M&G's Equities business manages over €75,997m* both in the UK and globally across a range of investment styles including income, value and growth. We have a conviction-led, long-term approach to investing and believe that we can deliver the best returns for our clients through active, unconstrained management.

The value of stockmarket investments will fluctuate, which will cause fund prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested.

*As at 30 June 2017.

Our philosophy

At M&G we are active equity investors and our specialty lies in generating alpha, or returns ahead of the markets, through expert stock-picking. We believe the stockmarket has a tendency to be swayed by short-term noise, which creates opportunities for long-term investors. Experience tells us that company fundamentals drive share prices over the long run, not the vagaries of economic cycles or the fickleness of market sentiment.

Consequently, we focus on what really matters for equities: the understanding of companies and their valuation in the stockmarket. This is our area of expertise.

We believe in: We don't believe in:
Active, unconstrained investment Closet indexing
Bottom-up stock selection Changing our investment approach if it goes out of fashion
A long-term investment horizon Short-term trading strategies
Independent thinking Management by committee
Consistent application of our investment strategies Following market consensus
Responsible investment, ESG and stewardship A laissez-faire approach to governance
