Welcome to Aviva Investors. The global asset manager that chooses integration.

The future is full of questions. Only by working closely with our clients can we find the answers. That’s why we integrate our whole business around our clients – their goals, their values and the experience they have when they work with us.

That’s why we start by listening closely and understanding their investment aspirations and concerns – from low prospective investment returns, to highly correlated asset prices; from the prospect of rising global interest rates, to the challenges and opportunities of market volatility. Through our vast collective industry experience, we’ve been through every market cycle, making us better prepared for the next one.

Inspired by our deep client insight, we build solutions that aim to defy uncertainty, answering the questions that keep our clients awake at night. From large institutional investors to individuals saving for retirement, we work together to deliver meaningful outcomes, now and over the long run.

That’s why we work hard to join the dots across asset classes to find the best investment ideas; why we break down barriers so our teams can connect seamlessly; and why we manage risk with discipline and rigour. By working in partnership, we bring components together in new ways to ensure our clients get the very best of our collective expertise with every investment.
