Institutional funds
and strategies

We work toward a single purpose: to improve people's financial security.

Put many of the world's leading managers to work for you, by accessing our comprehensive range of funds and strategies.

For investment solutions that are built to deliver your desired outcomes, access our innovative range of multi-asset products to address your portfolio needs.

Each of these funds is an effective investment tool in its own right. When individual funds are carefully combined to create a diversified, outcome-oriented, multi-asset institutional investment program, their true potential is unlocked.

Alternative investments

We apply decades of alternatives investing experience to help build, manage and implement our alternatives strategies.

We've been relentlessly researching many of the world's top money managers in the alternatives space for over 30 years. We work tirelessly to ensure we identify the most appropriate managers for the respective fund investment objective. We then combine them and use dynamic implementation techniques to effectively and efficiently manage targeted strategy exposures. Our approach provides flexibility and highly opportunistic portfolio management.

An array of alternatives fund strategies:

Investment strategies

Designed to improve total portfolio outcomes

Liability-Driven Investing (LDI)

These are multi-manager funds aimed to provide investors with the potential to reduce DB pension funded status volatility through exposure to high quality, mostly corporate bonds which closely match those found in discount curves used to value U.S. pension liabilities.

A liability-driven investment strategy - matching assets to liabilities - is an efficient means to manage the risk of not meeting those obligations.

Responsible investing

We encompass responsible investing into our investment manager evaluation process, portfolio management and advisory services, and through implementing proprietary solutions to meet client needs.
