Robeco is an international asset manager offering an extensive range of active investments, from equities to bonds. Research lies at the heart of everything we do, with a ‘pioneering but cautious’ approach that has been in our DNA since our foundation in Rotterdam in 1929. We believe strongly in sustainability investing, quantitative techniques and constant innovation.
Research from the very beginning
As Investment Engineers, we have placed the acquisition of knowledge at our core ever since our first director said “every investment strategy should be research-driven”. Through the unique integration of three types of research - Fundamental, Sustainable and Quantitative - we can offer ground-breaking investment strategies to our clients.
We integrate environmental, social and governance criteria into the majority of our investment processes, for fundamental and quantitative strategies over a range of asset classes. We’re convinced that this approach leads to better-informed investment decisions and is therefore vital in creating value for our clients.
A leader in sustainability integration
Back in the 1990s, we were one of the first asset managers to see the potential of sustainability as a way of enhancing investment returns for our clients. With this principal aim in mind, we integrate environmental, social and governance ( ESG) information gained from leading sustainability research into our investment processes, and actively engage with the companies in our portfolios.
