Frequently asked questions
What is asset management?
Asset Managers pool together money from individual investors with a common investment goal, which we then invest in different assets to grow the value of their money. For example, the money people pay into their pension scheme is pooled into a fund which we then invest to ensure that when each individual comes to retire, the value of the money they put in has grown enough for them to live on comfortably.
