Skandia Investment Management


Skandia Investment Management is the Skandia UK Group's asset management company, dedicated to providing investment management solutions. A key component of the business is having one of the largest teams of investment professionals in the UK who focus solely on selecting, blending and monitoring managers to provide world class portfolios.

The business was established by recruiting a highly experienced and proven team of asset management professionals. Chief Executive, Jamie MacLeod who joined Skandia in 2002 and launched the business in early 2003, had previously built two significant investment businesses in his 18 year fund management career.

The business has grown rapidly in its first three years, with strong business inflows from a broad range of professional intermediaries. It has already become established as one of the major providers of multi-manager solutions in the UK financial adviser market.

Skandia Property Funds, a range of funds offering a choice of 'bricks and mortar' or 'global property securities'.

Investing in commercial property has become increasingly popular among investors over the past few years as more people appreciate the attractions of a relatively high and stable income, along with strong capital growth potential offered by property investment. This has been further boosted by a growing understanding of the benefits of diversification when including property within a traditional share and bond portfolio.

To meet this growing interest, Skandia launched two new funds, the Skandia Property Fund, a direct UK property fund run by ING Real Estate Investment Management (UK Funds) Limited, part of the ING Real Estate network, the world’s largest property asset manager* and the Skandia Global Property Securities (LaSalle) Fund, a global property securities fund run by LaSalle Investment Management (Securities), one of the world’s leading real estate securities investment managers.

For those seeking to invest directly with Skandia Investment Management Skandia also offer the Skandia Single Strategy Funds – designed for professional investment advisers who make both asset allocation and investment selection decisions.

The rapid growth in the market for investment solutions is also helping to sustain the demand for high quality funds focused on a specific geographical area or asset class.

Skandia American Fund is sub-advised by T. Rowe Price. This world class investment manager is available to UK retail investors exclusively through Skandia Investment Management.
