Core growth

Core growth means investing in our best ideas while paying more regard to benchmarks and volatility than we do for other strategies. The portfolios are our most diversified.

What are core growth’s characteristics?

Our equity-only core portfolios typically hold more than 100 investments. Our multi-asset ones can hold over 200. We construct both with an emphasis on quality and diversity in terms of the number of holdings, style and, where relevant, asset types. We manage equity-only portfolios within a tracking error range against a benchmark. Our multi-asset portfolios have stated volatility targets as a secondary objective alongside investment goals. These seek to outperform cash returns significantly.

How do we invest in core growth?

Individual equity teams manage the core equity portfolios, combining regional portfolios for those that have a global benchmark. This modular approach lends itself to client-tailored allocations where desired. 

Multi-asset growth portfolios are managed by a dedicated team whose remit includes stocks, bonds commodities, insurance-linked bonds, property, structured finance, infrastructure and more.
