Since the financial crisis of 2008, it has been harder for our clients to achieve the right balance in their investments. The return profiles of equities, bonds and property are so similar that they could make some investment goals more challenging to meet.
Absolute return funds generally seek to deliver positive returns over the longer-term, no matter what the stockmarket is doing, rather than trying to beat a particular index. Absolute return funds may help to protect investments from market falls and create genuine differentiation, and ultimately, they aim to provide diversification to portfolios.
As a global firm we offer absolute return products run by our own fund managers alongside a handpicked selection of funds from highly-experienced external investment specialists. Please note: not all products are available in every market.
Over the past 20 years we have built a large absolute return fund range. We offer growth, diversification and inflation protection options. Please note: you may require financial advice prior to investing in some funds.
