UK Equity team
Our UK Equity funds are designed to provide strong total returns over the longer term. Our Growth funds aim to primarily achieve this from capital growth, investing in high quality companies with a strong track record of creating value for shareholders by expanding in a prudent and sustainable manner. In contrast, the primary aim of our UK Equity Income funds is to provide a regular income that will grow over the longer term, while also providing capital growth.
Santander Asset Management UK has an experienced UK Equity Investment team with skilled Portfolio Managers focused on achieving income, growth or both through their respective investment portfolios.
The team manages a range of portfolios for retail and institutional clients and follows an active but prudent approach, aiming to achieve above average performance over the medium to long term. The Portfolio Managers regularly use a quantitative screen with a proven track record to look for the most interesting companies and are supported by a team of in-house analysts who provide detailed, fundamental company research.
