Overview

Whatever your outlook, we believe that active investing can help uncover opportunities, avoid systemic risks and respond quickly to changing market conditions. What’s more, as part of our purpose to create a better future through responsible investing, we engage with companies, governments and policymakers to strive for better outcomes, both for investors and our rapidly changing world.

Active at LGIM

Whether investing in fixed income or equities, we believe our edge in active investing is that collaborative teams of experts can deliver better outcomes for investors, by focussing on alpha generation through the lens of sustainability.

Responsible investing

To achieve the best long-term outcomes for investors, we believe that active investment requires a three-dimensional approach to risk, return and impact. This means bringing together different perspectives to analyse and capture both fundamentals and ESG-related risks which may materialise in future.

At the heart of our investment approach is our cross-asset class research platform – the Global Research & Engagement Groups (GREGs) – which brings together teams of LGIM’s best and brightest equity, fixed income and investment stewardship experts. These GREGs focus on identifying opportunities for potential future gains, as well as avoiding the risks that threaten the sustainability of future returns, all while engaging with companies for positive change.

Joined-up approach to research and engagement

70+ experts organised into nine sector groups

  • Cross asset-class research platform that combines the expertise of credit, equity and investment stewardship
  • Three-dimensional lens to analyse and capture both fundamentals as well as ESG-related or ‘not-yet financial’ risks
  • Maximising our engagement efforts though a joined-up, collective stakeholder approach

Working together, these groups connect the macro with the micro and drive a unified engagement approach, as well as helping implement their insights across our range of high-conviction strategies, each tailored for specific sustainable outcomes:
