We are researchers
Developing superior solutions requires an innovative nature and a pioneering spirit. That’s why we nurture a culture in which new ideas are welcomed and embraced, from investing in Peru in 1930 and Hong Kong in 1968 to launching our first sustainable strategy in 1995.Who we are
1929: Laying the Foundations
Just weeks after the Wall Street Crash, seven Rotterdam businessmen formed a syndicate to invest people's savings and manage money collectively. They named it the Rotterdamsch Beleggings Consortium, later shortened to Robeco. They thought stocks had hit at a low point, but due to the Great Depression, they lost half their money in the first two years. However, they persevered, laying the foundations for the modern Robeco.
The US and Canada are key markets for RIAM US; our commitment stems from the interest we see from institutional investors in ESG driven investing paired with a product offering that is well positioned to provide investment solutions that may be unnoticed new opportunities for alpha, where we rely on a continuous research driven agenda to adapt to the changing world and our client needs.Our Team
