Built to serve our clients

LGIM America (LGIMA) was founded in 2006 and specializes in fixed income, liability driven investment (LDI) solutions and index capabilities for the US institutional market.* We offer a range of strategies to help our clients manage their investment objectives including investment grade fixed income, which can range from market-based alpha-oriented strategies to those that are designed to be more liability-centric, derivative overlays, and indexed solutions.

Our solutions-focused culture is geared toward customization for our clients. As a firm, LGIMA has professional resources dedicated to insuring that our credit portfolios are structured in a risk-conscious manner, but can still have the ability to produce excess returns over an appropriate, sometimes custom, benchmark. Our index fund management offering extends well beyond the standard market cap weighted indices. We have the capability to manage index funds against various equity indices. 

As of December 31, 2020, LGIM America managed over $241 billion in assets. Our clients include pension plans, foundations & endowments, unions, and public funds.

With deep and experienced investment teams built on a culture of commitment to client service, investment excellence, and custom solutions, we strive to solve clients’ toughest challenges.

The global enterprise: Legal & General

In 1836, six lawyers met in a coffee shop in London to establish an insurance company for the legal community. Later made available to the general public, it was named Legal & General Life Assurance Society. Over the years, the name was shortened to Legal & General. In 1970, Legal & General Investment Management was established to manage assets for pension funds, institutional, and private clients. The company expanded to the US in 2006 to establish Legal & General Investment Management America.
