Strategic Asset Allocation

Our strategic asset allocations are designed to provide the optimal framework for fund managers to develop capital growth and income fund solutions to match a given customer risk profile.

Created through using a combination of: 

  • Our stochastic modelling engine to project future economic performance and optimise candidate allocations based on a given set of objectives and constraints; and

  • Our investment research expertise to integrate ESG factors and align SAAs with implementable fund options.

Our SAAs enable advised and non advised customers to benefit from our Institutional grade investment and modelling capability, helping to deliver better customer outcomes...
