Scottish Widows Investment Partnership (SWIP) is one of Europe's largest asset management companies, and is part of the Lloyds Banking Group.
Our main aim is to deliver consistent, superior returns for our clients. We achieve this through a rigorous investment process, which relies heavily on high-quality, fundamental research, and the experience and skills of our investment team.
Our clients benefit from our investment intelligence and the experience of our fund management teams; our disciplined and sustainable investment process based on proprietary fundamental research; and our analysts' and fund managers' ability to share information, discuss investment ideas and make effective decisions quickly.
We manage funds worth more than £146.17bn (source: SWIP 31.12.2010) for a wide range of UK and international clients, including individual investors, investment trusts, charities, financial institutions, corporate and local-government pension funds.
These funds are invested across all major asset classes, including UK and overseas equities, property, bonds and cash. We also offer clients specialist expertise in multi-manager, smaller companies and socially responsible investment, and build dynamic multi-asset investment solutions for institutional clients.
When it comes to client service, we have a presence that stretches around the world: from the UK to continental Europe, the US and Asia. This international dimension keeps us close to our clients, enhancing our ability to deliver excellent client service and build lasting relationships.
We believe that the combination of our talented investment team, thorough process and close proximity to our clients is an enviable combination and gives us a great opportunity to deliver a high-quality investment management service.
