Standard Life lifts Multi-Asset Manager of the Year award

Thursday 9th October 2014

Standard Life Investments has been crowned Multi-Asset Manager of the Year at the Financial News 2014 Awards for Excellence. 
The firm beat off competition from BlackRock Investment Management; Baillie Gifford; Investec Asset Management and Morgan Stanley Alternative Investment Partners, after impressing a judging panel of around 80 industry judges. 
Commenting on the victory, Keith Skeoch, Standard Life Investments CEO said: “These awards stand in firm recognition of Standard Life Investments being a founder of providing multi-asset investment solutions to our clients.” 
“My thanks go to the multi-asset investing team at large who have worked hard to significantly broaden our offering in multi-asset capabilities over the years. We lead the way in the multi-asset space and I am confident that we will continue to produce strong fund performance and innovation for our clients in the future.”
To cap off a good week for the Investment Management firm, Jeremy Allcock has been snapped up as Head of Infrastructure Debt.
Allcock will head up a new Infrastructure Debt team and assume responsibility for investment into the asset class, with further appointments are expected to follow. 
Previously Head of Project Finance (Public Sector) at Nationwide Building Society, the new recruit has 17 years’ experience in the infrastructure funding sector.
Craig MacDonald, Head of Credit at Standard Life Investments commented: “I am very pleased to welcome Jeremy to Standard Life Investments. He has a vast amount of experience within the infrastructure funding sector and his appointment will reinforce and broaden Standard Life Investments’ capabilities in this area.” 
“Jeremy’s appointment demonstrates our commitment to infrastructure investment and reflects client desire to lock in long dated, reliable cash-flows generated by such ‘alternative’ or ‘hard’ assets – an arena in which Standard Life Investments has already established a strong reputation through its credit and real estate teams,” he added.
