Research from the very beginning

As Investment Engineers, Robeco wants to know all it can about the world and its workings: how and why things happen, the risks and opportunities. That is because this knowledge creates the vision to identify long-term potential to innovate and to pragmatically deliver investment success. It means combining a pioneering spirit with caution, with research as a bedrock.

Our philosophy


In 1929, a group of prominent Rotterdam businessmen were discussing the aftermath of the Wall Street Crash. They decided to pool their interests to make it easier, and less personally risky, to invest in stock and bond markets. They established the Rotterdamsch Beleggings Consortium, offering a means of collective investing.

As an asset manager with a global presence we pride ourselves on being able to serve a broad range of clients.
