Ambition & strategy

Ambition

As the stand-alone asset manager of NN Group, our ambition is simple: to deliver reliable investment performance to our partners in a responsible manner.

NN Investment Partners engages with customers to help them meet their financial goals. By responsibly managing their assets through actively managed income-driven products and advice-embedded solutions, we create value for all our stakeholders and the society in which we operate.

  • Clients come first in everything we do. NN IP provides clients with global, high-quality and reliable investment management and services, tailored to local customs and needs.
  • Our organization meets client needs through a number of skills-based investment teams, each with its own investment process and entrepreneurial drive. These are complemented by a broad network of offices that partner with clients to understand their specific needs, often creating local products and services. The company benefits from global thinking while striving to meet local needs.
  • The firm offers employees an environment that attracts, develops and engages the best talent.
  • Active management in pursuit of attractive investment returns, strong risk management, and pioneering use of environmental, social and governance overlays across the company’s entire range are common factors of all NN IP’s investment strategies.
  • Our original in-house research produces an information advantage that helps our portfolio managers identify unrecognised value and attractive investment opportunities ahead of consensus.
  • We aim to further expand our multi-distribution network, strengthen our presence in key markets and get closer to the end customer.
  • We strive to deliver innovative and responsible investment management to pension funds, insurers and retail clients, with a focus on retirement and insurance products and services.

Strategy

Today’s business, tomorrow’s growth

With its broad scope and local presence, NN Investment Partners can offer clients investment products and solutions across asset classes, geographies and styles. NN IP’s business is focused around three key asset classes:

  • Fixed Income: building on our heritage as a spread specialist
  • Multi-Asset: expanding on our successful franchise by developing next-generation products and solutions
  • Equity Specialisms: capitalising on a selected set of high alpha strategies covering specific subsets of the equity markets

To achieve the investment excellence that clients demand of us, our investment organisation in the Netherlands will take on a more adaptive, forward-looking approach, one that combines human and machine intelligence. Behavioural analysis, responsible investing, data and artificial intelligence will be our tools for finding new sources of return. We will invest in multi asset, fixed income solutions, specialized fixed income, specialized equity and automated investing, the key areas where we already have strength and credibility. At the same time, we will build on our potential in new growth areas.

Additionally, as an early pioneer in environmental, social and governance issues, NN IP integrates its extensive experience in Sustainable and Impact Investing across its entire product range.

NN Investment Partners pursues growth in all these areas by providing new products and services designed with the client’s needs in mind, whether they are institutional investors or end-consumers. Our goal is to provide excellent products, focused distribution and efficient operations geared to meet client needs.
