Aviva Investors is the global asset manager who chooses the power of integration.
With £337bn assets under management across fixed income, equities, real assets and multi-assets spanning 14 countries*, our clients can benefit not just from our significant local knowledge and experience, but also from the extensive global investment resources at our disposal.
The future is full of questions. Only by working together can we find the answers. That’s why we integrate our whole business around our clients – their goals, their values, the experience they’ll have when they work with us.
That’s why we start by listening closely and understanding our clients’ 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 bring it all together to deliver meaningful outcomes for our clients, now and over the long run.
Integration is our competitive edge and could be yours too.

In this morning educational Investment Focus, we will hear from four leading managers about their approaches on how to generate reliable income streams from an investment portfolio. Over the course of the morning, delegates will breakout into small groups and participate in these interactive presentations.
This unique half day workshop is Accredited by the Pensions Management Institute and is open to pension fund and their advisors.
Given the current uncertainty regarding Covid-19, we have been monitoring the situation closely and have decided to move this event online.
