Robeco has launched Robeco Essentials. The need for education is constant, and by launching this online platform, Robeco aims to share its knowledge and expertise on key topics, to enable financial professionals to further improve their skills and help their clients achieve their investment goals.
The platform will consist of several educational modules, focused on specific key themes for investment professionals. The first module that is available is centred on one of Robeco’s key strengths, and where Robeco is seen as global leader: Sustainability Investing (SI). Other modules, which will also be built on Robeco’s key strengths, will become available on the platform in the coming months.
The first SI module comprises nine building blocks that can be accessed for self-study purposes. Each module includes educational content presented in the form of animated videos, charts, case studies and a summary and after completing a module, a test is available.
For investment professionals it is also possible to accrue hours towards Continuous Professional Development (CPD) accreditation. Robeco sees it as its responsibility to help investment professionals achieve their clients’ investment objectives through the sharing of expertise and knowledge. It already does this by, for example, sharing its knowledge through articles and research papers on its website and organizing masterclasses and ‘explore’ events. With the launch of Robeco Essentials, the company is adding a new and innovative online knowledge-sharing platform to these tools.
The online educational modules are available in local languages in Spain, Italy, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands.
