Expert team

Our team-based investment approach draws on a consistent philosophy of rigorous and forward-looking investing, as well as an extensive investment research capability.

A multi-asset fund with a dynamic asset allocation approach to adapt to changing market conditions.

The investment team manages exposures to different asset classes based on a forward-looking valuation process, to provide both diversification and risk control with the aim of delivering steady income for investors.

The Schroder Multi-Asset Income Fund’s investment universe is relatively unconstrained to allow it the flexibility to effectively and efficiently allocate to and select those assets that, in combination, maximise the opportunities to achieve its return target while maintaining the benefits of diversification in all market environments. We take an approach that continuously evaluates the potential cyclical and strategic risks and opportunities of our asset allocation to help investors achieve their investment goals as markets inevitably rise and fall.

About the Schroder Multi-Asset Income Fund

The Schroder Multi-Asset Income Fund aims to help clients meet their portfolio goals by targeting investments that deliver stable income and build capital while seeking to avoid major drawdowns when equity markets fall. The Fund targets a return of 3% to 4% above the RBA’s target cash rate before fees over rolling 3-year periods while minimising the risk of a negative return over a 12-month period.
