Rotterdam-headquartered Robeco has set up a high conviction strategy targeting emerging market equity whilst incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.
The fund selects companies from a sustainable universe based on top-down country analysis and bottom-up stock ideas.
According to the Dutch firm, its ESG profile and environmental footprint will be “significantly better” than its benchmark – the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.
The Robeco Sustainable Emerging Stars Equities portfolio will consist of around 35 to 50 holdings, resulting in an active share of above 80%.
It will be managed by Jaap van der Hart and Fabiana Fedeli, members of Robeco’s emerging market equity team.
The fund is domiciled in Luxembourg and available to institutional and retail investors, as well as wholesale distributors in key markets at the request of investors.
