Delivering outstanding investment outcomes is at our heart

Since we started life back in 1849 as the investment management arm of AMP Society, our commitment to delivering outstanding investment outcomes for our clients has been at the heart of everything we do.

Experience has taught us what matters most

With more than 160 years’ experience managing clients’ money, we’ve learnt what matters most – that is, to build the trust of our clients. We’ve always believed that some of the best investment opportunities are created by truly understanding our clients’ needs. It’s this philosophy that explains the range of ‘firsts’ we’ve achieved on behalf of our clients, and why we’ve been at the forefront of developing contemporary investment solutions.

The whole is greater than the sum

We believe in expert investment teams coming together to discover the best possible insights and investment opportunities for our clients. With more than $140 billion in assets under management as at 31 March 2014, AMP Capital’s story is more about our clients’ successes than our own.
