Commenting on the mandate, Robeco Australia head, Stephen Dennis said the fund manager was thrilled that Russell Investments had chosen Robeco for its highly-rated fundamental Asian Stars strategy.

“Robeco has a long history of investing in emerging markets and Asian equities dating back to the early 1930s, and our wide range of global and regional EM equity strategies build upon the vast experience we’ve gained over the decades,” he said.
