    Multi-asset

    Multi-asset

    Insight's flagship multi-asset strategy aims to deliver attractive returns with less volatility than equities, by applying two broad principles.

    • Access to a broad opportunity set: We combine traditional market-based sources of return and strategies less reliant on market direction in aiming to deliver consistent returns through economic cycles.
    • Dynamically managed asset allocation: We seek exposure only where we see value and swiftly switch exposures as opportunities develop.

    We bring these principles together within a multi-dimensional risk framework.
