The investment philosophy for producer trends equity is based on our conviction that we can generate alpha:
Our investment process consists of three steps: First, top-down identification of long-term trends coming from industrial innovation. The four major long-term trends are ‘Robotics’, ‘Digital manufacturing’, ‘Energy transition’ and ‘cybersecurity’. Second, bottom-up selection of companies that combine a relevant exposure to the selected themes with upside potential. Third, careful portfolio construction where the size of positions is based on conviction level and risk characteristics.
The global industrial innovation equity strategy is managed by two portfolio managers, based in Rotterdam. These portfolio managers are supported by two trend researchers and the other trend portfolio managers within the Trends Equities team. This team is responsible for a range of trend strategies that are expected to provide above average returns by profiting from long term structural trends. The portfolio managers also have access to Robeco’s sector, emerging markets and sustainability analysts.
