Aberdeen Standard Investments
Aberdeen Standard Investments is dedicated to helping investors around the world reach their desired investment goals and broaden their financial horizons.
We seek to provide world-class investment expertise across a breadth of markets and asset classes. Our full range of solutions span equities, multi-asset, fixed income, liquidity, sovereign wealth funds, real estate and private markets. Coupled with a range of investment approaches, from quantitatively-managed ‘smart beta’ to highly active alpha-seeking strategies, we transform new investment ideas into practical investment products designed to deliver real value for money to investors.
We have one of the world’s largest teams of investment professionals with approximately 1,000 portfolio managers, analysts and product, risk and trading specialists located globally ensuring close proximity to our clients and the markets in which we invest. In addition, we have 500 client specialists working closely with investors and professional advisors to understand their goals and deliver innovative, world class investment solutions. Today, we manage €649 billion (£576 bn/US$779bn) of assets on behalf of governments, pension funds, insurers, companies, charities, foundations and individuals across 80 countries (as at 31 December 2017). The largest active asset manager in the UK, we are also one of the top five asset managers headquartered in Europe and one of the biggest active asset managers worldwide not owned by a bank.
As a responsible global investor, we leverage our scale and market leadership to raise standards in both the companies and industries in which we invest, and drive best practice across the asset management industry. We take our stewardship and environmental, social and governance (ESG) roles seriously. As we are active long-term responsible investors, stewardship and ESG are fundamental components of our investment philosophy and process.
