At M&G, we aim to generate superior long-term returns for our investors*. Whether we are investing in equities, fixed income or property, we see ourselves as stewards of our clients’ assets and take seriously the responsibilities that come with this role.

We incorporate these considerations into our investment decisions, wherever they may have a meaningful impact on risk or return.
