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.

Direct targeting of client specific goals
We support a spectrum of multi-asset strategies to target client goals and risk-reward requirements. These include diversified assets, absolute return, tactical asset allocation and traditional balanced solutions – all of which can be customised to meet specific client needs.
Consistency across the economic cycle
With flexibility to invest across an exceptionally broad range of asset classes, geographies and instruments our strategies can adapt to, and anticipate, changes in the economic climate, delivering a more consistent outcome.
A smoother investment journey
Our genuinely diversified portfolios spread risk to deliver a more predictable outcome, while our forward-looking risk management aims to provide a smoother investment journey.
Investing responsibly in Diversified Assets
We analyse the risks and opportunities, including those influenced by ESG factors, for every investment that we make.
In the Diversified Assets team our focus is on providing genuine diversification. We do this by identifying and capturing the best long-term opportunities across a broad range of asset classes. Typically, we access alternative asset classes through listed investment companies and traditional asset classes through specialist teams within ASI. Our tailored approach considers ESG factors within asset classes as well as in the asset allocation process. It is supported by our centralised Stewardship and ESG Investment team.
All clients invest to create a better future for themselves and their families. This may be to fund their lifestyle or for their own retirement. Now, they can invest to promote a better future for our planet and for subsequent generations, by embracing ESG. Our Diversified Assets approach is designed to target that better future for our clients and to help towards building a sustainable future for generations to come.
