Senior Sustainability Investing Analyst, Energy (Fossil Fuels)

Senior Sustainability Investing Analyst, Energy (Fossil Fuels)

RobecoSAM is looking for a Senior Energy Analyst (largely Fossil Fuels) to join its Sustainability Investing (SI) Research Team. The SI Research team is responsible for identifying the most financially material sustainability factors that differentiate companies in terms of their business performance, thereby improving investment decisions. The team contributes methodology ideas to RobecoSAM’s corporate sustainability assessment (CSA), and is responsible for the internal ESG Dashboards and other tools used by SI and Equity analysts. As the SI knowledge hub for Robeco, SI Research contributes unique thematic and company-specific insights and helps investment teams integrate sustainability into their investment strategies.


RobecoSAM gives analysts the unique opportunity to become a true specialist on their sector, a thought leader in the sustainability investing community, and a career as a sustainability analyst. The successful candidate will have a high degree of visibility with companies and investors, and closely cooperate with investment teams group-wide. 



  • Provide in depth and creative analysis of companies in the Energy sector, addressing the most important sustainability issues of concern to investors
  • Contribute to the development of the CSA and produce sector & company analyses to help investment teams identify new opportunities and make better informed investment decisions
  • Take a leading role in driving the link between sustainability and business performance for both investors and companies
  • Work with financial analysts (fundamental and quantitative) to demonstrate the value of sustainability research and how it can improve the risk-return profile of portfolios
  • Publish articles, meet with clients and present at conferences


  • Senior SI Research Analysts have three core competencies gained from working in the Energy industry (including Fossil Fuels) or as a financial analyst: sustainability, industry, and investment expertise (equity, credit or corporate finance)
  • 5 years working experience in relevant fields, providing deep knowledge of at least two of the three core competencies above, plus basic knowledge of the third
  • Master’s university degree in a relevant field, with experience and/or education in business, finance or economics, or CFA designation
  • Knowledge of the standard financial valuation tools (e.g., DCF, EVA, multiples) and when and how to apply them

The successful candidate will have the following skills:

  • Outstanding analytical skills, an entrepreneurial and business-oriented mind-set, and the ability to synthesize both corporate sustainability and financial information
  • Ability to demonstrate how non-financial factors influence enterprise success on the one hand and investment returns and risk on the other, with in-depth, evidence-based research
  • Creativity, flexibility and proactivity, and enjoy cooperation with different teams in an international setting
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills

As the legislations for work permits in Switzerland are very strict, we can only consider applicants who are either EU / EFTA citizens or already hold a valid work permit for Switzerland. Please indicate your nationality on your CV. Applications of candidates that do not fulfill these requirements will not be considered.


Interested?  We look forward to receiving your application including motivation letter, CV and university grades/diploma to recruiting@robecosam.com.
