What is multi-asset investing?
In simplest terms, multi-asset investing is the process of gaining exposure to a globally diverse mix of asset classes and styles in a single investment portfolio. Multi-asset investing may combine traditional securities, such as equities and bonds, with non-traditional approaches, such as alternative investments.
The term, multi-asset, is relatively new to most companies. So the definitions vary widely. It is vital that investors carefully compare offerings. Some firms define multi-asset simply by the number of asset classes in a portfolio. Others by the types of asset classes, saying that alternatives, such as private equity and hedge funds, are a must. Still others might align multi-asset with fund-of-funds portfolios, or combinations of short-term and long-term approaches. Of course, all types of investments have their own inherent risks and risk levels of asset classes vary. Multi-asset investing does not assure a profit or protect against loss.
