Dutch asset manager Robeco has appointed Nick King as its head of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) as the company plans to expand its current investment capabilities with an ETF platform. The ETF platform is part of Robeco's 2021-2025 strategy.

King brings valuable experience to the company, having previously served in senior roles at Fidelity International and BlackRock, where he specialized in ETF product development, portfolio management and distribution across various asset classes. His expertise, Robeco says, will be key in steering its development into the ETF market.

ETFs have been under consideration at the company for a while, given their growing popularity and versatility in the investment landscape; and they present a major opportunity, the company notes, to package strategies, complementing existing capabilities offered through mutual funds and mandates.

“King’s extensive experience in ETFs and his commitment to innovation align perfectly with our strategic vision and research-driven approach,” adds Ivo Frielink, the company’s head of strategic product and business development. “Under his leadership, we are confident we can successfully wrap our investment expertise and strategies into a comprehensive ETF line-up.
