ESG statement

We are Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM), the asset-management arm of Legal & General Group. Our purpose is to create a better future through responsible investing. We strive to achieve this through a strong sense of partnership with our clients, working together to achieve positive long-term outcomes. We draw on industry-leading expertise to innovate constantly across public and private assets, index and active strategies. And we are a responsible investor, rising to the challenges of a rapidly changing world.

On behalf of savers, retirees and institutions worldwide, we manage US$1.5 trillion in assets.*

We recognise that our significant scale and stature, and prospects for growth, are only possible courtesy of highly satisfied clients.

Being part of Legal & General grants us a unique strength. Everything we do is informed by our parent group’s vision of Inclusive Capitalism, which seeks to share the benefits of economic growth among as many people as possible.

At the same time, we are a unified business that is modern, dynamic and restlessly innovative on behalf of our clients. Our investment strategies cover a broad array of asset classes and styles, including equities, bonds, property and alternatives, as well as multi-asset funds.

LGIM is at the forefront of global index fund management. We are also leading developments in investment solutions for defined benefit and defined contribution pension schemes.

We are international, present where our clients need us – from Hong Kong, Tokyo and Melbourne, to major European financial hubs, and Chicago. Our teams around the world are highly dedicated, professional and collaborative and we draw strength from our diversity of talent.

Our US business, Legal & General Investment Management America, is a registered investment advisor, specialising in fixed income, liability-driven investment solutions and index capabilities for the US institutional market.

We are clear on what we stand for and our commitment to inclusivity anchors our behaviours. Driven by our executive team, diversity and inclusion are embedded in LGIM’s culture, from the way we recruit, develop and connect with our employees, to our commitment to responsible investing.
