Robeco Unveils 130/30 For Retail Investors

Aug 8 2007 | 12:40pm ET

Robeco Investment Management has launched a 130/30 fund focusing on European stocks, continuing a flood of new 130/30 offerings in recent months.

The firm’s Robeco 130/30 European Equities fund, which debuted Aug. 1, is UCITS III-compliant, making it one of the first available to retail investors in Europe. The Luxembourg-domiciled fund is managed by Arlette van Ditschuizen and the firm’s quantitative strategies team.

Changes in European legislation allow an extended use of derivatives within investment funds, according to the firm, allowing for the development of the 130/30 short-extension investment strategy, which combines investments in equities and derivatives.
