Tune in now – Robeco launches podcasts

06-02-2019 | Insight
If a face can launch a thousand ships, what power does the spoken word have? Quite a lot when it comes to explaining the biggest issues in investing in a clear and entertaining way. Robeco is therefore proud to launch a series of podcasts about the topics that we feel passionate about.

Podcasts – an audio interview streamed over the internet – have made a remarkable comeback in recent years. They can reach areas that other forms of media cannot reach. People often don’t have the time or space to scroll down a screen to read all of the content of a subject. And they cannot necessarily watch a video, particularly if travelling to work on a crowded train.

This is where a podcast provides the answer. All the listener has to do is plug in their earphones, and the topic in question can be explained to them with great clarity, within 20 minutes or less. When a busy investor’s time is limited, such as on a morning commute, it offers an excellent means of getting a message across.

Robeco will produce a monthly podcast about a topical subject, starting with our two main pillars – sustainability and quantitative investing. The interviews are being conducted by British financial journalist and podcast specialist Sam Shaw, with the aim of producing lively, engaging interviews which are interesting and in depth, but also fun and engaging to listen to. For the first two, we have rolled two of Robeco’s investing titans, Daniel Wild and David Blitz.

Wild is the co-CEO of Robeco’s sister company, sustainability investing specialist RobecoSAM, where he has long served as Head of Research among other roles. In the first podcast, Wild explains why embracing SI is “a good sort of selfish”, as it enables the investor to enjoy superior risk-adjusted returns while also helping the planet on a range of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues at the same time.

Blitz is the Head of Quantitative Research at Robeco and the author of many research papers on the field of quant and factor investing. In the second podcast, Blitz discusses the latest trends and issues in factor investing, in which investors chase factors such as low-volatility, value or momentum to get the best picks for their funds. And he says intriguingly: “We do not offer black box solutions, but rather ‘glass box’ solutions. You can find out what that means in the podcast!

Future podcasts will include our two other investing pillars of credits and emerging markets, along with a wide range of subjects of interest to the modern investor. Stay tuned for future developments here!
