Who We Are
With a history of more than 200 years and with US$490.7 billion asset under management (all date as at 31 December 2016), Schroders is one of the world's leading international specialist asset management institutions.
We debuted on the London Stock Exchange in 1959 and are one of the largest asset managers listed there today.
You can have confidence in Schroders. Our stability of ownership and the security of the products and services we offer is underpinned by the fact that the Schroder family continues to hold almost 45% equity in our firm.
With offices spanning 27 countries, we now operate one of the largest global networks of any dedicated asset management company. As a result, our 4100 employees and analysts are perfectly placed to apply our expertise in serving the needs of discerning investors in all major investment markets.
We view Greater China as a key growth area. In early 2008 we standardised our Chinese name to raise our brand awareness and present our capabilities consistently across China, Hong Kong and Taiwan.
A strong presence in Asia
Schroders has almost 40 years' investment expertise in Asia Pacific, and now employs a team of over 700 across offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Mumbai, Seoul, Shanghai, Singapore, Sydney, Taipei and Tokyo.
Our business operating philosophy
We believe that:
- The interplay between market dynamics and long-term demographic, investment and saving trends offers interesting opportunities and exciting growth prospects for the asset management industry.
- Our research-based approach enables us to identify and exploit inefficiencies inherent in the marketplace, and implement a disciplined investment process that will add value to our client's assets.
- Our exclusive focus on asset management minimises potential conflicts of interest and ensures that our objectives are aligned with those of our clients.
