Robeco launches sustainable equity strategies

Robeco has launched two new equity strategies focused on climate transition.

The Emerging Markets Climate Transition Equities strategy focuses specifically on the transition toward a low-carbon economy, aligning with the goals of the Paris Agreement.

The Transition Asian Equities strategy also focuses on climate transition, but takes into consideration other environmental and social objectives at the same time.

Robeco has also repositioned two existing fixed income strategies: Transition Emerging Credits strategy (formerly Sustainable Emerging Credits) and the Transition Asian Bonds strategy (formerly Sustainable Asian Bonds); the latter was previously announced in April.

Lucian Peppelenbos, Climate & Biodiversity Strategist at Robeco, said, “We acknowledge the significance and opportunities of transition finance. Our expertise in equities and credits, our deep understanding of emerging markets, as well as our sustainability background are key ingredients to drive successful transition investments. With Robeco’s forward looking frameworks, we can identify companies leading the transition and support them with financing. In this way, we foster positive change and ensure that high-emitting companies are a part of the solution. Over time this creates broad-based value, and thus provides alpha opportunities.”
