An Introduction

Successful investing begins with ambition. And achievement only comes when you reach for it. That’s why we continually strive to deliver better outcomes for investors. No matter what your goals are, our deep, global investment expertise allows us to offer solutions that can help.

Since our founding in 1947, we’ve managed through all kinds of markets – up, down and those in between. We’re always preparing for what may come next. It’s because of this, combined with our strength as one of the world’s largest asset managers, that we’ve earned the trust of millions of investors around the world.

Every investor has different goals. That’s why we offer a wide range of investment strategies that can be combined to help provide the outcomes investors want.

Our strategies are managed by specialized investment teams comprised of more than 600 investment experts around the globe1. These teams are supported by an independent risk management group to ensure investment risks are optimized – not simply minimized.
