Sarasin Asset Management (SAM) is a specialist investment firm dedicated to managing the international investment requirements of US clients, wherever they reside.
Registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as an investment advisor since 2003 and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the UK, we are one of the very few London based asset managers able to meet the complex investment management and reporting requirements for US clients.
We help clients future-proof their wealth through sustainable investments, taking a wider view of our role as asset managers: for us responsibility is longer-term, integrity runs deeper, accountability is broader and innovation more substantial – in what we do and how we do it.
What we invest in matters. To grow assets for the future, we believe we have a duty to engage with our world in responsible ways – ways that deliver economic progress as well as protect the longer-term interests of future generations.
This is why we are active investors and have developed our dynamic investment approach:
- We seek to identify long-term themes that look set to shape the investment landscape
- We undertake fundamental company analysis, with stewardship principles embedded in the process; we support and engage with management boards whose thinking is closely aligned to that of our own
- We construct portfolios to meet our clients’ investment objectives, balancing thorough research with strong governance and high levels of transparency
