Robeco’s quantitative investment strategies are based on the following beliefs:
Robeco's Multi-Factor Absolute Return captures a diverse set of uncorrelated factor premiums across all major asset classes and markets. To this end, we take dynamic positions in individual stocks (including emerging markets and small caps), individual corporate bonds (from investment grade to high yield) and liquid derivatives on equity markets, bond markets and currencies. Robeco's factor approach enhances proven factors and aims to avoid unrewarded risks and unnecessary turnover. Furthermore, our portfolio construction settings ensure an enhanced sustainability profile. The strategy aims for diversifying returns across market and economic environments, and has a low long-run correlation with equity and bond markets.
