RobecoSAM appoints senior portfolio manager

RobecoSAM, the SRI branch of Robeco group, has appointed Olaf Martin (pictured) as senior portfolio manager for the RobecoSAM Sustainable Global Equities Strategy.

Martin has 12 years’ experience managing ESG integrated funds.

Prior to joining the firm in May 2015, Martin has been working eight years for Zürcher Kantonalbank where he was responsible for the portfolio management of global Sustainability Investing and European equity funds.

Formerly, he managed global sustainability investing equity funds and an equity theme fund at Vontobel Asset Management from 2002 to 2007.

Olaf Martin began his career as an analyst at UBS Warburg.

He will help to “shape and advance” the fund strategy “in line with the evolving global SI landscape and newly emerging global sustainability challenges and opportunities.”

The investment universe of the strategy includes all stocks in the MSCI World that have received a sustainability score and have an exposure to one of RobecoSAM’s sustainability themes.

Martin commented : “I look forward to drawing on the quality of the data and our in-house expertise to further develop the Sustainable Global Equities Strategy – a strategy which perfectly fits the asset allocation of any investor looking to include ESG aspects in their portfolio.”
