M&G Group - http://www.mandg.co.uk
 

Since M&G was established in 1931, they have firmly believed in offering their customers straightforward products, together with clear and balanced information, to help them make the right investment decisions for their needs – a belief that still holds true today. Now, more than 80 years later, they are one of the largest active investors in the UK with over £200 billion of funds under management (as at 30 June 2012).  More importantly, M&G remain at the forefront of investment thinking, constantly seeking to develop their funds and product range to provide the best investment opportunities for their customers.   


Necessary Skills and expertise

When investing for your future, it is important to choose a company you can trust. M&G has 80 years of experience managing funds. Throughout this time they have remained committed to helping their investors achieve their investment objectives. Their expert fund managers focus on companies rather than share prices. In fact, understanding the companies they invest in is a core principle across both equities and fixed interest. Their funds are underpinned by their in-depth investment knowledge and their dedication to careful and responsible long-term growth.

M&G are not interested in chasing ‘hot stocks’ or market fashions. As shareholders, provided their investment case remains intact, they are very happy to support good companies through uncertain times, and that means taking a long-term approach to investment opportunities. This philosophy was recognised when they were named Investment Week’s Best Global Group 2010 and Moneyfacts’ Best ISA provider 2010.


Customer Service

M&G know that investing can seem like a complicated task which is why they go to such great lengths to keep the clients informed and take the time to help them understand all the details of their M&G investments.
