Robeco has been awarded an Asian Equities mandate from Russell Investments.
The company announced this week it had been awarded the mandate for its high-conviction, unconstrained, environmental, social, and governance (ESG)-integrated strategy.
It said the mandate would be managed by the Robeco Asia-Pacific equities investment team.
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.
The Robeco Asia-Pacific Equities investment team based in Hong Kong manages approximately $8.6 billion in five strategies: Asia Pacific equities, Asia ex-Japan equities, Chinese equities, Chinese A-share equities and Indian equities.
