Investing in our cultural wealth.

Merian Global Investors is immensely proud to be the sole principal partner of the Shakespeare’s Globe Summer Season. In this way, consistent with our desire to challenge received wisdom – much as Maria Merian did in her time – we are supporting the work of a truly ground-breaking, international cultural and educational organisation, with which we share many values.

Shakespeare’s Globe celebrates Shakespeare’s transformative impact on the world with a diverse programme of work across two iconic theatres: the Globe Theatre and the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse. Performances, tours and an extensive education and research programme take place all year round to make Shakespeare accessible for all. From February 2019, the Globe will begin a year-long cycle of history plays which will continue throughout the summer season, exploring what it means to be British as the UK edges closer to its exit from the EU.

About our partnership

Shakespeare’s Globe is one of the world’s most iconic theatres, with a truly inspiring international cultural and educational programme. As a theatre company, Shakespeare’s Globe is the embodiment of inclusivity, recognising the vital role all teams play in achieving success, an ethos we celebrate and practice at Merian Global Investors, where there is no primacy between investment, distribution and infrastructure. We’re delighted to help support the important work of Shakespeare’s Globe, while also benefiting from the opportunity to use its unique profile to raise awareness of our brand among its global audience.
