Quantitative investing

Scanning below the surface

As pioneers in quantitative investing, we focus on what we believe are the otherwise invisible layers at work in portfolios. As we navigate more information and data, our goal is to systematically exploit market inefficiencies.

Some factors are more equal than others

Proprietary research and analysis

  • Ever since Robeco’s first director stated that all our investment decisions should be research driven, we’ve embraced quantitative investing. Our quant researchers and portfolio managers maintain strong ties with the world of academia.

  • They conduct original research and make valuable contributions to quant investment theory. Their work has yielded profound results. It is also pivotal in the development of the sophisticated factor definitions we use.

Tailoring factors to your needs

  • Factor investing can be considered the third way of investing. Striving for low cost and good performance is at the basis of its strong rise in recent years. At Robeco, we manage a range of pure quantitative equity, fixed income and multi-asset strategies. Lately, we’ve seen the rise of a variety of factors. However, assessing factors needs a thorough understanding of what drives the market.

  • Robeco has been using quantitative models designed to exploit investor behavior since the early 1990s. We ensure that all indicators are based on convincing economic rationales while striving to avoid unnecessary trading costs.
