Diverse opportunities drive consistency

Different asset classes respond differently to changes in the economic and business cycle, hence the investment returns from individual asset classes can vary significantly over time and differ markedly from those of other asset classes. By investing in a mix of assets and actively reviewing and changing our portfolios, in order to participate in investment opportunities while minimising volatility, we aim to deliver a smoother investment experience for investors.

  1. Potential to receive attractive levels of growth and/or income with less volatility than equities.
  2. Active allocation of risk, when managed efficiently, can provide investors with more return per unit of risk
  3. Uncorrelated sources of return can deliver important diversification benefits compared to single asset class portfolios
  4. Provides investors with an effective, ‘one stop shop’ investment solution.
