Aviva Investors launches multi-strategy capability range

Aviva Investors has launched a multi-strategy capability range, the business’s first major initiative under chief executive Euan Munro.

The Aviva Investors Multi-Strategy Target Return capability aims to deliver a return of five per cent per annum above the Bank of England base rate over any rolling three-year period by investing in a globally diversified multi-strategy portfolio. It aims to reach its target return whilst limiting the volatility of returns compared with an investment in global equities.
 
Munro 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.
 
On a day-to-day basis, the Aviva Investors Multi-Strategy Target Return capability is run by Peter Fitzgerald, head of multi-assets, and Dan James, global head of rates.
 
Munro says: “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.”
 
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. The capability seeks multi-year timeframe opportunities identified by research and analysis, while managing overall portfolio risk over both the long term and the short term.
