LEI 07. Types of sustainability thematic funds/mandates

07.1. Indicate the type of sustainability thematic funds or mandates your organisation manages.

07.2. Describe your organisation’s processes relating to sustainability themed funds. [Optional]

Based on global sustainability trends, RobecoSAM has identified the "Sustainability Themes" as Sustainable Water, Smart Energy, Smart Materials, Sustainable Healthy Living and Sustainable Food. These investment themes are translated into single and multi-thematic portfolios which often contain a high portion of small and midsized companies with attractive valuations. On a mandate basis the different single-theme portfolio  are combined to bespoke client solutions. The focus lies on companies that develop and market innovative products and services accompanying the emergence of new sectors that are expected to experience above-average growth. As such, sustainability theme investing offers investors attractive return potential.

The definition of the investment universe includes a careful assessment of sectors an industries that are linked to specific sustainability controversies.
