Robeco introduces Emerging Conservative Equities fund

26-01-2011 | Press release On 14 February 2011 Robeco launched the Emerging Conservative Equities. The fund gives the opportunity to invest in emerging markets – but with less risk. The new fund is a result of research into the volatility effect conducted by Pim van Vliet en David Blitz from the Quantative Equities team. The research showed that low risk doesn’t need to lead to lower returns. Due to the low risk investment objective the fund invests in different stocks than traditional emerging market funds. This increases the possibility to diversify.

Fund managers of the new fund are Pim van Vliet and Arlette van Ditshuizen. Pim van Vliet and Arlette van Ditshuizen also manage the Robeco Global Conservative Equity fund and the Robeco European Conservative Equities fund. Pim van Vliet has an academic background and his research into low volatility has been awarded with an Emerald Citation of Excellence award in 2008 (www.emeraldinsight.com/products/reviews/awards.htm?id=2008).
Arlette van Ditshuizen was recently added to the list of best European fund managers by City Wire   (http://www.citywire.co.uk/global/europes-star-cross-border-managers-revealed/a457434?ref=citywire-global-latest-news-list).

Robeco has experience in investing in low risk stocks since 2006 (assets under management: 1 billion euro), has been investing in emerging markets since 1994 (assets under management: 17 billion euro) and has over 15 years of experience with quantative strategies.
