Our investment philosophy is based on sustainability, quality and value. Sustainable companies provide products and services that create value for society. Quality is indicated in our three perspectives on a company: competitive position, financial performance and sustainability factors. We rely on proprietary research into ESG and financial factors to develop investment ideas that provide exposure to these features, but with a disciplined valuation approach: overpaying for a business, no matter how strong it is, will result in inferior returns.
The strategy is based on a best-in-class approach to identifying sustainability sector leaders. This screening process is followed by fundamental financial analysis. A proprietary discounted cash flow model that takes into account financial and sustainability criteria helps to identify the most attractive companies.
The strategy is managed by our Zurich-based Sustainable European Equities team. The investment team consists of two portfolio managers and two financial analysts who work in close collaboration with Robeco’s sustainable investment research team. The Sustainable European Equities team is embedded in Robeco's broader Global Fundamental Equities group that draws on the expertise of 65 investment professionals worldwide.
