Legal & General Investment Management is the global asset management business of Legal & General Group. Our purpose is to create a better future through responsible investing. We strive to achieve this through a strong sense of partnership with our clients, working together to achieve positive long-term outcomes. We draw on industry-leading expertise to innovate constantly across public and private assets, index and active strategies. And we are a responsible investor, rising to the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
On behalf of savers, retirees and institutions worldwide, we manage £1.3 trillion in assets*. However, we recognise that our significant scale and stature, and prospects for growth, are only possible courtesy of highly satisfied clients.
Being part of Legal & General grants us a unique strength. Everything we do is informed by our parent group’s vision of Inclusive Capitalism, which seeks to share the benefits of economic growth among as many people as possible.
At the same time, we are a unified business that is modern, dynamic and restlessly innovative on behalf of our clients. Our investment strategies cover a broad array of asset classes and styles, including equities, bonds, property and alternatives, as well as multi-asset funds.
Legal & General Investment Management is at the forefront of global index fund management. We are also leading developments in investment solutions for defined benefit and defined contribution pension schemes.
We are truly international, present where our clients need us – from Hong Kong, to major European financial hubs, to Chicago. Our teams around the world are highly dedicated, professional and collaborative and we draw strength from our diversity of talent.
Our US business, Legal & General Investment Management America, is a registered investment advisor, specialising in fixed income, liability-driven investment solutions and index capabilities for the US institutional market.
We are clear on what we stand for and our commitment to inclusivity anchors our behaviours. Driven by our executive team, diversity and inclusion are embedded in Legal & General Investment Management’s culture, from the way we recruit, develop and connect with our employees, to our commitment to responsible investing.

One of the UK’s largest investors and owner-operators
We are one of the UK’s largest owner-operators of commercial real assets. As active managers, we place strong emphasis on income-producing assets across both our equity and debt strategies.
Drawing on the power of our global reach, large-scale capital and operating expertise, we believe we are well positioned to grow the value of our underlying assets and generate long-term returns for our clients.
Investing responsibly for the benefit of our stakeholders and society
Our commitment to responsible investing is driven by the recognition that real assets have a significant impact on society and its ecosystem.
We place environment, social and governance (ESG) factors at the heart of everything we do. We believe we have a responsibility to ensure that our investors’ capital not only produces economic returns but does so in a way that has a net environmental and social benefit.
The world continues to change, and as a team, we recognise the need to change with it. That’s why we refuse to accept the status quo across any of our strategies.
We believe this presents opportunities for disruptive and innovative thinking – whether it’s rethinking the role of retail in our towns and cities, addressing social inequality, or determining the role of the office in a post-pandemic world.
