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.
At T. Rowe Price we're solely focused on providing investment management and long-term results for you and your clients. Founded in 1937, we're an independent investment management firm managing over £830 billion in assets. We service clients in 49 countries across Europe, the Americas, Asia and the Middle East and opened our UK office in 1979, going on to launch our OEIC Fund Range in 2016.
WisdomTree was founded in 2006 with a passion for creating better ways to invest, by being the first investment manager to weight by dividends. We have never accepted the status quo and we think our investors shouldn't either.
Since 2014, our European business has grown in terms of our product set and AUM. In April 2018, we completed the acquisition of ETF Securities' exchange-traded commodities, currencies and short-and-leveraged business, including the world's first gold ETP.
Today we're the biggest independent ETP provider globally and offer one of the most innovative ranges of ETPs, covering commodities, currencies, equities and fixed income.
