About Us


Insight Investment is a global investment manager that designs solutions for institutional investors focused on the ultimate outcome, not returns alone. We aim to maximize certainty and build resilience, not just minimize risk and manage volatility. In partnership with clients and their advisers, we build solutions drawing on four interlinked capabilities: liquidity and cash management, risk management, return generation and liability-driven investment. 

At the core of our business is a strong appreciation and understanding of a client’s needs, particularly those of local governments. We have over 25 years of experience managing portfolios for clients in the public sector, with assets totaling $131.5bn*. Our dedicated Public Sector Group (PSG) extends the resources of public entities’ treasury staff to build customized investment portfolios specifically tailored to their individual needs and objectives. As a founding signatory of the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in 2006, we have always sought to invest responsibly, which is integrated into our investment process. 

Many public entities are limited to investing in conservative fixed income securities. By actively managing customized portfolios, we can offer each client the greatest opportunity to add value to their portfolio net of fees, within their set guidelines. This can include:

  • preserving capital
  • providing sufficient liquidity
  • achieving a market rate of return

Our fixed income capabilities rest on the experience of 118 fixed income investment professionals, with expertise ranging across cash portfolios, cashflow-driven investment (CDI) solutions, and the efficient management of liquid assets to support wider objectives*.
