Sustainable European Equities

Sustainable European Equities

The RobecoSAM Sustainable European Active Strategy aims to generate attractive returns from a concentrated portfolio of attractively valued European sustainability leaders that exhibit positive momentum characteristics.

The investment universe for the RobecoSAM European Active Strategy consists of all stocks in the MSCI Europe universe that have received a sustainability score based on the RobecoSAM Corporate Sustainability Assessment, plus any companies with a minimum market cap of USD 1 billion that have an exposure to one of RobecoSAM’s Sustainability Themes. By broadening the investment universe to include small and mid-cap companies that offer solutions to long-term global challenges, RobecoSAM can capture additional alpha opportunities. The resulting investment universe consists of approximately 650 European and theme stocks with a RobecoSAM sustainability score.

As a result, the RobecoSAM European Active Strategy delivers strong risk-adjusted returns over the MSCI Europe Index by providing exposure to European sustainability leaders across all sectors.
