Manulife Asset Management is a global active investment manager with a long history of investing in real assets and public markets. While we are probably best known for being one of the largest investors in timber and agriculture globally, stemming from our parent company’s insurance general account, we also have significant experience of investing across multiple public asset classes.
We currently manage over £297 billion as of 30 June 2018, across both public and private markets, with more than 475 investment professionals operating in 16 countries and territories. With investment roots dating back more than 100 years, our investors can benefit from our deep market knowledge in the US, Canada, Europe and Asia.
Active Fixed Income - Our flagship multi-sector fixed income team manages over £27 billion in assets. With a total return focus, they combine global and multi-sector fixed income that seek to maximise risk-adjusted returns.
Equity - Our bottom-up, high conviction approach, backed by fundamental research, enables our investment teams to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns with downside market protection.
Private Markets - From our timberland and farmland offerings to US commercial property and infrastructure, our specialist teams provide clients with direct access to real assets.
Liquid Alternatives - We continue to strengthen our offering in this area and have recently added an Absolute Return Rates fund, investing in G10 fixed income, derivatives thereof and FX aiming to provide positive absolute returns on a rolling twelve-month basis with low volatility and daily liquidity.
