Old Mutual Global Investors was formed in 2012 as part of Old Mutual Wealth, combining Skandia Investment Group’s (SIG's) multi-manager expertise with Old Mutual Asset Managers’ (OMAM's) direct investment prowess. Their distribution reach spans across various key international markets including the UK, Europe, the Americas and Asia. They hold the Elite Provider rating.
When it comes to investments, there is no house view. Each regional team has their own head, but fund managers are completely autonomous, each is free to implement their own style and strategy, which are often very different.
Old Mutual is particularly strong in UK equities and the team has produced very good performance in recent years. The team was strengthened further in 2013, when Richard Buxton joined from Schroders as head of UK equities. The team has considerable skill in all types of market environments.
