Who We Are
ROBO Global is an index, advisory, and research company focused 100% on helping investors capture the unique opportunities of fast-growing robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence (RAAI) companies around the world.
Our global team, including managing partners and advisors in San Francisco, Dallas, New York, London, Zurich, Hong Kong, and Tokyo, launched our ROBO Global® Robotics and Automation Index Series in 2013. Since then, the index has grown to become the premier benchmark for the vast value chain of this dynamic industry, supporting investment products in the US, Canada, UK, Europe, Korea, Taiwan, and Australia.
As experienced investors, we know just how difficult it is to pick the winners over the long term. To tackle that task, our team spends the bulk of our time deep in research, identifying new trends, understanding new innovations, and exploring every company on the radar—and even some flying below the radar—regardless of size, market cap, or technology. The result: ROBO Global® Robotics and Automation Index Series now includes over 80 rapidly developing companies across 12 subsectors focused on the entire robotics and automation value chain. In 2017, the index was up 47%.
Steve Wozniak once said, “Wherever smart people work, doors are unlocked.”
Our strategic advisors are the perfect example of that thought in action. Every day, these highly respected industry visionaries work closely with our experienced management team to identify industry trends and leading companies that are consistent with our industry classification and index strategy. Their constant research and influential insights have been a driving force of our outstanding performance to date.
We’re thrilled that we’ve been able to pull together an incredibly gifted team that includes men and women of such calibre. Every time we hear our team talk about what’s next, we love that we’re not just looking at numbers when we build the ROBO Global Industry Classification and our ROBO Global Robotics & Automation Index Series.
With the work of a growing team of smart people, we’re combing the entire robotics and automation landscape to identify the companies that are poised to drive the greatest change tomorrow… and far into the future.

A History of Innovation
From the beginning, ROBO Global has been all about innovation.
Like any great idea, the concept of an index focused exclusively on robotics, automation, and AI (RAAI) probably seemed a bit crazy at the time. But as we began to look more closely at the companies that were focused on these technologies and applications, we soon realized the sheer scope of the opportunity. Just because no one had looked at investing through this particular lens before didn’t mean it wasn’t a lens that provided the greatest clarity.
We knew from our research that simply selecting companies by the size of their market-cap was not a strategy that would meet our goals. There were simply too many smaller players with too much potential to ignore. With that concept as our springboard, we created an investment strategy that was consistent and diversified, and that provided unique exposure for investors. And we made real industry research a cornerstone of our process, leveraging the insights of established industry visionaries—not Wall Street stock pickers—to select index members based on their potential to drive change in the future rather than what they had already achieved in the past.
In 2013, the ROBO Global® Robotics & Automation Index was born. In 2017, the index returned 47% to investors. Today, ROBO Global is dedicated to continuing to innovate by remaining focused on the world’s greatest innovators in robotics, automation, and AI. Won’t you join us?
