IN BRIEF

Founded in 1804, Schroders is a British asset manager which employs over 5,000 people in 32 different countries.

We integrate our sustainability research into the way we invest across asset classes and geographies. We don’t stop at equities, but use our insights to inform decisions in other areas including fixed income and real estate. It’s integral to everything we do.

Social and environmental change is happening faster than ever. Climate change, shifting demographics and the technology revolution are reshaping our planet. Those companies that can adapt and thrive will be more successful in attracting customers, employees and growing their business.

We are rated A+ for our approach by the United Nation’s PRI organisation and the No.1 asset manager by ShareAction. We don’t tick boxes, but add value through real insight and actively engaging to improve companies’ behaviours and governance.

We bring together people and data to spot the trends that will shape the future. This provides a unique perspective which allows us to always invest with conviction. Delivering long-term value demands powerful tools as well as deep insights. We have always tailored our investment strategies and solutions so that they are focused on protecting and growing our clients’ wealth. That means we’re tough with ourselves – designing and stress testing products and ideas at every turn and ruthlessly discarding anything that doesn’t measure up now or in the future.
