Robeco is an international asset manager offering an extensive range of active investments, from equities to bonds. Research lies at the heart of everything we do, with a ‘pioneering but cautious’ approach that has been in our DNA since our foundation in Rotterdam in 1929. We believe strongly in sustainability investing, quantitative techniques and constant innovation.
As Investment Engineers, we have placed the acquisition of knowledge at our core ever since our first director said “every investment strategy should be research-driven”. Through the unique integration of three types of research - Fundamental, Sustainable and Quantitative - we can offer ground-breaking investment strategies to our clients.
Since 2000 Robeco has offered clients in the Middle East & Africa the unique advantage of local knowledge and specialist investment capabilities, combined with the global strength and expertise of ORIX Europe, our parent company headquartered in the Netherlands.
As one of the leading asset managers worldwide, we offer a solid base in Europe with expertise to match, as well as a prominent presence in the rest of the world including Asia, America, the Middle East and Africa. Robeco has been operating in the Middle East for a decade, with a presence not only including the six countries of the Gulf Co-operation Council, but also the Levant, Africa and frontier markets.
The Robeco Middle East & Africa office is located in the DIFC and regulated by the DFSA.
Our vision in the Middle East, Africa and Frontier Markets is to be recognised and valued as a world-class asset manager for expert institutional investors.
