RobecoSAM, an investment specialist that has focused exclusively on Sustainability Investing (SI) for over 22 years, has been appointed as the sub-advisor to hat Daiwa SB Investments’ new Daiwa SBI Global Electric Vehicle Revolution strategy.

Daiwa Securities Co is the distribution intermediary for the strategy, which is currently available to Japan-domiciled investors. The strategy was launched on 24 January 2018, and as of 27 March 2018, had over JPY143 billion (USD1.4 billion) in assets.

Daiwa SBI’s clients will benefit from RobecoSAM’s collective thematic investing expertise, gained over more than 22 years, to identify and invest in companies that provide solutions to some of the worlds’ greatest challenges.
