Robeco adds SDGs & climate credit strategy

Robeco has launched a quant credit strategy focused on SDGs and carbon emissions.

Robeco has launched the RobecoSAM QI Global SDG & Climate Multi-Factor Credits strategy, classified as Article 9 under the SFDR.

The strategy invests in companies that have a measurable positive contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and applies Robeco’s proprietary SDG framework. It is benchmarked against the Solactive Paris-Aligned Global Corporate Index with the portfolio’s average carbon emissions being kept below the Paris-aligned credit benchmark.

The new strategy is managed by Robeco’s Quant Fixed Income team, co-headed by Patrick Houweling.
