Robeco opens Singapore office

Dutch asset manager Robeco has announced the opening of its Singapore office, focusing on credit research and strengthening client services in Souteast Asia.

Robeco has had a presence in Asia Pacific since 2005 with offices in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and now Singapore.

While the Hong Kong office hosts Robeco’s Asia Pacific equities investment team, the Singapore office will be an extension of Robeco’s Rotterdam-based fixed income team. The new office will be headed by Maurice Meijers, client portfolio manager Fixed Income for the Asian markets.

Meijers comments on the launch: “Singapore is uniquely positioned as a leading fixed income hub in Asia, with a strong outlook for future growth. Robeco’s pan-Asia business, which includes offices in many key Asian markets, allows us to gain access to local market knowledge and attract local talent.”

Nick Shaw, head of Global Financial Institutions, adds: “The Asia Pacific region leads the world in new wealth creation and Singapore has long-since established itself as a global private banking hub. The opening of a local Singapore office will allow us to better service our distribution partners and provide local support to institutional clients and consultants in the region.”
