Every asset class. One focus. You.
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 1000* 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.

A strong and growing case for multi-asset investing.
Two weeks ago I was updating a client on our multi-asset funds. He repeated a familiar story: “What multi-asset in general needs to make clients really interested again is a 20% fall in the markets”. As I write, the sell-off in equities has been about half that magnitude.
Rather than wait to see if markets fall further before acting, now is a good time to revisit multi-asset funds. Was my client’s confidence in multi-asset in times of market stress justified? And does multi-asset merit a place in a wider portfolio?
