Multi-Asset Investing

Solutions investing across multiple asset classes to achieve an optimal balance of risk and return

Clients’ objectives can rarely be met by investing in a single asset class. Instead, a portfolio that actively invests across multiple asset classes has more sources of potential return, can better adapt to changing market conditions and can diversify portfolio risk for a better overall experience.

Our multi-asset experts are supported by over 1,000* asset class specialists around the world, maintaining deep and continuous insight into equities, fixed income, real estate and alternatives. Our collaborative team ethos ensures insight is fully and effectively shared so we can create outcome-focused portfolios comprising the most compelling opportunities we can find across markets and asset classes.
