StanLib partners Threadneedle for global and EM equity
South African investment manager StanLib has chosen Threadneedle Investments as its partner for global and emerging market equity. Threadneedle will manage portfolios worth in excess of $800m.
StanLib strategically partners with offshore asset managers to deliver consistent risk-adjusted returns across its offshore investment range. Threadneedle was chosen after an 18-month review process.
The manager’s performance and investment philosophy were the deciding factors for the selection. All of Threadneedle’s global and emerging market equity portfolios have outperformed their benchmark or peer group over three and five year periods as at end of June.
It was also the first manager ever to achieve top rankings in all the seven European countries covered by Germany’s independent rating agency Feri Eurorating.
Threadneedle actively manages €91.2bn of assets as at 30 June. StanLib has $44bn in assets under management for retail and institutional clients.
