Aviva Investors is a global asset manager with expertise in real estate, fixed income, equity, multi-asset and alternative investments.
We start by listening closely to our clients and understanding their investment aspirations and concerns. Ranging from individuals saving for retirement through to the largest institutional investors, we believe that knowing what’s important to our clients enables us to provide strategies and funds that aim to cater to their real needs and build relationships for the long term.
Our investment intelligence spans major markets, where we currently invest over £345bn (as at 30 September 2018) on behalf of our customers. This gives us the size and scale to successfully seek out opportunities that will deliver specific investor outcomes.
Carmignac is an independent asset management firm established in 1989 on three core principles that still stand true today: entrepreneurial spirit, human-driven insight and active commitment.
• We are as entrepreneurial today as we always have been; our team of fund managers maintaining the freedom and courage to perform independent risk analysis, translate it into strong convictions, and implement them.
• Our collaborative culture of debate, on-the-ground work and in-house research mean we are always enhancing data analysis with human-driven insight to better manage complexity and evaluate hidden risks.
• We are both active managers and active partners, committed to our clients, providing transparency in our investment decisions and always being accountable for them.
With capital entirely held by its fund managers and staff, Carmignac is now one of Europe's leading asset managers, operating from 8 different offices.
Today, as throughout our history, we are committed to trying harder to actively manage our clients' savings over the long-term.
