Guido Baltussen

Head of Quant Allocation
“Evidence-based investing has been rewarding both within and across markets over more than two centuries and will continue to do so in the future. I strongly believe that factor premiums can be harvested ‘everywhere’ (ranging from single names (i.e. stocks and bonds) markets to index-level markets), and that doing this in a balanced, prudent and efficient manner provides true solutions for clients.”

His primary responsibility is Robeco’s quantitative multi-asset strategies, and he is specialized in Factor Investing strategies and Behavioral Finance. Guido joined Robeco in 2017, before he worked as Head of Fixed Income and Multi Asset Research at NN Investment Partners, and Senior Quantitative Researcher at Robeco.
