- Responsible Investment
We recognise that the management of environmental and social responsibilities is subject to many factors, and take into account the particular circumstances, industries and locations in which the companies operate.
We've produced guidelines on responsible investment to explain how we evaluate the environmental and social policies of the companies in which we are (or might be) an investor.

The benefits of investing in real estate are compelling. Over the long term, the returns from real estate have a low correlation with equities and bonds. This means that real estate can help to spread risk and create diversified investment portfolios. In addition, real estate offers relatively stable income in the form of rent paid by tenants.
Standard Life Investments is at the forefront of multi-asset investing, developing innovative products that aim to deliver targeted returns within tight risk boundaries. As a result, increasing numbers of investors trust us with their investments.
