  • SDGs and credit portfolios, delivering financial return and positive impact Sep 25 2019 1:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Guido Moret, Head of Sustainability Integration Credits & Erik Keller, Client Portfolio Manager Global Credits
    The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) take the quest for sustainability to the next level by making integration tangible and measurable. Investors are becoming increasingly interested in investment products that contribute to the realization of these goals and at the same time offer attractive returns.

    Robeco and RobecoSAM have developed a comprehensive proprietary SDG measurement framework with clear, objective and consistent guidelines. Using this proprietary SDG framework, we can construct credit portfolios that are diversified across issuers and sectors, which make a clear positive contribution to the SDGs, and which also deliver attractive financial returns for our investors.

    In this webinar, Guido Moret, Robeco’s Head of Sustainability Integration Credits, will describe the framework for SDG credits investing. Erik Keller, Senior Client Portfolio Manager Global Credits, will explain how SDGs can be linked to credit portfolios.

    The themes that we will be discussing:
    •Why should investors embrace the SDGs?
    •And how can we construct our portfolios with a positive contribution to the SDGs?
    •What is the specific Robeco offer, in terms of SDG credits?
  • ADVISER HOME: How asset managers can influence companies they invest in Recorded: Jul 17 2019 51 mins
    Kenneth Robertson, Tim Gordon and Andy Kirby
    Media and action groups are demanding that large asset managers use their voting powers responsibly and support actions on climate change. But what can asset managers really do about things like CO2 emissions, deforestation, cyber crime or biodiversity?

    By engaging on behalf of investors, Asset Managers can help make changes to businesses to promote a positive, long-term approach, one that is better for financial performance, for your clients and better for society as a whole. Join Robeco's experts as they look at recent engagement examples with companies like Royal Dutch Shell or in industries like palm oil production.
  • Robeco European Conservative Equities: downside protection & stable income Recorded: May 8 2019 39 mins
    Jan Sytze Mosselaar
    Over eleven year ago we launched the European Conservative Fund. Since then, the fund has not only grown into a sizable fund, but eleven years of performance numbers show us that the fund did exactly what it was set-out to do: Having a lower risk level than the market index, leading to higher compounded returns.

    The fund invests in European low-volatility stocks, based on a bottom-up, factor-based model. The fund's long-term aim is to achieve returns equal to, or greater than, those on European equity markets with lower expected downside risk. The selected low-risk stocks also exhibit relatively high dividend yields, an attractive valuation, strong momentum and positive analyst revisions.

    This results in a diversified, actively positioned, low turnover portfolio of defensive stocks aiming to achieve stable equity returns and a high income.

    We have invited Jan Sytze Mosselaar, the Portfolio Manager of the fund, to explain this unique approach.
