University’s investment needs go well beyond returns, and so must your asset manager

Each university is unique, with different priorities and challenges. For that reason, we tailor our investment solutions to meet your requirements. With our extensive resource and experience, our aim is to address your objectives with effective, proven solutions.

As well as aiming to make sure funds provide a steady return, we’re seeing growing interest in understanding where they’re being invested. You, as a university and your underlying students, look for more and expect more. This introduces a new challenge - where to invest to adhere to high environmental, social and governance (ESG) standards without compromising returns.

At abrdn, our vision is to invest for a better future. By putting ESG factors at the heart of our investment process, we believe we can generate better outcomes for our university clients. The impact of Covid-19 makes this goal even more important. Now, more than ever, we need to work together for a more sustainable future.

Risk warning - Investment involves risk. 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.
