About Insight Investment

Insight Investment is a leading global asset manager, responsible for assets under management across liability driven investment (LDI), cashflow-driven investing (CDI) and longevity hedging, currency management, fixed income, absolute return, multi-asset and specialist investment strategies.

Insight’s mission is to offer investors a different approach to achieving their investment goals; one that prioritises the certainty of meeting their chosen objectives in contrast to the traditional focus on maximising return and minimising volatility.  Our approach is underpinned by the belief that environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are important drivers of investment value. We believe in integrating ESG issues into relevant investment processes and that dialogue with issuers and other stakeholders supports better investment decision making.

We were a founding signatory to the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in 2006 and, as of 2022, we have been awarded 5* ratings by the PRI for our investment and stewardship policy and for how we incorporate responsible investment-related issues across our fixed income business (corporate bond, sovereign bond, and securitised asset portfolios).

With locations across the globe, our clients include pensions funds, corporates, local authorities, insurers, sovereign wealth funds, wealth managers, financial institutions and private individuals.
