Standard Life Investments

Liquidity investment expertise

Successfully managing more than £40 billion* in liquidity assets requires investment expertise across a range of asset classes. For example, our liquidity team benefits from research carried out by the credit experts within our fixed income team. Input from our macroeconomic and rates teams is also invaluable. We can demonstrate significant expertise across all these areas. Our liquidity team works closely with our fixed income team, and particularly our credit specialists.

Led by Gordon Lowson, our liquidity team contains seven talented investment professionals with an average of 23 years’ experience in money markets. The team manages liquidity assets for a range of clients including our parent company, Standard Life Group, as well as other insurers, such as the Phoenix Group of companies.

Our liquidity team works closely with our fixed income team, and particularly our credit specialists. With £107 billion** in fixed income assets under management, we are one of the top five fixed income managers in the UK. To manage these assets, we have built a fixed income team containing over 50 dedicated investment professionals.

At Standard Life Investments, we emphasise a collegiate approach whereby our managers share their investment ideas across the business – to the ultimate benefit of our clients. We also combine the role of portfolio manager and analyst as this gives intimate knowledge of the securities in which our managers invest and maximises accountability.
