AMP Capital believes asset allocation is the most crucial step in the management of diversified portfolios, as it determines the risk profile of a portfolio and its total return potential.
We believe that risk can be reduced by combining asset classes that have a low correlation with each other. Success comes from understanding where risk is taken in a portfolio, and ensuring customers are appropriately compensated for that risk.
Once the asset allocation mix has been determined, there are many ways a fund can gain exposure to the underlying asset classes. Our team will consider factors such as passive versus active, appointing single or multiple managers, gaining exposure via ETFs and derivatives; whatever is best to provide the most compelling investment opportunities.
