Global Small Cap Equities

Global Small Cap Equities

The RobecoSAM Global Small Cap Equities Strategy offers investors exposure to global small and mid caps that exhibit superior sustainability profiles and/or deliver solutions to global resource scarcity challenges in the areas of water, energy, agribusiness and materials.

The strategy combines two of RobecoSAM’s key capabilities – sustainable global equities and resource efficiency solutions – to build a concentrated portfolio of high-conviction stocks based on bottom-up stock selection. The strategy seeks to outperform the MSCI World Small Cap Index through a focus on companies that exhibit strong business fundamentals and a stable track record but are trading below fair value, as well as attractively priced small and mid-cap companies operating in high-growth industries.
Key benefits of the RobecoSAM Global Small Cap Equities Strategy include:

  • Exposure to long-term global trends and growth at attractive valuations
  • Integration of sustainability factors into valuation and investment decisions as a differentiating factor
  • Designed for investors who seek exposure to global small and mid caps, or for investors who wish to invest in sustainable global equities
