Robeco hires from Pictet for sustainable multi-asset role

Aliki Rouffiac started her career at Towers Watson

Robeco has recruited Aliki Rouffiac (pictured) as sustainable portfolio manager in its sustainable multi-asset solutions team.

Based in London, she will report to Colin Graham, head of multi-asset strategies and co-head of sustainable multi-asset solutions.

Rouffiac joins from Pictet, where she worked for over six-and-a-half years, and brings nearly 15 years’ experience of multi-asset and fixed income research and investing. In her previous role she was a multi-asset investment manager responsible for contributing to strategy and asset selection, portfolio management and construction, and ESG research.

Before Pictet, she worked at Nedgroup Investments for nearly four years, having started her career at Towers Watson in 2008.

The sustainable multi-asset solutions team provides European, UK and Asian clients with bespoke outcome-oriented solutions, both in an asset-only and asset-liability matching context.

It currently manages roughly €18bn (£15.3bn) in assets globally, including multi-asset funds, discretionary multi-asset solutions, and customised liability and buy-and-maintain fixed income solutions.

Graham said: “We’re thrilled to welcome a dynamic professional like Aliki, who combines many years of multi-asset experience with a deep knowledge of sustainable investing.

“Clients increasingly want their capital to deliver more than just financial returns, including protecting the world for future generations. And as we continue to lead the field of sustainable investing, Aliki joins at an exciting time to help expand our proposition.”

Rouffiac added: “I look forward to collaborating with all the talented colleagues in the multi-asset team and across Robeco. I am keen to help Robeco maintain their leading position in sustainable research and investing and improving investment outcomes for our clients.”
