The world of investment is fast-moving and ever-changing. There are many asset classes to choose from. Each of them has their own characteristics and can deliver different returns over any given time period.
You can potentially improve performance and reduce risk by spreading your money across a variety of asset classes. However, a simple passive mix of equities and bonds is unlikely to provide the diversification some people need to meet their investment goals over the short and long-term. Depending on your risk appetite, you may also wish to consider introducing alternatives, such as real estate or commodities.
Our Multi-Asset Solutions allocate actively between, and within, these different asset classes with the aim of adding value over time. This could be helpful in today’s lower return environment, which is expected to persist for some time.
We have built our products around our clients' needs. From strategies that aim to beat inflation to funds that focus on delivering a diverse income stream, we deliver outcomes to suit a variety of investment goals. Please note: not all products are available in every market.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated. The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amounts originally invested. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of any overseas investments to rise or fall.
Alternatives can be more volatile than shares and bonds, and it may be harder to cash in the investment at short notice.
