Multi Asset: what patterns of market returns can tell us
What’s really happening in the global economy? Looking at the cross-asset pattern of returns may help us find out.
The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and an investor may get back less than the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future results.

Designed for investors with a conservative approach to investing and who prefer to take a small amount of risk with the aim of achieving modest or relatively stable returns. They accept some short-term periods of fluctuation in value.
Designed for relatively cautious investors who want to achieve a reasonable return and are prepared to accept risk in doing so. Typically, these portfolios will exhibit relatively modest yet frequent fluctuations in value.
Designed for investors with a balanced attitude to risk – those who do not seek risky investments but do not avoid them either. These types of investors are prepared to accept fluctuations in the value of their investments.
Designed for investors who are very comfortable with investment risk, aim for high long-term investment returns and do not overly worry about periods of poorer performance in the short-to-medium term.

Ordinarily, these portfolios can be subject to the full extent and frequency of stock market fluctuations.
Each MyFolio fund aims for the highest possible total return achievable for your chosen risk level. To achieve this, our process contains four key steps.
We seek to create the most of efficient mix of assets to help deliver the possible return for each risk level. We work closely with our colleagues with expertise in long-term asset class research, portfolio optimisation and risk modelling to achieve this.
We can tactically tilt the long-term asset mix to take advantage of short-term investment opportunities. In doing so, we make modest increases in our exposure to those in which we have less conviction. The Index, Index Sustainable and Sustainable range do not incorporate tactical asset allocation.
We then select the optimal blend of individual funds that go into each MyFolio portfolio. This involves quantitative analysis of over 8,700 funds followed by quantitative analysis to identify each fund’s potential for risk-adjusted performance. Next, we select the best combination of funds for each risk level.
Finally, we ensure the MyFolio Funds continue to deliver the appropriate risk and return outcomes for investors. To achieve this, we regularly rebalance each portfolio reviews. We quickly replace any fund that is no longer suitable.
The responsibility for the MyFolio funds lies across experienced portfolio managers, who are all part of the Multi-Manager Strategies Team.
