Equities

Who are we?

Back in 1931, M&G pioneered the UK’s first mutual fund allowing people to pool their money together to invest in a portfolio of British blue-chip company shares. Since then, we’ve built an equities business and reputation around investment integrity, original thinking and innovation.

Today, our capabilities span the breadth of active strategies to investing in equities, or company shares, Importantly, we are also one of the highest-ranked asset managers for responsible and impact investing.

What are equities?

Equities are shares of ownership in a company. When you buy equities, also known as shares, you‘re effectively becoming a part owner of that business. The fortunes of that company will be reflected in its share price, so if it does well the value of your shares should rise. Shareholders can also earn an income if a company pays out dividends. These generally represent a share in the company’s profits and can often vary depending on how the business is performing.

What do we do?

We take a conviction-led, long-term approach to investing in equities. We believe company fundamentals, rather than economic cycles or market sentiment, drive share prices over time.

We aim to deliver the best returns to investors seeking capital growth and income through active management of our funds.

How do we deliver?

Our culture combines flair and discipline for the purpose of delivering the best possible outcomes, balancing risk and reward, for our customers.

The value of the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.
