Quantitative Investment

Creating portfolios that focus on the drivers of excess return.

Risk warning

The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.

Broaden your potential

With more than £40bn* of assets under management, our quantitative investment strategies team offers a wide range of building blocks that follow a traditional, sustainable or enhanced- indexation approach. Through a single trade, investors can gain exposure to hundreds of securities in a cost-effective manner.

Target your outcome
Whether investors are looking for passive exposures, improved sustainable outcomes, or outperformance in a risk-controlled manner, abrdn offers solutions across both listed equities and fixed income. So whatever your investment goals, we aim to have a solution to match them.
Focus on sustainability
At abrdn, we apply active ownership across a number of our funds. We engage with all our active equity holdings and also vote on all our equity holdings.

What we offer

We offer traditional equity and fixed- income indexation strategies across a wide range of global, regional and local markets.
Enhanced indexation
We focus on multiple ‘risk premia,’ such as value, quality and momentum. We target above-benchmark returns in a risk-controlled manner.
Sustainable indexation
We track our own customised equity and fixed- income indices. These aim to deliver improved sustainable outcomes, while retaining the same risk and return profile as their parent indices.
