After an extensive search, Australian Catholic Superannuation and Retirement Fund (ACSRF) elected to invest in Robeco’s Emerging Markets Sustainable Active Equities strategy, which aims to offer a significantly better sustainability profile than the benchmark (MSCI Emerging Markets Index), while maintaining the ability to provide alpha in emerging markets.
Speaking on behalf of ACSRF, CEO Greg Cantor said, “We are delighted to partner with Robeco in meeting our investment requirements within Emerging Markets. We were particularly attracted to Robeco’s strong focus on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria and how they are embedded within the investment process. It is an important consideration for our fund and one that our members care deeply about.”
The strategy combines three of Robeco’s core strengths: quant investing, emerging markets and sustainability investing. It has been developed in close collaboration with its sister company RobecoSAM, the investment specialist focused exclusively on Sustainability Investing (SI).
Stephen Dennis, Head of Robeco Australia, commented, “Robeco is well-positioned in providing customised ESG solutions to Australian investors allowing them to satisfy their ESG preferences. Robeco and RobecoSAM have championed sustainability investing for over two decades and we are thrilled to offer this strategy that combines the expertise of both entities.”
