Robeco launches fundamental sustainable multi-asset strategy

Rotterdam, 25 June 2018 – Robeco announces the launch of Robeco Multi Asset Sustainable. The sustainable multi-asset strategy, which is created in close cooperation with RobecoSAM, is an addition to the existing fundamentally managed multi-asset fund range, consisting of Robeco Multi Asset Income and Robeco Multi Asset Growth. Robeco Multi Asset Sustainable will have a neutral risk profile and is positioned in between the two other actively managed multi-asset funds.

The strategy leverages on Robeco and RobecoSAM’s long history in Sustainability Investing (SI) and extensive in-house expertise. The global fund-of-funds proposition will diversify between sustainable Robeco and RobecoSAM investment strategies and allocate to equity, credits, government bonds and cash. The fund will be managed by Jeroen Blokland and Ruud van Suijdam from Robeco’s Investment Solutions team, who also manage Robeco Multi Asset Growth and Robeco Multi Asset Income.

Robeco Multi Asset Sustainable is domiciled in Luxembourg and available to institutional and retail investors, and to wholesale distributors in key markets upon investors demand.

Jeroen Blokland and Ruud van Suijdam, Portfolio Managers of Robeco Multi Asset Sustainable: “The aim of Robeco Multi Asset Sustainable is to include all the relevant aspects of sustainability investing by carefully selecting a combination of sustainable and impact strategies of both Robeco and RobecoSAM, while generating competitive returns. With Robeco Multi Asset Sustainable, clients don’t have to choose between different aspects of sustainability or between sustainability and return, as this is an all in one multi-asset solution based on a well-diversified portfolio that combines these aspects.”

Fabio Pellizzari, Head of Products & Engineering at RobecoSAM: “As leaders in the field of Sustainability Investing, Robeco and RobecoSAM offer a variety of sustainable strategies across all asset classes and investment styles. Investors in this innovative product benefit from our proven track record in Multi-Asset by getting the best investment mix, which fully integrates sustainability.”

Earlier this month Robeco also announced the launch of Robeco QI Multi Factor Multi Asset, a factor-based multi-asset fund that builds on Robeco’s rich heritage in quantitative investing.
