Rotterdam, The Netherlands 23 November 2012 – Robeco has set its sights on Latin America with the opening of an office in Miami that will exclusively serve this region.
This is the company’s first effort to significantly expand its business in Latin America by opening an office in Miami and relocating a top executive, Javier García de Vinuesa, to oversee these efforts.
“The demand from Latin American investors for high quality and innovative investment products is growing rapidly”, said Mr. García de Vinuesa, Managing Director of Robeco Miami.
“Pension assets in the region are projected to more than triple from US$ 780 billion currently to $3 trillion by 2020. Mutual fund assets in the region are also anticipated to double by 2020 to between US$2.8 and US$3.6 trillion. Robeco has long established expertise in investing in emerging markets, including emerging Asia and emerging markets debt; sustainable investing; global equities; and minimum variance portfolios, to name just a few of the strategies we feel will appeal to investors in Latin America, ” he added.
Initial target markets in Latin America are Panama, Colombia and Mexico, with Brazil and Argentina also slated for future business development.
Javier García de Vinuesa has run Robeco’s business in Spain and Latin American since 2003 when he joined Robeco. He previously held positions at Sales and Products in Spain in Banco Santander, Merrill Lynch, and Société Générale. In addition to managing Robeco’s Latin American business, he will continue to oversee the business in Spain, where Robeco has recently added three new people to its sales team.
