What is multi-asset investing?

Multi-asset investing combines investments across multiple asset classes in one portfolio to help investors diversify risks, target specific outcomes, and achieve their long-term goals. Multi-asset funds generally have the flexibility to generate performance by dynamically adjusting both their asset allocation and security selection over time as market conditions change.

Having evolved significantly over the years, multi-asset investing is no longer just about blending equities and bonds, but instead encompasses a wide variety of asset classes, such as commodities, property and derivatives, aiming to help investors reach their financial goals.

What are the benefits of multi-asset investing?

We understand that in a world of increasing uncertainty, it can be difficult for investors to find the investment solution that’s right for them. By investing across all major asset classes, multi-asset investing can:

Help investors navigate uncertain markets

Flexible multi-asset funds can help investors manage, and benefit from, volatility and unexpected events by drawing on a wide range of risk mitigation techniques.

Make investing easier

Multi-asset offers a less complicated, less time-consuming and less expensive route to diversification than doing your own asset allocation in today’s complex financial system.

Help investors reach their investment goals
