Who we are

We are ABN AMRO Investment Solutions (“AAIS”): about 80 experienced investment specialists, offering a broad range of investment products & solutions to ABN AMRO Bank N.V.’s (“ABN AMRO”) private banking & retail clients, in the Netherlands, as well as Belgium, France, and Germany, and to other distributors, throughout Europe. We manage EUR 17.7 bn (December 2020 including assets under Fiduciary Management), diversified across different asset classes, and delegated to about 30 high quality asset managers from all over the world.

In our capacity as the Asset Manager of ABN AMRO and regulated portfolio management company, we have a proven 20-year track record in selecting sustainable third-party funds. In 2017, we launched our first, exclusive ESG sub-advisory funds, delegating European equities to EdenTree Investment Management and US equities to Parnassus Investments. Both are widely considered as sustainability pioneers within their countries. Last year, we launched our first impact fund with Symbiotics.

We believe that sustainable investing is not a trend but is here to stay. We are committed to today’s society and to future generations. We want to facilitate the transition to a more sustainable society, together with our clients and partners. To achieve this, we are focused on offering sustainable investment products & solutions.
