Sustainability motivates, informs, and defines our entire asset management capabilities and we integrate ESG criteria within all of our investment products and services.

Our sustainably-driven investment strategies are centered around the following product channels:


Sustainable Core Equity Strategies—apply an advanced, proprietary approach to ESG integration  to create concentrated, quality-focused, high-conviction portfolios with low environmental impact. Products within this category include regional and global equity markets as well as market segments. Our core products include Sustainable Global Equities, Sustainable European Equities as well as Sustainable Global Small and Midcap Equities.


Sustainable Thematic Equity Strategies—invest in companies providing ingenuity and innovation to address global challenges of climate change, resource scarcity, land & water pollution, rapid urbanization, deteriorating infrastructure, and escalating chronic disease & healthcare expenses. Through our thematic products covering Water, Food & Agriculture, Energy, Materials and Healthy Living.


Sustainable Impact Equity Strategies—combine the power of qualitative research & quantitative data to invest in companies with a strong positive social impact on society, specifically targeting the issues of inequality and justice. We currently offer products targeting Gender Equality and Children’s rights and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and aim to expand these to other impact areas.


Sustainable Quant & Fixed Income Solutions—maximize superior expertise across sustainability research, quantitative analysis, and portfolio management. Along with our sister company, Robeco Institutional Asset Management (Robeco), we also offer sustainable active and semi-active investment solutions in the field of quantitative investing and fixed income.


Customizable Solutions—In addition to our Fund offering, RobecoSAM offers large institutional investors customized investment solutions and mandates that incorporate sustainability criteria, including optimized, active and unconstrained strategies.
