Robeco Group announces 2014 results: assets under management and net profit at an all-time high
Rotterdam, 29 January 2015 – Robeco Groep N.V. (“Robeco”) today announces its results for the full year ended 31
December 2014. 2014 has been a year of records for Robeco. During the year Robeco’s assets under management
increased by EUR 40.8 billion, resulting in an all-time high of EUR 246 billion of which 48% was institutional business. This
increase was driven by a strong positive investment result of EUR 35.1 billion, which provided clients with attractive
returns. The increase was also supported by strong positive net cash flows. The investment result includes a EUR 18.4
billion gain as a result of the appreciation of the US dollar.
In 2014 the net cash flow of Robeco amounted to EUR 6.2 billion (2013: EUR 1.5 billion). The US, European and Asian
equity capabilities in particular attracted a lot of investor interest, equally spread across retail and institutional clients.
Harbor International Fund continued to be Robeco’s largest mutual fund, with EUR 39 billion in assets under management
at the end of 2014.
Robeco generated an all-time high net profit of EUR 228 million, a significant increase compared to the net profit of EUR
123 million in the previous year. Performance fees were an important driver of the increase in income, which was a direct
result of strong investment returns for our clients of our performance fee-related products. Recurring management fees
also increased and contributed well, on account of the solid growth in assets under management. The operating result for
2014 was EUR 330 million, a very strong improvement of EUR 165 million compared to 2013.
