Aviva strengthens outcome investing capabilities

John DeweyAviva’s global asset management wing, Aviva Investors, has made inroads to bulking up its outcome investment capabilities with the appointment of John Dewey.

Dewey, who joins from BlackRock’s investment strategy division, will focus on building outcome-oriented investment strategies for institutional clients.

Working with Aviva Investors’ fixed income, multi asset and alternative teams, Dewey will be responsible for designing investment analysis and management approaches.

Outcome investing, or unconstrained investing, allows asset managers to be benchmark agnostic, giving them greater freedom to invest across various asset classes and regions to achieve results, without having to be concerned with beating a benchmark.

Aviva Investors has assets under management of £246 billion (€326 billion).
