M&G's Equities business manages over £57,675m* both in the UK and globally across a range of investment styles including income, value and growth. We have a conviction-led, long-term approach to investing and believe that we can deliver the best returns for our clients through active, unconstrained management.
*As at 31 December 2016.
At M&G we are active equity investors and our specialty lies in generating alpha, or returns ahead of the markets, through expert stock-picking. We believe the stockmarket has a tendency to be swayed by short-term noise, which creates opportunities for long-term investors. Experience tells us that company fundamentals drive share prices over the long run, not the vagaries of economic cycles or the fickleness of market sentiment.
Consequently, we focus on what really matters for equities: the understanding of companies and their valuation in the stockmarket. This is our area of expertise.
