Shape the future with Impact Investing

In response, the global community has come together to address these challenges by launching the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). And at RobecoSAM, we are actively contributing towards meeting the SDGs. Find out how our Impact Investing solutions help address global challenges while generating positive returns for investors.

The 17 goals reflect a renewed commitment to a set of universal priorities ranging from ensuring the availability of water and sanitation for all, ensuring food security and achieving gender equality, to ensuring access to affordable and sustainable energy by 2030. But governments and civil society will need to mobilize private capital to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, creating opportunities for investors who wish to generate positive social and environmental impacts through their investments.

This is where RobecoSAM's Impact Investing solutions come in.

From niche to mainstream

Impact Investing has traditionally been considered a niche concept that focused on microfinance, private equity or project financing. But to achieve a socio-economic impact on a larger-scale, Impact Investing is increasingly being applied to mainstream asset classes ranging from listed equities to fixed income.   Daniel Wild, Co-CEO of RobecoSAM explains how our range of investment solutions can help you make a positive societal impact.
