Aviva Investors

Aviva Investors is the global asset manager who chooses the power of integration.

With £337bn assets under management across fixed income, equities, real assets and multi-assets spanning 14 countries (as at 31 March 2019), we integrate our whole business around our clients to deliver the outcomes that matter most, now and over the long run.

Bringing it all together for today’s investor.

Funds in focus

Our Multi-asset Fund range has been specifically designed to support your business and your clients. It contains five risk-managed funds, globally diversified with the aim of delivering consistent client outcomes.
Earning sufficient income without taking an unacceptable amount of risk can seem a daunting prospect. Not least in a world where interest and annuity rates and bond yields are near record lows. However, the potential for reliable income streams and capital appreciation offered by investing in real estate assets could be one solution to this dilemma.
A static fixed income allocation has little chance of out performing in all market conditions. Our Strategic Bond Fund seeks to solve this problem by offering a comprehensive total-return solution, utilising a flexible long-term approach across global fixed income markets.

AIQ

In this special issue of AIQ, we explore what the future holds for China and its EM peers. We investigate three key trends that are shaping China’s growth trajectory: debt, consumer spending and technology. How China manages these issues will have an impact far beyond its borders. The maturing Chinese economy is already hoovering up more foreign investment and stoking greater competition for capital among other emerging markets – we look at the implications for investors in both equity and debt.

One region in particular is proving resilient: Southeast Asia. The likes of Vietnam and Malaysia are opportunistically stepping in to attract companies that are relocating out of China due to tariffs – and bolstering their own growth prospects in the process.  In our Big Interview, political scientist Ian Bremmer tells us how a retreat of US leadership alongside the rise of ‘strongmen’ leaders is generating new hazards across EM. Corporate governance and environmental standards may still lag those of developed markets, but the situation is gradually improving in many countries, as we find out in our in-depth feature on emerging markets and ESG. Elsewhere, we look at the gap between perception and reality in emerging market debt.

Our House View

The Aviva Investors House View document is a comprehensive compilation of views and analysis from the major investment teams. The document is produced quarterly by Aviva Investors investment professionals and is overseen by the Investment Strategy team. Each quarter we hold a House View Forum at which the main issues and arguments are introduced, discussed and debated. The process by which the House View is constructed is a collaborative one – everyone will be aware of the main themes and key aspects of the outlook. Everyone has the right to challenge and all are encouraged to do so. The aim is to ensure that all contributors are fully aware of the thoughts of everyone else and that a broad consensus can be reached across the teams on the main aspects of the report.

Featured insights

Economic development is at a crossroads for emerging markets, and the road ahead will need to be paved with environmental, social and governance considerations.
How China deals with the challenges of rising debt, a transition to a consumer economy and the technological ‘arms race’ with the West will have big implications for investors.
The insurance industry has evolved rapidly since the financial crisis. The next decade is shaping up to be every bit as transformative as firms grapple with a host of factors, most notably the unfolding regulatory framework, digital disruption and climate change.
