As a European asset manager operating globally, Robeco has long been able to combine the best of both worlds. We have global reach and ambitions, while retaining our Rotterdam roots, keeping our head office in the city in which we were founded in 1929. After almost a century of serving investors, employment at Robeco follows a similar path: we hire and then nurture people who can think internationally and put the client first, while also having their feet firmly on the ground.
Diversity is part of the mix, since Robeco has strong links with academia which underpins much of the research used in our pioneering quantitative and sustainability investing strategies. This means we are as likely to attract economists and geographers as people with a financial background. Likewise, we are also pioneers in emerging markets investing, which requires people from diverse backgrounds to add local knowledge.
Our culture of high performance allows us to share the success. Our mission is to enable our clients to achieve their financial objectives through superior investment solutions, which means having a motivated and dedicated workforce. We offer an informal and flexible office culture to allow people to feel comfortable, and therefore perform to the best of their ability.
