Our purpose at Santander Asset Management UK (SAM UK) is clear, from retail clients to global institutions, we are here to deliver investment solutions that evolve according to their needs.
Our strong heritage dates back to 1971, with Banco Santander's first asset management company, Gesbansander, and distribution of Banserfond, its first equity fund, and later incorpation of its first fixed-income fund. Since then, Santander Asset Management has expanded internationally, focusing primarily on Europe and Latin America. In the UK the strategic acquisition of the Abbey National Bank, and merger of several local asset managers, formed Santander Asset Management UK Ltd in 2007.
We are a global asset manager with extensive local knowledge in Europe and Latin America, working as a single firm in 10 major markets and with 50 years of experience.
As an international asset manager, we have global expertise and a local perspective.

We provide simple, innovative and transparent service, with one objective in mind: to deliver a comprehensive range of products to our customers with the right balance between risk and return. Our solutions reflect our deep understanding of what is required to help different types of client achieve their investment goals regardless of market conditions.
