Multi-asset funds best placed to hit client targets: BNP Paribas

Added 3rd June 2016

In a low yielding and high risk world multi-asset funds are best placed to meet the investment outcomes clients require, says Colin Graham, head of active asset allocation, multi asset solutions for BNP Paribas Investment Partners.

Currently individual assets are not providing investors with the required mix of long term growth and income at an acceptable level of short term volatility in capital values, Graham says.

Therefore, achieving a client's required level of income, growth and risk requires dynamic and flexible allocation decisions which specialist investment firms are best placed to provide.

Graham, who leads a team of strategists, economists and analysts, as well as a dedicated group of portfolio managers responsible for managing mutual funds, says financial advisers should stay focused on the outcome their clients want to achieve.
