Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) is one of Europe's largest institutional asset managers and a major global investor. LGIM manages US$1.330 trillion in assets for nearly 3000 institutional clients and millions of retail clients.
We provide investment expertise across a full spectrum of asset classes including equities, fixed income, commercial property and cash. Our capabilities range from index-tracking and active strategies to liquidity management and liability-based risk management solutions. We are one of the world's leading providers of index fund management and a major investor in global fixed income markets. We are at the forefront of developments in liability-driven risk management solutions for defined benefit pension schemes and offer a large variety of strategies to help our clients manage their investment objectives. LGIM is also a leading provider of defined contribution solutions and we continue to innovate as the market evolves, building strong relationships with clients and their consultants.
At LGIM, we believe that well governed companies that manage all stakeholders, including the environment, are more likely to deliver sustainable long-term returns. We view the consideration of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues as part of risk management, and therefore part of fiduciary duty. We recognise that companies are intrinsically linked to the economies (and societies) in which they operate and we therefore believe that investors have a responsibility to the market as a whole. Our ultimate goal is to protect and maximise the investment returns for the benefit of our clients' assets.
