LGIM cements its position as largest UK asset manager, with over $1 trillion AUM (£746 billion)*
LGIM is rated top for responsible investment compared to world’s 15 largest asset managers by ShareAction
*Source: LGIM as at 31 December 2015. The AUM disclosed aggregates assets managed by LGIM in the UK and LGIMA in the US and includes the value of securities and derivatives positions.
In partnership with, and on behalf of, our clients we target a broad range of ESG objectives. These include:
- Reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner across all assets under management
- Setting an interim target of 70% of eligible AUM to be managed in alignment with this net-zero ambition by 2030
- Achieving net-zero carbon across our real estate portfolio by 2050 
 For this first interim target, unveiled as part of the Net Zero Asset Manager initiative, LGIM has excluded Government securities and Derivative assets due to lack of clear industry methodologies to account for these asset classes to date.
