Benefit from expert insights and the flexibility to invest in select opportunities across all asset classes with our range of multi-asset funds.

How do multi-asset strategies work?

Instead of putting all your capital in a single asset class or type of investment, a multi-asset fund selects from equities, fixed income, infrastructure and more. Experts running the fund will use a mix of assets to aim for certain goals for their multi-asset strategy. These could be related to a particular level of return, less volatility, less risk, more diversification or a combination of all these.

Rapid change is the new normal

More than ever, global markets are susceptible to impacts from a rapidly changing economic environment. These shifts can change the investment returns and outlook across all asset classes. So, it makes sense to consider choosing a multi-asset fund managed by investment experts with a broader view and the flexibility to change allocations to drive returns and manage risk.

The reassurance of real returns

With their ability to pull levers of risk and return across all asset classes, multi-asset strategies can offer the diversification to secure a steady income for their investors. Some funds will aim to deliver a target return above inflation so your real income from investments is assured.

The multi-tasker of your investment portfolio

Investing in multi-asset strategies can help you meet a number of goals within a single solution. They can work well as a flexible solution to help your wealth grow as markets change and have different impacts across asset classes.

Multi-asset funds are likely to be appropriate when you’re seeking capital growth, capital preservation and income for all or some components of your portfolio. They’re suited to investors with a medium to high risk and return profile. They are unlikely to be suitable if you’re looking for a capital guarantee for your wealth or when you have a short investment timeframe.
