M&G does not chase investment fashions or fads, preferring to develop active fund strategies that stand the test of time. There is no house view or list of approved stocks. Instead individual fund managers are encouraged to develop their own approach to investment.
Most M&G fund managers are stock-pickers, who build their investment portfolios from the bottom upwards. Thorough research is undertaken to identify the most promising investment opportunities, with a strong emphasis on company meetings.
M&G has always taken its responsibilities as an investor in companies extremely seriously. It works closely with management teams to ensure the highest standards of corporate governance are met. M&G discloses its full voting record on corporate motions every quarter.
