Aviva Investors launches multi-strategy capability range

Wednesday 9th July 2014

Aviva Investors has this month announced the launch of its multi-strategy capability range. 
The Aviva Investors Multi-Strategy Target Return capability aims to deliver a return of 5% per annum above the Bank of England base rate over any rolling three-year period by investing in a globally diversified multi-strategy portfolio. 
The creation of the capability range is the business's first major initiative under Chief Executive Euan Munro, who joined in January 2014. Euan, a pioneer of global multi-asset investing, is a strategic adviser to the Multi-Strategy capability and chairs the Strategic Investment Group, a company-wide forum that provides the portfolio's managers with investment ideas.
Euan Munro, Chief Executive of Aviva Investors, said: “No matter who they are, investors want simple and specific outcomes from their financial products. I have spent twenty years speaking with clients and found four financial goals common to everyone. Whether you are a pension scheme, corporation, financial adviser or individual saver, what matters is achieving reliable fund growth, securing a reliable income stream, obtaining a return that exceeds inflation or increases the likelihood that you will meet a specific future financial liability.”
“The Multi-Strategy range reflects our renewed focus as a business. We aim to deliver simple and specific outcomes that clients will value, ignoring traditional benchmarks and instead combining our considerable expertise in real estate, fixed income and equities together into compelling solutions,” he added.
To achieve this target return, the portfolio's managers have the freedom to invest across different assets and countries, from company shares, fixed income securities and deposits to other regulated funds. 
This creative approach of the Multi-Strategy capability focuses on three key tenets:
Opportunities are more likely to exist at a horizon of three years than over shorter horizons.
Looking both across and within asset classes allows for the greatest opportunity set.
Specialists are more likely to spot opportunities than generalists.
