The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause fund prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

Global partners

At M&G, we take the time to understand our clients’ specific needs and we pride ourselves on our ability to respond to those needs through a combination of global capabilities and local market perspectives. It’s an approach that has seen us become one of Europe’s largest active investors.

Anticipating market trends

M&G has been at the forefront of investment thinking since we were established in 1931. We’re continually improving what we offer to match your changing needs and those of the market.

Every economic situation can provide opportunity if you know where to look. We have a long history and reputation for creating innovative investment ideas that buck the trend.

Our ability to anticipate market trends and produce products to capitalise on them, is what sets us apart from our peers.

A history of investment firsts

M&G pioneered the unit trust industry in the middle of the Great Depression by launching the UK’s first unit trust on 23 April 1931.

Here are some more examples of our ground-breaking initiatives:

Investment principles

Our principles include investing for the long term, accumulating short-term movements, staying the course and acting on conviction:

  • Investing for the long term: We invest in companies for the long term, rather than chasing share prices. We believe this is the best approach for equities and fixed income.
  • Accumulating short-term movements: At the same time, we recognise the higher level of risk that active share traders face when looking for quick wins by trading on short-term market movements. We turn this to our advantage. In fact, one of the biggest potential benefits of long-term investing comes from the accumulation of short-term movements over many years.
  • Staying the course: We understand that even the best businesses suffer dips in their fortunes. This is why we stay invested in a company if we believe there’s more value still to come.
  • Acting on conviction: Acting on the courage of our convictions while armed with the relevant information is key to our long-term investment success.

A team approach

Our fund managers are backed by vast yet focused in-house resources, including teams of credit analysts and equity investment specialists. Our managers develop a far more in-depth understanding of the companies they invest in than they would by merely analysing a balance sheet.

Tom Dobell, manager of the M&G Recovery Fund, for example, is actively involved in the management of many of the companies in which he invests in order to help them achieve their full potential.

Our belief in allowing our managers to act on their own convictions has seen us thrive through more than 80 years in the industry. It has made us a recognised leader in equities, fixed income and property – and is proving its worth in our recently launched M&G Episode Multi Asset range.
