LGIM continues to focus on the provision of value-for-money solutions which meet clients’ requirements. Today, we provide index fund management in developed and emerging equity markets, we manage funds against major government bond and global corporate credit indices. In addition, we manage index funds against ethical strategies and in alternative asset types such as global real estate, infrastructure and private equity.
In 2011 the range of alternatively weighted passive equity funds was extended, covering additional fundamentally weighted indices as well as a carbon-efficient index for UK equities. In the fixed income area, the available range of index funds now includes emerging markets debt funds.
In 2011 we responded to the significant increase in client demand for other core competencies, namely transition management, currency hedging, and particularly our dynamic asset allocation services. Plans are in progress to extend our capabilities and reach in these areas.
