Robeco Expands Sustainable Multi-Asset Team

Robeco has appointed Aliki Rouffiac as a sustainable portfolio manager on its sustainable multi-asset solutions team.

She joins Robeco from Pictet, where she held the role of a multi-asset investment manager.

Before joining Pictet, she had worked for Nedgroup Investments as an investment analyst and Towers Watson as an investment consultant before its merger to become Willis Towers Watson.

In her new role, Rouffiac will be responsible for the further expansion of Robeco’s sustainable multi-asset offering.

Rouffiac will be based in London and report to Colin Graham, Robeco’s head of multi-asset strategies and co-head of sustainable multi-asset solutions.

Graham commented on the appointment:

“Clients increasingly want their capital to deliver more than just financial returns, including protecting the world for future generations. And as we continue to lead the field of sustainable investing, Aliki joins at an exciting time to help expand our proposition.”

Rouffiac’s hire comes after several recent developments in the €200 billion Dutch firm’s sustainable business activities—with €177 billion of its assets currently committed to ESG integration.

Earlier this week, Robeco launched a net-zero transition equities strategy as the company continues to grow its sustainable and ESG offerings.

The strategy will invest in companies that contribute to mitigating climate change, including sectors such as clean tech, EVs, and battery storage solutions.

In May, the company also launched a Sustainable Asian Bonds Fund to give investors access to the opportunities of the growing ESG bond market in the region.
