Multi-asset investing is, in layman’s terms, obtaining the appropriate exposure to an internationally diversified array of asset categories and strategies, blending conventional securities such as stocks or fixed income instruments with alternatives such as commodities.
Fundamentally, multi-asset investing has two operational objectives, managing risks and generating profits, thus ensuring the potential for growth concurrent with downside protection in a risk-adjusted investment portfolio.
Specificity is a regular characteristic of multi-asset investing and can be a diversifying factor regardless of accurate allocation. As an example, multi-asset portfolios can hold growth equities, focused on producing increased returns or capital appreciation, all in accordance with the specific results that the investor is attempting to achieve.
Aaron Brett considers that such an investment strategy depends on three characteristics to support it:
- Asset allocation that is focused on achieving the results that the investor aims for;
- Superior exposure that includes a comprehensive set of assets, investment styles and high performing companies;
- Active portfolio and risk management;
Over time the returns of various asset classes fluctuate greatly, and studies have proven that asset allocation choices generally produce the majority of an investment portfolio’s performance.
Aaron Brett’s solutions for asset allocation are founded on a basis of high confidence, opting for the right assets at the most opportune time and increased diversification.
We employ a series of strategies that have been tested over time and have been proven to deliver results, serving the interest and satisfying the financial requirements of our globally diversified range of private and institutional clients.
As a company with an international outlook, Aaron Brett believes in addressing the issue of how investment and individual decisions affect the world – thus making sure that the impact we make is positive and sustainable.
In the simplest terms, ESG investing (environmental, social and governance) means assessing the sustainability and practices of a company alongside the conventional contributors to the bottom line.
Aside from the long-term benefits that ESG investing can have on the environment and one’s portfolio, Aaron Brett considers that uniting financial goals with responsible values ideally reflects our commitment to our clients’ well-being.
Aaron Brett aligns its ESG approach with the Principles for Responsible Investment and has created its proprietary ESG Board, responsible for establishing objectives, evaluating performance, assessing the ethical nature of targeted companies’ practices, and advancing our expertise.
