Robeco has been selected for a $100-million mandate by Christian Super for its Enhanced Indexing strategy. The expertise and experience of Robeco in integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria in investment decisions was an important factor in the decision.
Robeco Enhanced Indexing Equities is an alternative to passive investing for investors looking for stable outperformance after costs with a low tracking error, whilst integrating sustainability criteria.
Stephen Dennis, Head of Robeco Australia: “Robeco’s Enhanced Indexing strategies are a great solution for superannuation funds that want to integrate tailored sustainability preferences while enhancing market returns. Robeco has been a leader in sustainability investing for over two decades, managing over $160 billion globally on the basis of integrating ESG criteria in our investment process. We are delighted to offer this strategy to Australian superannuation funds looking for sustainable investment solutions and are looking forward to working with Christian Super to achieve their sustainable investment goals.”
Ross Piper, CEO of Christian Super: “Christian Super is delighted to be partnering with Robeco as we continue to deepen the integration of ESG factors across our investment portfolio. Our organisations share a deep commitment to responsible investment, and a long track record of integrating sustainability factors into the way we invest.”
