Liability driven investment
Over the past few years there has been a greater focus on risk with investors more explicitly considering the risk that they are taking relative to their liabilities when reviewing their investment strategies.
Recent developments in financial markets now makes it easier for investors to achieve a closer match to their liabilities. For example, in addition to greater bond allocations, investors can now use bond duration buckets, swaps and other derivatives to achieve this aim. However, this may not be possible or desirable for all investors as other risks may remain and the cost of matching can be high. We help our clients understand the different options in this arena, helping them make more informed decisions.
In addition, regardless of their risk preference, investors are still looking to maximise the investment opportunities available to them. We help our clients understand the different active manager opportunities available and help them to implement them through a range of specialist multi-manager funds.
