Sustainable Investment Strategist Multi Asset - Robeco

Location: Rotterdam
Employment: Full-time


The Sustainable Multi Asset Solutions team provides wholesale and institutional clients with bespoke outcome-oriented solutions to achieve their financial and sustainability goals, both in an asset-only and asset-liability matching context. The team currently manages approximately EUR 15 billion in assets globally, including multi asset funds, discretionary multi asset solutions, and bespoke liability and cash flow driven fixed income solutions. Clients are increasingly looking beyond traditional risk and return metrics; they want their capital to be sustainably deployed and to have a positive and measurable impact on the environment and wider society. We are expanding the team and are looking for a sustainable investment strategist who can help the further buildout of our sustainable multi asset offering.

As sustainable investment strategist you will help ensure Robeco remains a market leader in sustainable investing and drive growth in impact driven multi asset solutions. You will lead the development and delivery of sustainable investment solutions across asset classes to meet our clients’ needs. It is a practical role, where you will be contributing with your sustainability expertise directly in portfolios, product development, research, operational and/or commercial efforts.

You will help to extend and further refine our sustainable multi asset fund range and ensure impact considerations are part of the entire investment process, including reporting and risk monitoring. As such you will need to completely understand how impact is addressed across the entire fund range of Robeco which form the building blocks for the multi asset capability. Part of the job will also be in helping to adjust already existing portfolios when striving for specific sustainability goals in multi asset context.

This will be a pioneering role and in order to be successful you will need to continuously connect internally to the sustainability teams & specialists within Robeco and develop a two-way dialogue. Doing this will allow you to bring our sustainable multi asset investment offering to the next level, by addressing both the impact and investment considerations when it comes to making investment decision across asset classes, from a top down and bottom up perspective.
