Types of investment​


We offer clients an extensive range of multi-asset solutions designed to meet a broad range of investment objectives. These include outcome-oriented diversified growth strategies and specialist risk-managed vehicles with scope for alignment to individual risk profiles through to traditional balanced mandates.

Our multi-asset team manage all portfolios using a consistent, tried and tested active investment approach built on both strategic and tactical asset allocation, risk budgeting and the selection of individual portfolio components.

Where multi-asset portfolios invest in other internal Columbia Threadneedle capabilities, they benefit from active bottom-up security selection undertaken by the specialist investment team.

Why choose Columbia Threadneedle for multi-asset?

Our multi-asset experts are at the heart of the firm’s distinctive investment framework, which is built around our specialist investment teams. While each investment team follows its own unique process and style, ideas are shared, debated and challenged rigorously across asset classes and geographies.

Our specialist multi-asset team takes a collaborative approach to investment, tapping into this rich source of collective intellectual capital to ensure that every multi-asset portfolio benefits from the very best ideas from across the firm.

Key members of the multi-asset team are also part of the Asset Allocation Strategy Group, which consists of senior investment professionals with extensive experience across asset classes and investment markets. The Group contributes strategic analysis, tactical asset allocation, fundamental research and risk intelligence to the multi-asset investment process. As betterinformed investors, we are therefore well-positioned to deliver better investment outcomes for clients.
