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. However, for the calculation of the performance of 30 November 2021 the originally issued NAV of 1 December 2021 was used as the deviating NAV could not be calculated due to technical circumstances. Also for the calculation of the performance of 31 December 2021 the originally issued NAV of 3 January 2022 was used as the deviating NAV could not be calculated due to technical circumstances. Performance is shown after deduction of ongoing charges. The value of your investments may fluctuate. Past performance provides no guarantee for the future.

Developments per 2022-10-31

October was a strong month for equities. Investor sentiment was driven by the hope that central banks would start slowing down the pace of interest rate increases. This hope was based on encouraging inflation data in the United States. Commodity prices had come off over the last few months. In the second half of October, earnings reporting season started. In this period, companies publish their financial statements, and management teams give an outlook on what their expectations are in the upcoming months. So far, earnings have not disappointed investors and the business outlook was frequently somewhat better than expected. In this bullish environment, the Fund outperformed the broader market. The performance was also better than the performance of the MSCI World Value Index.

Energy was the sector that contributed most to the absolute performance of the Fund. Energy prices have moved up over the last months, which is partially explained by the lack of new supply. In response to higher energy prices, more and more energy companies are ramping up their investment spending. Companies like Valaris (+36% in October) and Weatherford (+28%) are benefiting from this renewed search for energy supplies.

Another strong contributor to the performance of the Fund was Sysco (+22% in October). The US based company is the world’s largest foodservice distributor and caters food and related non-food items to for example restaurants, schools and hospitals. The company is recovering from the Covid-crisis as a better company. It has been outgrowing the competition and we believe that they will continue to do so. It is on track to achieve its 2024 operating profit objectives. Sysco has been able to grow its earnings and dividends steadily over time. The current dividend yield of Sysco is around 2.4%.

No sectors detracted from the performance of the Fund. There were a couple of Asian companies that showed moderate losses. One example is Singapore Telecom (-5%). One of SingTel’s subsidiaries is Australian telco Optus. Through a cyber-attack, data of almost 10 million people was stolen from Optus. There are concerns that this could have a negative impact on the customer base of the company. After an initial negative share price reaction, the shares had moved back up again in the last few days of October.

Portfolio activity over October was limited. We did not initiate new positions, nor fully exited existing positions.

The valuation dispersion between, and within regions and sectors remains at a very high level. We are still able to find companies that are cash generative, have market leading positions and embrace and benefit from digitalization and ESG trends. These companies are definitely not priced for that and are in our view a very interesting investments both in relative and absolute terms. 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 Value 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 applies 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. The Fund applies additional exclusion criteria based on product involvement and business conduct.
