Unigestion is a boutique asset manager with the scale to deliver global tailor-made investment solutions for thoughtful investors. Our core values – integrity, independence, excellence and guidance – are at the heart of everything we do.
We are responsible for managing some USD23 bn in client assets across our four areas of expertise: equity, multi asset investing, private equity and alternatives. We believe that risk management is an enduring driver of long-term investment performance, and we therefore apply a risk lens to all our strategies. In February 2017 Unigestion acquired Akina with the aim of creating a uniquely qualified specialist in global small and mid-market private equity.
Ideas drive our growth, and Unigestion strives to be always at the forefront of innovation in investment management. For us, innovation is about co-creating with our clients the investment solutions that meet their needs through a partnership approach.
With over half of our assets managed through segregated mandates, we have a proven ability to understand clients’ objectives and are trusted by them to design strategies tailored to their needs.
We are privately owned, with a majority of the equity controlled by our senior management, and we focus solely on asset management. This gives us the independence to take a long-term perspective and stay true to our convictions for the long-term benefit of clients.
This independence also means that our interests can truly be aligned with those of our clients. We demonstrate our commitment to our clients by investing our own capital in the strategies we manage for them.
