Our investment capabilities
To meet the evolving needs of insurers, we have developed capabilities across a broad range of asset classes. These include investments that offer significant diversification and capital-efficient qualities across absolute return, emerging market debt, real estate lending, infrastructure, private equity, high yield and money markets. In addition, we can offer bespoke liability-aware solutions where appropriate, and assume fiduciary responsibilities for investors who would like to outsource investment decisions.
With an active management style, our team of dedicated equity investment professionals is focused on generating consistent performance. Regular meetings with the management teams of the companies in which we are, or may be, invested, are central to our stock-picking insights – helping us spot opportunities the wider market has missed. Complementing this is our team-based approach, which ensures that our investment insights are leveraged to best effect across all geographies and asset classes.
We offer a wide range of government, investment grade credit, high-yield credit, emerging market debt, inflation-linked bond and multi-asset bond strategies. In addition, investors can access innovative absolute return strategies that seek low risk, positive performance in all investment environments through dynamic allocation to fixed income opportunities. Our fixed income team works closely with colleagues from the equity and multi-asset desks, and benefits from the knowledge of our risk and strategy teams. This allows our fixed income analysts to share their ideas – to the ultimate benefit of our clients.
Standard Life Investments is one of the largest real estate investment managers in the world. A benefit of our size is that we can maintain specialised in-house expertise in asset management, research, development, marketing, rent collection, credit assessment and accounting. Strong research is a proven part of our investment process and our all-round capabilities are reflected in our long-term track record.
Multi-asset and absolute
Standard Life Investments is increasingly gaining a reputation as a provider of innovative multi-asset investment solutions. For example, our highly experienced multi-asset investing team is responsible for our successful Global Absolute Return Strategies (GARS) portfolio, as well as the execution and maintenance of a wide range of liability-driven investment (LDI) strategies and more traditional balanced (mixed asset) mandates.
Private equity funds provide a compelling means for investors to enhance performance and diversify their portfolios. We offer a broad range of investment options, including in-house capital and limited partnerships, fund of funds and other bespoke private equity investment services. We only invest in businesses with proven products, customers and revenues. This approach has allowed us to generate excellent returns for our clients.
