A 140-year long term perspective

As the investment arm of the 8th largest US life insurance company*, we have the ability and resources to focus on the long-term and execute consistently for our clients.  Our mindset is long-term, due to the type of liabilities we help our parent manage and also from Securian Financial's 140-year history. The firm is based in St. Paul, Minnesota with roots going back to 1880.

Securian Asset Management was built with a risk management focus because we invest our AA-rated** parent’s General Account capital in all our products. 

With over $49 billion in AUM, we’re small enough to be nimble and large enough to have all the resources to consistently meet our clients’ needs.  Each of our investment strategies exploits niche market opportunities within our risk management framework, delivering a differentiated solution designed to meet our clients’ needs for the long-term. 

Reliably Improving the Risk/Return Ratio: Equity Stabilization

Institutional investors face a balancing act between two equally important needs: achieving robust long-term returns while avoiding the painful consequences of near-term drawdowns. The intense market volatility of the past few months highlights the difficulty in maintaining this balance. Securian Asset Management has developed a sophisticated risk management approach which is suitable for all institutional investors that invest in risky asset classes but require stable returns.

Creating value for our clients

An exceptional client experience also takes open communication and superior service. Our research, portfolio management and client service teams all work together to effectively deliver personalized service with the goal of exceeding client expectations.

We encourage interaction between clients and our investment professionals, fostering direct contact between clients and the people managing their assets.
