A multi-asset fund targeting stable returns

Market volatility can have a negative effect on the value of an investor’s portfolio. As an objective-based strategy and multi-asset solution, the Schroder Real Return (Managed Fund) aims to deliver positive outcomes by providing stable returns and a lower risk of major drawdowns. Rather than comparing returns to peers or indices, we place emphasis on wealth preservation, as this can be as material to investment outcomes as the target return. Reaching such objectives requires astute and active asset allocation across a broad investment universe and different market cycles.

The strategy is diversified across equities, fixed income and alternative assets predominantly accessed by public markets, which aims to provide investors with high liquidity.Because of its focus on downside risk management the fund is most likely suited for investors approaching or in retirement.
