Within KBC -
The first steps in the field of asset management were set in 1948 by a department within Kredietbank.  The KBC Group was created in April 1998 after the merger of 3 large Belgian financial groups: Kredietbank and its subsidiaries, Cera Bank, and ABB insurance company. In June 2000 KBC Asset Management, was established as a separate company in accordance with the directives of the Belgian Banking Commission. This position alongside the banking and insurance activities of the group not only shows the independence of the asset management company, but also the strategic importance the group attaches to these activities. KBC Asset Management is a 55% daughter company of the KBC Holding. The other 45% is held by KBC Bank.

This core American fund is invested closely in line with the S&P500 Index at industry group level, but we select only from those companies that buy back and cancel their shares in issue, therefore creating value for the shareholders. Academic research suggests that this group of stocks should outperform the broad market over a period of 4 years. At the same time, the managers screen stocks on the basis of price to book value and select from the lowest two quintiles within each industry group. We believe that low-price-to-book stocks are re-purchased because they are undervalued. Glamour (high price to book) stocks tend to be re-purchased for other reasons, like EPS dilution or more financial leverage. This gives the portfolio some value tilt although the industry group neutral policy tends to mitigate the style bias. KBC Asset Management N.V.

KBC Equity Fund New Shares is a sub-fund of the Belgian Bevek, KBC Equity Fund. The fund invests globally in IPOs and recently IPOed companies. The aim is to invest in companies with a high potential from their first day on the stock markets. Traditionally, IPOs are underpriced because they are set at a discount to fair value in order to make the deal work. The fund invests in all regions and MSCI Industry Groups, but because it relies on new offerings in the market, sector and region neutrality is virtually impossible. On average, the fund holds its positions for 3 years and has a small/mid cap and growth bias, due to the nature of the theme.

KBC Equity Fund High Dividend is a sub-fund of the Belgian Bevek, KBC Equity Fund. This equity fund was born out of the awareness that dividends have historically contributed to the majority of investment returns and that the high dividend stocks are typically less volatile. We avoid the classic style exposure by aiming for regional neutrality. We look for shares with higher-than-average dividend yields. When making our stock selection, we check for anomalies between yield and payout and also for dividend sustainability. We look for companies that generate a high sustainable level of cash and then pay a significant part of it to their shareholders in the form of dividends. Furthermore, we use a pure quantitative expected return set. The fund’s benchmark is the MSCI World net return index and its tracking error is 2 to 5% against this benchmark. The fund aims to maximise the information ratio.
