Robeco is an international asset manager offering an extensive range of active investments, from equities to bonds. Research lies at the heart of everything we do, with a ‘pioneering but cautious’ approach that has been in our DNA since our foundation in Rotterdam in 1929. We believe strongly in sustainability investing, quantitative techniques and constant innovation.
As Investment Engineers, we have placed the acquisition of knowledge at our core ever since our first director said “every investment strategy should be research-driven”. Through the unique integration of three types of research - Fundamental, Sustainable and Quantitative - we can offer ground-breaking investment strategies to our clients.
Since 1999, Robeco (Schweiz) AG has continually expanded the distribution network for its products in Switzerland. All along, we have placed great value on the quality of our employees to ensure that we can offer our clients sophisticated solutions suited to their particular objectives.
Switzerland has been key to a deep commitment to sustainability investing, led by a long collaboration with the Swiss market leader Sustainable Asset Management (RobecoSAM), which was founded in 1995 and acquired by Robeco in 2006.
Following a group-wide restructuring in 2016, Robeco and RobecoSAM now operate as independent sister companies in Switzerland. This new way of working will offer the ‘best of both worlds’, allowing both companies to focus on what they do best, while maintaining the collaboration of expertise in SI to serve clients.
Robeco is fully owned by ORIX Europe, a subsidiary of ORIX Corporation. ORIX Corporation is a Japanese business conglomerate that started operating in 1964.
Robeco has an executive committee and a supervisory board. The executive committee develops and executes the Robeco strategy, and manages the company on a day-to-day basis. The supervisory board monitors the execution of the company policy and advises the executive committee. It includes a representative from ORIX Corporation.
