Increasing investment certainty, intelligently

Risk in the spotlight

Risk is not to be avoided, but needs to be effectively managed. Schroders has a lengthy history of finding intelligent, long-term solutions to help clients harness appropriate levels of risk to meet their goals. We draw on our knowledge and experience from across the globe to provide cutting-edge risk management tools and strategies for all types of clients. We also build bespoke risk-driven solutions for large institutions to meet their specific requirements.

The risk and return conundrum

Across the globe, populations are ageing and retirement systems are maturing, while regulation is increasing for all investors. This increases the emphasis on risk management and often leads to assets and liabilities being managed together to protect or increase funding or solvency levels. This is a significant challenge in a low return environment. The solution for many investors lies in creative investment solutions, overseen by managers who understand their unique needs.  


At the cutting edge of risk management

We draw on decades of deep expertise and experience to build “real-world” risk managed investment solutions. Our broad perspective derived from a global client base enables us to share best practice from different countries, introducing new ideas and solutions where appropriate, and collaborating across borders.

We combine global thought leadership, our approach to sustainable investing and in-depth knowledge with the ability to deliver solutions based on a wide range of investment capabilities. Many of our proprietary risk systems have been built from the ground up by our in-house team. 

Integrated approach

For larger institutional investors, we can build products and services designed to help manage specific risks. We take an in-depth consultative approach to risk management, aiming to listen to the specific individual needs and understand the requirements of each client. We then draw upon the vast wealth of our knowledge across the globe to design and implement customized solutions to help increase the certainty of investment outcomes.

Investment options that better match goals

Our broad reach enables us to use investment solutions to match specific needs. We harness the whole firm’s experience and capabilities to provide solutions for a range of client challenges, including mitigating excessive volatility in funding or solvency levels, investing to achieve a required outcome and compliance with regulatory obligations.

All investments, domestic and foreign, involve risks including the risk of possible loss of principal. Investing in equities involves risk considerations, including market risk, prospects of stocks in the portfolio, changing interest rates, and real or perceived adverse competitive industry conditions. Investing in bonds may include interest rate, credit, inflation/deflation risk, mortgage and asset-backed securities, U.S. Government securities, and liquidity risks, to varying degrees. Investing overseas involves special risks including among others, risk related to political or economic instability, foreign currency (such as exchange, valuation, and fluctuation) risk, market entry or exit restrictions, illiquidity and taxation. These risks exist to a greater extent in emerging markets than in developed markets. The use of derivatives involves risks different from, or possibly greater than, the risks associated with investing directly in the underlying assets. Private assets are intended only for qualified and/or sophisticated investors and carry special risk considerations, including illiquidity risk, wide differences in valuations, the use of leverage, and higher credit risk than traditional assets. Asset allocation and diversification cannot ensure a profit or protect against loss of principal. No investment strategy, capability or technique can guarantee it will achieve its stated objective.
