Our Approach

As we navigate a time of unprecedented change, we are committed to making a tangible contribution and impact in the communities where we work and live. This includes where and how we invest through our institutional investment management business, MetLife Investment Management (MIM). MIM aims to deliver risk-adjusted returns for our investors by building tailored portfolio solutions and integrating relevant environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria into our investment decision-making processes.

Institutional investors turn to MIM for its long-established experience in combining a client-centric approach with deep asset class expertise. Focused on managing public fixed income, private capital, and real estate assets, we emphasize listening, strategizing, and constant collaboration, seeking to ensure that our investing decisions create long-term sustainable value for all. As we continue to embrace and evolve our ESG practices, we remain committed to fostering a culture of investing in, and working with, companies whose practices are consistent with our ideals.
