Making it easier for you to diversify your investment and spread risk
With so many different reasons to invest, and a bewildering array of funds and asset classes to choose from, how can you and your adviser pick out investments that are appropriate and are most likely to deliver the kind of returns you’re looking for?
At Architas, we believe it doesn’t make sense to put all your eggs in one basket.
What is a multi-manager fund of funds?
A typical, single-manager investment fund may invest in one kind of asset, sector, or geographical area. For example, one fund might invest only in shares in UK companies. Another might invest in companies in emerging markets such as India or Brazil.
Our multi-manager fund of funds are different; instead of focusing on just one type of investment, they invest in lots of other single-focus funds – we call these underlying funds. Every underlying fund we select is run by a specialist fund manager who knows their market inside out. And we make it our business to know everything about them.
Think of us as a specialist in specialists.
What is a multi-asset fund of funds?
As well as being multi-manager, most of our funds are multi-asset. This means they spread your investment across several types of asset classes, such as cash, equities, bonds, property and alternatives. That’s important because different asset classes tend to behave differently in different market conditions.
What are the benefits?
Choosing our multi-manager, multi-asset funds makes it easy to diversify your investment, which will potentially give it:
- greater resilience to market shifts
- a more balanced exposure to risk
- a more consistent return
