Junior Portfolio Manager Insurance & Pension Solutions - Robeco

Location: Rotterdam
Employment: Full-time


Robeco's Insurance and Pension Solutions team is part of the fixed income investment division and is responsible for managing fully customized client driven solutions across asset classes for insurers and pension funds globally, with a focus on fixed income.

Insurance companies and pension funds globally face considerable challenges: they are required to generate sufficient returns and meet unique risk, regulatory and sustainability requirements, all while operating in a world of low yields, market uncertainty and softening growth. The insurance & pension solutions team helps clients address these challenges by delivering truly bespoke investment solutions that are optimized based not only on a client’s specific risk and return considerations but also considering the local regulatory requirements and a client’s sustainability objectives.

The team employs a combination of solutions, quantitative and fundamental skills to design and manage these client-specific portfolios and is supported in that by a comprehensive set of proprietary tooling developed within the team. Extensive in-house fundamental and quantitative research both on markets and on sustainability and broad investment experience are at the core of each portfolio. The solutions that the team include LDI (liability driven investments) and customized credit / government bonds portfolios managed with a buy and maintain investment style and focused on for example matching cash flows, delivering an optimal yield, avoiding fallen angels and/or decarbonization.

The team currently consists of six members and cooperates closely with other departments within Robeco concerning the management and distribution of its strategies such as (regional) institutional sales, the insurance strategy team based in London and Hong Kong and other fixed income investment teams based in Rotterdam.

To enhance the management of our range of portfolios, you will be also responsible for developing and validating new front-office tooling. Furthermore, you will be responsible for delivering insights to our clients by creating presentation material together with sales and other team members and presenting to clients.

  • Innovation In this broad environment you have the chance to develop ideas within the team and with other departments. This requires creativity and good communication skills to put forward your idea or translate ideas of others into a suitable client solution.
