Capabilities in focus
Multi-asset strategies can provide valuable diversification to investors’ portfolios by investing in a broad spectrum of asset classes. These can include traditional portfolio staples such as equities, bonds and property, but also alternatives such as absolute return, private equity and emerging-market debt. To obtain further diversification, these strategies can include less well-known alternatives, including aircraft leasing, peer-to-peer lending and renewable infrastructure.
Absolute-return strategies aim to deliver positive returns regardless of market conditions. They may do this by investing in a wide range of asset classes and by employing unconventional investment approaches such as short-selling, whereby shares in a company are borrowed rather than bought, then sold with the aim of buying them back more cheaply when the price has fallen. Other approaches employed by an absolute-return fund may include arbitrage, derivatives, leverage and unconventional assets.
