Equities

We take a conviction-led, long-term approach to investing in equities, built on a history of investment integrity, original thinking and innovation. Today our capabilities include actively managed and systematic strategies, and we are one of the highest-ranked asset managers for responsible and impact investing. *

Focused on fundamentals

As an active manager, we believe that company fundamentals, rather than economic cycles or market sentiment, drive share prices over time. The index is not our primary concern. Consequently, we focus on what really matters, understanding the fundamental value of the companies we invest in to deliver the best possible risk-return outcomes for our clients.

* ShareAction 2020 ranking. M&G placed ninth of 75 asset managers globally.
