Merian Global Investors is a leading, independent, global asset management company. As an investment-led firm, we strive to deliver investment strategies that are truly differentiated from those available elsewhere. In pursuit of this goal, we are resolutely committed to active portfolio management; we target a high "active share" among our long-only strategies, and our absolute return strategies are expected to deliver on their commitments, while offering return profiles with a low correlation to other absolute return strategies.
Our name was inspired by the remarkable life of the Frankfurt-born, 17th-Century scientist, adventurer and artist, Maria Sibylla Merian. Often described as "the woman who made science beautiful," as a polymath, Merian embodied the multi-faceted approach we take to investment. With no centralised investment process or chief investment officer, our investment teams are free to pursue their own, proven strategies.
