We are a truly global investment organisation providing investment management, retirement and trust and custody services to institutional, retail and high net worth investors around the world, with over 25 offices in 15 countries. Our primary investment centres in London, Chicago, Toronto and Hong Kong are complemented by a number of specialist investment teams in Europe and North America.

Asset management is our only line of business. Through the provision of market-leading investment capabilities across a diverse range of asset classes, we focus on innovating and delivering investment solutions for our clients. We offer access to core competencies including global and regional equities (in both developed and emerging markets across the market-cap spectrum), global rates and money markets, investment grade and non-investment grade credit (including buy and hold), multi-asset and multi-manager solutions, as well as award-winning franchises in LDI, property and responsible investment. We also offer an innovative range of smart-beta solutions, systematic/quantitative equities, index-trackers, private equity funds, ETFs, absolute return fixed income solutions, convertible bonds, municipal bonds, and green bonds.

Our business is ultimately built around understanding our clients’ objectives and providing innovative solutions to meet those objectives. Our business has grown by following a single-minded approach to understanding our clients’ needs – finding out how we can best help them, and building lasting relationships. We recognise that world markets and client requirements change and as a result we constantly develop our products and solutions in order to help our clients continually achieve successful investment outcomes. With an experienced team of over 350 investment professionals across the globe and the backing of a strong parent company, we have the resources, experience and infrastructure in place for us to continue delivering innovative investment solutions to an ever-evolving marketplace.
