How we manage investments

The success of Prudential's funds is a result of M&G Treasury & Investment Office’s (T&IO) multi-asset expertise and a robust investment philosophy.

  • Well established approach

  • Depth of specialism

  • Specialist fund managers


T&IOs Investment Philosophy

The key to delivering long term stable returns is driven by how well the underlying drivers of risk and return are managed in a portfolio.

Every investment decision T&IO make is the result of an approach developed over many years which has led to well established beliefs and attributes.

The investment philosophy allows T&IO to add value from a combination of different areas:


Investment expertise

We're hands-on, proactive and collaborative in our approach to decision-making.

We conduct in-house research and modelling, driving insights exclusive to us.

We demand a depth of specialism at every stage of the investment process.

How the investor benefits

In-house capital market research and modelling

A reputation for creating robust and diversified portfolios that support long-term value and reduce risk.

Strategic Asset Allocation

Our core specialism. Driving performance and decreasing volatility for investors over time.

Access to non-traditional asset classes including private equity, infrastructure and hedge funds, which enable solutions for clients not available with other providers.

Specialist Fund Management

With T&IO focusing on underlying asset selection, we’re able to employ fund managers who specialise in specific asset classes or markets.
