"No matter who they are, investors want simple and specific outcomes from their financial products. I have spent twenty years speaking with clients and found four financial goals common to everyone. Whether you are a pension scheme, corporation, financial adviser or individual saver, what matters is achieving reliable fund growth, securing a reliable income stream, obtaining a return that exceeds inflation or increases the likelihood that you will meet a specific future financial liability."
Euan Munro, CEO Aviva Investors
We Are Passionate About Outcomes
In these uncertain times, it’s not enough to simply sell an investment product and hope for the best. Our clients deserve more. We believe that by understanding their investment aspirations and listening to their concerns, we can create investments that deliver the outcomes they desire.
This is what inspires us. Through our engagement with investors, trade bodies and governments we make it our business to know what’s important. We use this insight to craft strategies and products that cater to ‘real’ needs, both now and in the future.
As a global asset manager, we are able to draw upon our collective intelligence, skill and scale in the interests of our investors. We value creativity and our investment teams are empowered and committed to finding and executing great ideas. Diligent research and robust risk management underpin every decision.
As investment experts, we see it as our role to, not only understand our clients’ desired outcomes, but to know how best to achieve them so they can invest with confidence.
Aviva Investors is a global asset manager with expertise in real estate, fixed income and equity investment.
Our investment intelligence spans all major markets, where we currently invest £239 billion on behalf of our investors. This gives us the size and scale to successfully seek out opportunities that will deliver desirable outcomes.
We Are Responsible Investors
At Aviva Investors, we’ve always believed that businesses managed in a sustainable and responsible way are far more likely to outperform over the long term. That’s why we were one of the first global fund managers to integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues into our investment decision-making. We were also one of the first to express our views through the power of shareholder voting.
Today, we are leaders in the field. We are responsible owners who, by encouraging greater transparency and sustainability and better corporate governance, shape new corporate behaviours that help to reduce the risks for our clients. We challenge accepted practices and promote fresh debate in every industry in which we invest. In doing so, we’re creating greater shareholder value while building a genuine legacy for our customers, our communities and the planet that we all share.
OUR WIDER IMPACT
We aim to adhere to the highest standards of corporate governance and corporate responsibility and as a Group we have been recognised for this. Our parent company, Aviva, is one of the top global companies listed with the FTSE4Good Index and performs well in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.We are the only insurance company within the UN Global Compact 100 stock index. In 2013, we were runners up for a PwC Building Public Trust award for our approach to the transparency of our reporting.
Our strategy around the most significant issues for our business - our people, trust and transparency, environment and climate change, community development and responsible investment – are outlined in ‘Our Wider Impact Report 2013’ and in our Annual report and accounts within the Strategic Report.
