Standard Life Investments

Our equities credentials

Standard Life Investments manages a full range of equity strategies that span the risk/return spectrum. While distinct in their risk tolerances and return objectives, our equity portfolios share a common goal: to consistently add value through active management.

Our equity investment process combines focused portfolio management with proprietary research and significant firm-wide resources. Much of our success is based on our exceptional team which adheres to our clear philosophy and robust, repeatable investment process. The team maintains comprehensive coverage of global markets and enjoys direct access to company management at the very highest levels.

Our areas of excellence include:

  • Global equities – our global equities team stands at the heart of the more than 60 portfolio managers/equity analysts working across Standard Life Investments. The team draws on its collective investment insights to build global equity portfolios that include its highest conviction ideas. The team’s mandates encompass core, unconstrained and income-oriented strategies.
  • UK equities – our highly regarded and well-resourced UK equities team has the full FTSE 350 stock universe under constant research coverage. The team’s investment portfolios span a wide range of strategies, including core, income, unconstrained, high alpha and ethical.
  • European equities – our European equities team of seasoned investment professionals invests right across the European equity universe. The team manages a broad range of products to suit various investor profiles, including core, income, ethical and unconstrained.
  • GEM equities – our global emerging markets (GEM) equities mandates are managed by a highly experienced and well-resourced team. These include single country and pan-regional portfolios, deploying core, income and unconstrained strategies.
  • Smaller companies – our smaller companies team is widely regarded as one of the strongest in the industry. The team scours the under-researched (and under-invested) smaller companies universe to uncover new opportunities to add value to client portfolios, managing UK, European and global mandates.
  • Japanese equities - our Japanese equity portfolios are managed by our strategic alliance partner Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Bank (SuMi TRUST), the largest asset manager in Japan. We believe that this on-the-ground presence provides a critical edge when investing in Japan’s equity markets.
  • North American equities – our high-calibre team in Boston invests in the US equitiy market, managing a wide range of active North American mandates.
