Risk-based portfolios

Investors all have different investment objectives and different views on the amount of risk they are willing to take in achieving them. The problem for many financial advisers is finding a simple, cost-effective way to meet their clients’ differing return goals within their risk tolerance levels.

Our highly successful MyFolio range for UK investors utilises a comprehensive portfolio optimisation process to identify the asset classes we want to invest in over the long term. Our multi-asset investing team then takes tactical asset allocation decisions in order to take advantage of shorter-term investment opportunities. Finally, we have an in-house fund solutions team that is dedicated to finding the best available funds in the market so we can capture the skills of some of the world’s most competent investment managers.
