Peter Walsh, Head of Robeco UK, says: “We are delighted to welcome Nick to Robeco. His wealth of expertise and enviable track record will be invaluable to drive our business development strategy for the wholesale channel in the UK, as well as further build our leadership in sustainable investing among UK distributors. This and Katie Weber’s appointments represent a significant commitment to our UK presence, a highly important and strategic market for the business.”
 
Nick Keem, Head of UK Wholesale, says: “I am very pleased to join such a well-established leader in sustainable investing. Robeco’s broad range of strategies including sustainable investing, quant, credit, trends & thematic, and emerging markets investing, means we are extremely well placed to support and meet the demands of existing and new UK wholesale clients. To lead and contribute to Robeco’s growth in this market at such a pivotal time is an exciting prospect. I look forward to working with the team.”
