We started launching funds in 1980 to help investors who lack the scale or resources to implement their own investment decisions cost-effectively. Today, our approach gives investors unparalleled access to a wide array of regional, global and niche products across asset classes in multiple ways.
1. Pooled funds
The benefits of multi-asset investing
By investing in multi-asset funds, which combine multiple managers from multiple asset classes, you get the benefit of:
- Cost-effective diversification: Access to an extensive array of return sources otherwise impossible to achieve for all but the largest investors.
- Holistic and dynamic management: The portfolio manager makes tactical shifts between asset classes and introduces new ones when appropriate. This delegation helps you to stay focused on the overall picture and not the minutia.
- Simple administration: You no longer have to contract with multiple managers or invest in multiple funds across multiple assets classes in these easy-to-administer funds, leading to reduced legal costs and time efficiencies.
The benefits of multi-manager investing
Many of our funds combine multiple specialist managers with complementary skill sets, which provide the following additional benefits:
- More consistent returns: Combining managers who search for returns in different parts of the market results in more diversified and reliable sources of long-term returns.
- Reduced risk: Diversifying manager risk benchmark-relative performance and allows you to pursue more aggressive managers with a higher expected return for a given level of risk.
- Extra sources of return: We incorporate market valuation views into our portfolio construction decisions, so you can benefit from short-term market opportunities as an additional potential source of return.
2. Bespoke segregated mandates
Even large, sophisticated institutional investors with ample access to internal resources, expertise and experience may find a particular area of their portfolio challenging as they focus on strategic issues and other parts of their portfolio. We can partner with your internal investment teams to work on a particular asset class or group of assets to increase your ability to achieve your investment objectives.
