Why opt for a bespoke investment strategy?
Against a backdrop of structural economic change and market conditions that have evolved dramatically, a pooled investment approach may no longer address all your requirements. A bespoke portfolio is shaped to be fit for today and remain flexible for tomorrow, adjusting as new priorities emerge.
Different investors face their own unique challenges. Defined benefit pension schemes, for example, are currently facing the need for additional liquidity, and many are closer to buyout than at any point in their history. Some seek ways to deploy their surplus optimally for their sponsor, while protecting member benefits.
Defined contribution schemes are seeking access to more diverse assets, and are actively considering how to help members manage their savings in retirement most effectively. With the potential for lower market returns, their attention is turning to cost-effective, sustainable, active management to add value.
Endowments and foundations are concerned about the impact of high and persistent inflation both on their charitable works and their investment portfolios.
For all clients, we invest with purpose as we seek to deliver attractive outcomes and help foster a vibrant and healthy world for all.
