Newton Investment Management is a London-based, global investment management firm, providing a focused range of investment strategies to public and private-sector DB and DC pension funds, corporations, charities and, via BNY Mellon, individuals. We run a broad range of equity, fixed-income and multi-asset strategies, and have particular expertise in absolute-return, income-focused, high-conviction and sustainable investing.
We use bottom-up security selection tied with a thematic framework to create and manage strategies that aim to help secure our clients’ futures. Our global investment themes are vital to us in providing crucial perspectives on the investment landscape. They identify key long-term forces of structural change, such as changing demographics and a technological revolution, and give us a framework for research and debate.
Our investment managers are supported by career global research analysts who provide investment ideas based on bottom-up fundamental research. Our investment professionals work as part of a single investment team, which promotes perspective on the investment landscape, strong idea generation and the swift implementation of investment ideas.
In addition to financial measures, we evaluate factors such as environmental impacts, social standards, and the effectiveness of people in charge. We believe this ‘purposeful ownership’ approach allows us to better manage risk and make more informed investment decisions.

We will hear from two market experts who will share their experience from the past few months, answer questions live, and provide you with key insights to take away and apply to your pension fund.
