Aviva Investors 

About us

Aviva Investors[1] is a global asset management business dedicated to delivering investment outcomes that are central to the wellbeing and success of customers. We are wholly owned by Aviva plc, the UK’s leading insurer, with strong businesses in selected markets in Europe, Asia and Canada.

Aviva Investors has assets under management of £246 billion[2] across a range of funds. Our clients range from large corporate and institutional investors including pension schemes and local government organisations to wealth managers and individual investors. We have employees in 15 countries[3], so our investment professionals are well-placed to understand the complexities of local markets.

We offer strategies that balance risk and reward, drawing from expertise across global markets. There are a number of ways clients can access these strategies including open and closed-ended collective funds and individually tailored mandates. Underpinning all our investments is our commitment to sound corporate governance. We work with integrity, everywhere. The ShareAction survey[4] ranked us second out of the 33 largest asset managers in the UK for our responsible investment and transparency practices.

In 2014 we launched our Aviva Investors Multi-Strategy range (AIMS). AIMS comprises outcome-oriented solutions that follow a multi-strategy investment approach. We have launched AIMS Target Return and AIMS Target Income funds, and intend to launch an inflation-focused product in the future.
