About M&G Investments

The investment evolution

People are demanding more from their investments and from those who manage them. They want their money to be invested sustainably in assets and companies that don’t harm the planet. But investments must still fulfil their primary purpose – to provide sustained growth and meet people’s long-term financial needs.

Investment companies can’t solve the world’s problems overnight. Responsible investing is a vast, complex subject. Sustainability goals like achieving net zero emissions or improving social equality will impact life for millions of people and will take years to achieve. It’s evolution not revolution.

The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. The views expressed in this document should not be taken as a recommendation, advice or forecast.

As the original long-term active investors, we know that sustainability requires serious commitment. We know that meaningful actions speak louder than empty rhetoric. And we know that we can’t create a new world just by forgetting the old one. Investors must consider the trends and changes that will affect our lives over the coming decades as the world becomes more sustainable. They must also acknowledge the risks and opportunities that these changes present. From shifting consumer habits, new regulations, better technology and much more. That’s why we believe it’s time for an investment evolution. One that values forward-thinking and a long-term outlook. An evolution that looks beyond short-term market events to the fundamentals that deliver positive returns, for both investors and the planet.

Staying ahead of the times also requires an active investment approach, with high-quality research and a consistent framework. Active investors have the freedom to pick investments that they believe will adapt and flourish as the world changes. Aiming to good outcomes for the planet, but also good returns for their clients over the long term. While avoiding those companies and assets that actively do harm, or fail to adapt and risk being left behind. 

We also believe in the power of engaging with investees. Using our influence to encourage positive changes for the benefit of our clients, society and the planet. 

When it comes to the future, there’s no quick fix. Together we can work towards a future that’s better for everyone.
