Overview

Equity investing can provide an opportunity to share in the profits and growth of companies. We invest with an active mindset, believing that opportunities can always be uncovered through collaboration and insight. What’s more, as part of our purpose to create a better future through responsible investing, we collectively engage with companies and governments through LGIM’s unified fixed income, equity and investment stewardship teams to strive for better outcomes, both for investors and our rapidly changing world.

Active equity at LGIM

Our edge in active investing lies in our conviction that collaborative teams of experts can deliver better outcomes for investors by focusing on alpha generation and sustainability. Discover more about what makes us different below.

For more on our investment process, read our Active Strategies outlook.

We believe that companies who look to actively manage their ESG impact will deliver sustainable returns over the long term. By focusing on these ESG factors in our valuations this will help us deliver long-term outcomes for our investors.
Gavin Launder, Head of Active Equities, LGIM

Responsible investing

We believe that responsible investing can strengthen long-term returns, through mitigating risks and unearthing investment opportunities.

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 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. 

In line with our purpose to create a better future through responsible investing, all of our active equity strategies aim to benefit from LGIM’s broader ESG integration and active engagement.
