The Luxembourg-domiciled vehicle is headed by Klaas Smits and Shengsheng Zhang, working alongside the firm’s Conservative equities and credit teams.
The pair also manage Robeco’s Global Tactical Asset Allocation and Global Diversified Carry strategies.
“The starting point for managing this portfolio is a conservative mindset,” said Smits.
“The strategy will invest globally across various asset classes and has a special focus on capital preservation.
“The strategy will leverage on the academic work and investment experience of Patrick Houweling and Pim van Vliet with successfully managing the multi-billion Conservative Credits and Conservative Equities strategies”.
Tim Gordon, sales director at Robecco, said: “This launch is to further strengthen our Conservative fund range that focusses on low volatility investing and reflects our ambition to be the leading ‘factor’ asset manager for UK wholesale investors.
“We are very excited with the continuing development and roll out of our UK wholesale strategy that began in late 2015.”
