Institutional Investors 

Welcome to the Liontrust website for institutional investors. Liontrust has a long history of managing investments on behalf of institutions and their clients, members and policyholders. These include pension funds (both defined contribution and defined benefit schemes), insurance companies and local government authorities.

Liontrust’s investment capabilities have been demonstrated by the number of awards the company and our fund management teams have won in recent years. This includes winning Asset Manager of the Year at the Financial News Asset Management Awards 2021.

Through this website, you can read about the processes and capabilities of our investment strategies for institutional investors. You can also find the latest thinking and insights of our investment teams, including the Sustainable Investment team’s 1.5 Degree Transition Challenge and Annual Review, and the Liontrust team that works with institutional investors.

Liontrust strategies for institutional investors

We work in partnership with institutional investors to have a positive impact on their members and policyholders, seeking to help them reach their financial objectives over the long term.

To achieve this, Liontrust focuses on those areas of investment in which we have particular expertise. We believe in the benefits of active fund management over the long term and all our fund managers are truly active. Liontrust has six fund management teams investing in Equities (globally and regionally), Global Fixed Income, Sustainable Investment and Multi-Asset portfolios and funds.

Each of our investment teams applies distinct and rigorous investment processes to the management of funds and portfolios that ensure the way we manage assets on behalf of institutional clients is predictable and repeatable. Our fund managers are independent thinkers and have the courage of their convictions in making investment decisions.

Global Fundamental team

On 1 April 2022, Liontrust completed the acquisition of Majedie Asset Management. This was a key acquisition in continuing to broaden Liontrust’s investment capability and enhancing further our client service.

The investment managers, who have been rebranded as the Liontrust Global Fundamental team, are highly regarded with a long pedigree in managing UK and Global Equities for institutional clients. The success of the team, headed by James de Uphaugh, is demonstrated by the quality of their institutional mandates and the management of Edinburgh Investment Trust since March 2020. As part of the acquisition, Rob Harris became Head of Global Institutional Business.

The acquisition has given Liontrust a client portal for institutional clients, called LionHub. This provides clients with details of their performance history, attribution, voting records and the latest views of the investment team, among other information.
