Robeco launches FinTech investment fund
Written by Anthony Strzalek
International asset management firm Robeco has announced the launch of a new FinTech-specific equities fund.
Robeco Global FinTech Equities fund, which is domiciled in Luxembourg, will invest in stocks of listed companies which benefit from the increasing digitisation of the financial sector.
It makes Robeco one of the first asset managers to launch an actively managed fund that only invests in listed Fintech companies and which is available to wholesale/retail investors.
Patrick Lemmens, lead portfolio manager of Robeco Global FinTech Equities, said: “I have been in the financial industry for almost 25 years, and with my background as trend investor, launching a FinTech fund is the perfect combination of these two aspects.
“FinTech is something that I have always been very passionate and enthusiastic about. In fact, we have invested in the digital finance trend for over six years now with Robeco New World Financial Equities as this is one of the three themes in that fund, but to launch a fund that solely invests in the FinTech space is very exciting.
“With the launch of this fund, we enable investors to gain exposure to and profit from the trend of increasing digitisation.”
