F&C is a leading diversified investment management group with a heritage spanning more than 140 years. F&C is one of Europe's largest fixed income managers and has strong expertise assisting insurance companies and pension schemes on asset and liability management and liability driven investment strategies.  Alongside its core institutionally focused investment platform, the Group includes Thames River, a boutique asset manager with strong expertise in managing absolute return and multi-manager funds, and F&C REIT, a pure real-estate manager. F&C has two main business lines: Institutional (insurance and pension schemes) and Retail / Wholesale (mutual funds and investment trusts).

Today the group operates from offices in eight countries and manages £101.8* billion of assets for a combination of insurance clients, institutional investors and private individuals which collectively represent 3 million underlying savers.
