Robeco adds net-zero equities strategy

Robeco has launched the RobecoSAM Net Zero 2050 Climate Equities strategy.

The climate transition strategy, classified as article 9 under SFDR, invests in global equities involved in the transition to a low-carbon economy. It will look for companies that make an active contribution to mitigating climate change, following a decarbonization pathway of around 7% annually on average. This will include clean tech, EV and battery storage solutions, mining equipment suppliers and nature-based assets or transition capital providers. The strategy’s portfolio will cover between 30 and 40 stocks from best-in-class leaders.

The strategy will be benchmarked to the MSCI World Climate Change Index and will be managed by portfolio managers Chris Berkouwer and Yanxin Liu.
