Insurance

Our new ESG research

We help insurers optimise their investment portfolio to achieve their asset yield, capital efficiency and responsible investment objectives and support their reporting requirements

Insurers have unique investment needs. On the one hand they need to generate sufficient returns on their assets to meet long-term commitments to policyholders. On the other, taking investment risk needs to be balanced against regulatory requirements and the potential for balance sheet volatility.

At Aberdeen Standard Investments, we’ve been helping insurers manage these challenges for almost 200 years. We provide tailored solutions as well as access to a range of strategies and asset classes that aim to enhance the risk-adjusted return on a portfolio. Plus we provide a complete service to meet reporting and fiduciary requirements. This includes complete investment outsourcing where required.

Our vision is to invest for a better future; environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations have been an integral part of our decision-making process for almost 30 years.

Risk warning
Risk warning - Investment involves risk. The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.
