RobecoSAM raises over $100mn from Credit Suisse clients

ESG-focused RobecoSAM has raised over $100 million in assets for its Smart Mobility strategy within two months of the launch on Credit Suisse’s platform.

The company partnered with Credit Suisse in August to offer access to its private banking clients in Asia ex-Japan until the end of October.

A spokesperson from RobecoSAM told Citywire Asia that it does not see capacity constraints for the strategy so far.

‘We have done calculations about the potential capacity of the strategy. The calculations for sure also include any liquidity risk assessments,’ the spokesperson said.

Going forward, RobecoSAM has plans to extend the partnership to other private banks as well in the region.

Managed by Citywire + rated Thiemo Lang, the RobecoSAM Smart Mobility Strategy invests in listed companies involved in the electrification of the transportation sector.

The strategy captures the investment opportunities along the entire electric vehicle (EV) value chain, by investing in component suppliers, car manufacturers and subsystem suppliers.

What’s more, companies that are involved in areas such as electrical grid and charging infrastructure, as well as connectivity and autonomous driving are similarly part of the portfolio.

Available for professional investors and accredited investors in Hong Kong and Singapore, the RobecoSAM Smart Mobility Strategy is also available as an open mutual fund.
