Our Multi-asset Capabilities

Historically, traditional balanced solutions (such as 50% in equity and 50% in bonds) performed well, delivering similar returns to equities with half the risk. However, we believe these traditional models are overly concentrated in growth assets. Furthermore, their investment universe tends to be relatively restrictive by focusing on traditional risk premia, exposing these strategies to today’s low bond yield environment. We believe that three investment pillars comprise the most robust way to manage multi-asset portfolios as markets become more complex:

  • Enhanced diversification: Our strategic and dynamic allocation processes apply to a large range of traditional assets, liquid alternatives and illiquid assets
  • Dynamic risk management: We actively manage risk across many dimensions (macroeconomic risks, valuation, extreme risks, illiquidity…)
  • Rigorous ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) integration: We select investments in the traditional space integrating ESG criteria

To achieve its objectives, our responsible macro risk-based investment framework combines the rigour of a systematic approach with the versatility of human judgment.

Our History in Multi-asset

Our Multi-asset Solutions

We manage a range of multi-asset solutions through funds and dedicated mandates.

Multi-asset strategies

A flexible multi-asset investment strategy seeking to deliver consistent long-term total returns by allocating dynamically across traditional and alternative risk premia and through opportunistic trades. We also manage bespoke multi-asset mandates with respect to client risk budgets, investment constraints, investment horizons and performance targets. Our flexible, modular approach uses both internal and third-party strategies to build a precisely tailored long-term portfolio.

Hedging strategies

A range of systematic strategies seeking to protect during equity drawdowns, while aiming to be as cost-efficient as possible. This includes pure option strategies (explicit protection, “tail-hedging”), strategies replicating similar profiles (such as delta-replication strategies) or macro defensive strategies.

Funds of hedge funds

Our external strategies team leverage on Unigestion’s long-standing experience and relationships to select the best liquid alternative managers, according to specific client needs.

In our monthly MiInsights videos, specialists from our Multi-asset team provide quick insights and opinions into key macro and market-related topics.
