We manage a total of USD193 billion1 across equity, fixed income, multi asset, quantitative and alternative strategies on behalf of institutional and individual investors globally.

Our investment expertise and reach are further complemented by our joint ventures in India, China and Thailand, as well as our strategic partnerships in US and Europe. The diversity of our teams fosters a culture of open communication and debate, allowing us to seek best ideas and high conviction views.

We integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations in all our investment processes and are a signatory to the UN-supported Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI), the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment.

As an active manager, we seek to use our global expertise and deep Asian insights to capture investment opportunities in Asia and around the world.
