Standard Life Investments’ arrival in Asia was high-impact. From sports sponsorships to local television appearances, Standard Life Investments has assiduously raised its visibility in the region in its drive to capture a slice of Asia’s fabled wealth pool. Selectors have taken note of this commitment to create a global absolute return solution at a scale that complements its patent ambition.

Standard Life Investments’ 60-plus strong team has shown laudable discipline by reducing volatility and avoiding major market drawdowns, both factors that unnerve cash-heavy investors in Asia. Indeed, the key to Standard Life Investments’ success has been its ability to assure clients during market turbulence – no mean feat in a region where traditionally poor client-directed market timing and excessively short horizons remain obstacles to meeting long-term wealth preservation needs.

Standard Life Investments offers its clients a myriad of content rapidly distributed across mediums, a multi-lingual platform and frequent face time with key decision makers to aid in the management of portfolio assets.

Accordingly, fund selectors from Asia’s private banks have selected Standard Life Investments as the Best Fund Provider – Liquid Alternative in 2016.
