Robeco to move Rotterdam headquarters

RotterdamDutch asset manager Robeco will move its Rotterdam headquarters to a different building in the city when the lease on its current premises expires in 2016.

The firm said its current home, which has housed the company for 20 years, no longer meets its need for an “open and transparent building” that encourages communication and offers the flexibility to cut back or expand in future.

The new premises will be in the First building, a skyscraper to be developed next to Rotterdam Central station by Maarsen Groep and MAB Development.

Robeco, which had €150 billion under management at the end of 2010, has been based in Rotterdam since it was founded in 1929.
