Universal-Investment-Gesellschaft mbH is an investment company based in Frankfurt am Main. With more than 143 billion Euro assets under management, 1,000 institutional funds and private label funds and more than 430 employees Universal-Investment is one of the leading German investment firms.[1] Universal-Investment offers primarily the administration of investment funds and securities for institutional investors.

Being also one of the leading providers of private label funds in Germany, the company manages 350 such funds with a total volume of 14.5 billion Euro.[2] Private label funds are investment funds, which are launched together with an independent partner who manages and distributes them. Universal-Investment is one of the biggest administration platforms in Germany for institutional investors offering different fund vehicles as SICAV or UCITS. The company also belongs to the biggest providers of Master-Kapitalanlagegesellschaften (Master-KAG) in Germany.[3]

The company's two parent companies are Berenberg Bank and Bankhaus Lampe, which own 50% of the company each, after having bought out Hauck & Aufhäuser and Landesbank Baden-Württemberg.[4][5]

In September 2013, Universal-Investment launched a joint project with Stratton Street called Stratton Street Ucits UI Renminbi Bond Fund, based on Stratton Street's existing renminbi strategy. The original strategy has been managed by Stratton Street since 2007, and focuses on creditor rather than debtor nations.[6]
