The Sustainable Development Goals have made it possible to earn financial returns while also making a real difference to people’s lives. Robeco was one of the first asset managers to launch a credits strategy targeting this arena in May 2018. Now that it has a three-year track record showing consistent outperformance, we can prove that it’s possible to pursue both wealth and well-being.

At the end of the session, we will have covered:
