Insight Investment is a leading asset manager focused on designing investment solutions to meet its clients’ needs.

Founded in 2002, Insight’s collaborative approach has delivered both investment performance and growth in assets under management. Insight manages assets across its core liability-driven investment, risk management, full-spectrum fixed income, currency, and absolute return capabilities. Insight Investment is owned by BNY Mellon, a global leader in investment management and investment services.

As a leading fixed income specialist asset manager, Insight Investments aims to deliver consistent and repeatable performance by focusing on key specializations - fixed income, insurance asset management, risk management strategies including liability-driven investment (LDI), currency risk management and absolute return and multi-asset. Headquartered in London (with other key offices in New York, Boston, San Francisco, Dublin, Frankfurt, Manchester, Sydney, and Tokyo), the business employs over 1,100 people including 285-plus investment professionals.

With just under $1 trillion under management and sitting within the Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (BNY Mellon) Insight leverages the unique combination of achieving the high-performing, risk-adjusted returns of a boutique with the financial stability of a large, global financial institution. It enjoys investment decision-making autonomy, operating with an independent management structure and boards. As part of BNY Mellon’s multi-boutique structure, Insight has the backing of a sound global financial institution for which asset management is a core strategic priority.

The business has a clear mission and purpose to offer investors a different approach to achieving their investment goals; one that prioritizes the certainty of meeting their chosen objectives. Since its launch in 2002, Insight’s partnership approach has delivered an impressive record of growing assets under management based on client advocacy, making it a leading force in investment management. Insight is ranked number one in Edelman’s Asset Management Brand Index 2024 as the manager whose brand is most highly regarded in the institutional marketplace.

Insight has a global network of operations in the UK, Ireland, Germany, US, Japan, and Australia.
