Investing has been our core business for more than 80 years. Robeco has grown through many, varied cycles to become a prominent specialized asset manager. Our global presence is complemented by local specialized investment centres and service teams in Europe, the United States, the Middle East and Asia.
Dedicated asset management
Asset management is, and always has been, our core business. As an active investment manager, we use a disciplined approach and operate within a solid risk management framework. Robeco is committed to innovation, building on our heritage as a pioneer in fund investing within The Netherlands to launch new strategies and products.
To innovate the way we invest, Robeco strongly beliefs that a scientific, research-driven approach is required. Therefore we have established important ties to the academic world, for instance by stimulating our investment professionals to be part-time faculty members as well. An example of innovation through academic research concerns our various quantitative strategies, such as low volatility investing.
Different angle, different approach
Independent thinking has been central to Robeco’s success over the past 80 years. As The Investment Engineers, we believe in looking at things from a different angle. We translate our vision of future global and economic trends into relevant insights and better solutions for our clients.
We are pleased to note that our clients recognize us for providing top service levels (Greenwich Associates research, 2006-2011).
