14 BeleggingsfilosofieStrategieën om van lokale markt tendensen te profiterenMarkt tendensenRobeco Emerging Markets strategieLocale belegger focus op eigen landActieve landen allocatieGeruchten cultuur en kudde gedragGedisciplineerde fundamentele analyseSterke korte termijn gerichtheidConsistente focus op lange termijn“Behavioral biases”Gebruik van kwantitatieve modellenEmerging markets are in a constant state of flux, reflecting actions by a variety of participants with different objectives and constraints. This frequently produces inefficiencies in the evaluation of risk and reward. The Emerging Markets team seeks to identify and exploit these inefficiencies by embarking on different investment strategies that use both qualitative and quantitative research techniques. Our investment philosophy for emerging markets equities can be explained as follows:In emerging markets, local investors tend to focus only on their home country. This means that differences in local sentiment can be captured by using active country allocation strategies.Other inefficiencies related to emerging markets investing include the deviation from fundamentals. Countries, asset classes and companies can all fall in and out of favour depending on anything from economic trends to investors' appetite for risk. With disciplined and consistent fundamental analysis, the Emerging Markets team works around these biases.Most investors in emerging markets have a short-term focus, fed by headlines in the local press. By using a long-term investment view, we avoid this local short-term noise inherent to emerging markets.Robeco makes active use of quantitative models in its Emerging Markets strategy. As these models are less commonly used in emerging markets, there is potential upside from quantitative models that exploit behavioral biases of investors.Profiteer van de locale markt sentimenten in emerging marketsdoor eengedisciplineerd en op lange termijn gericht beleggingsproces!
15 COUNTRY AND CURRENCY ALLOCATION BeleggingsprocesEen beleggingsproces in 2 stappen:PORTFOLIOSTOCK SELECTIONCOUNTRY AND CURRENCY ALLOCATIONSTEP 1STEP 2- Fundamentele analyse- Kwantitatieve analyse- Thema’s uit de top-down analyse- Fundamenteel raamwerk- Kwantitatieve rangschikkingThe first step in the investment process is to select countries with a strong economic and political outlook. Currency allocation decisions are part of this process to control the high volatility inherent to emerging markets currencies.As a second step, the team members identify stocks within the targeted countries with high return potential. During the stock selection process, they apply insights gained from their top-down country analysis. Both fundamental and quantitative techniques are used to examine country and stock attractiveness, while fundamental and technical analyses are used to assess currency positioning.Result of our approach: Better emerging markets investment decisions. It enables us to reduce economic and political risk inherent in emerging markets AND it improves our stock selection capabilities.Our belief is illustrated by the fact that during ten out of the past eleven years, the country allocation decisions have added value to the portfolio.

By investing only in those countries least likely to be influenced by emerging markets turmoil, positive country allocation can neutralize the negative stock selection attribution.For example, in 1999 the team’s country analysis already indicated that investments in Argentina were unattractive. The decision not to invest in Argentinean stocks obviously turned out to be a wise one.Next to country allocation and stock selection, currency positioning had significant contributions as well.For example in 1997, the emerging markets team anticipated the fall of the Thai baht and sold the currency short through forward contracts when the baht started its devaluation on July 1st, This currency hedge proved to be very successful.Asian crisisRussian crisisArgentina crisis2006 YTD: until January 31, 2006Cumulative excess return attribution: UPDATE NUMBERS EVERY QUARTERCountry allocation: %Stock selection: %Currency positioning: 3.81%Note on differences in returns on sheet 20 and 21.
