Robeco has been awarded an Asian Equities mandate from Russell Investments for its high-conviction, unconstrained, ESG-integrated strategy. The mandate will be managed by the Robeco Asia-Pacific Equities investment team.
“We are thrilled that Russell Investments has chosen Robeco for our highly-rated fundamental Asian Stars strategy. Robeco has a long history of investing in emerging markets and Asian equities dating back to the early 1930s, and our wide range of global and regional EM equity strategies build upon the vast experience we’ve gained over the decades,” said Stephen Dennis, Head of Robeco Australia.
“Russell Investments have been researching and hiring some of the world’s leading third-party money managers for more than 45 years and we hold more than two thousand meetings each year to evaluate investment manager products around the globe,” said Mr Symon Parish, Chief Investment Officer for Russell Investments in Australasia. “Robeco has been added to the manager line-up of our Russell Investments’ Asia-Pacific equities fund*, with a view to providing excess returns through its fundamental value-oriented approach.”
The Robeco Asia-Pacific Equities investment team based in Hong Kong manages approximately AUD 8.6 billion (end Q2 2017) in five strategies: Asia Pacific equities, Asia ex-Japan equities, Chinese equities, Chinese A-share equities and Indian equities.
Last year, the company received a Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise (WFOE) license and was granted an RQFII quota in China. Furthermore, Robeco strengthened its regional presence with analysts based in the Shanghai office to expand coverage of the Chinese A-share market, enabling investors to capture the tremendous investment opportunities and growing potential of China’s economy and markets.
