Our long-term plans are driven by six ‘global growth drivers’:

Ageing demographics

As populations live longer their pensions need to last longer too. Companies have an increasing need to find solutions to their on-going pension commitments which can apply pressure on their financial resources. At the same time, individuals need to ensure that their retirement funds and other assets can finance longer retirements.

Globalisation of asset markets

Asset markets are increasingly globalised and growing – worldwide assets under management are currently around $74 trillion and expected to increase to around $101 trillion by 2023, representing an enormous opportunity for international asset managers. North America, Asia Pacific and Europe are all attractive markets which continue to expand.

Investing in the real economy

Throughout the UK and beyond, there has been a long-term trend of under-investment in major towns and cities. We continue to experience a serious housing shortage, while small and medium enterprises also struggle to achieve scale without access to long-term capital. This encompasses our 2018 growth drivers of ‘Creating real assets’ and ‘Providing today’s capital’.

Welfare reforms

The need to protect people from financial uncertainty continues. This includes helping people take personal responsibility for saving for their retirement, and safeguarding their financial wellbeing and resilience.

Technological innovation

Consumers, clients and businesses look to digital platforms to help organise their finances and working lives. Technological solutions can increase security, improve the way we work and how we access information. This can mean the difference between success and failure in business.

Addressing Climate Change

Scientists, policy-makers, markets and regulators increasingly agree that we must move to a global warming trajectory below 2°C to avoid potentially catastrophic physical risks which will impact global economies, markets, companies and people. This implies transition to a lower-carbon economy, which in turn creates risk management challenges but also substantial new growth opportunities, including in renewables and innovative technologies.
