F here

You can find the factsheet of Kaiser Aluminium here

You can find the engagement factsheet of Western Forest here

Â

Active ownership: Voting

Exercising our voting rights is also an essential part of our responsible investment philosophy. ISS provides us with voting recommendations based on our own voting and governance policy. Items are further analyzed on a case by case basis.

Â

Often, we inform the company about our voting intention ahead of the meeting and, where there is a recommendation to vote against management, we ask the company to clarify their viewpoints. After careful analysis, we form our own opinion and vote accordingly.
