The primary focus of Old Mutual Multi-Managers is ensuring that all our portfolios consistently outperform inflation. We are convinced that this is the single most important consideration for any investor, whether individual, corporate, or retirement fund.
Then, with that key objective in place, our investment philosophy builds on this 'inflation plus' approach by clearly defining each portfolio's target objectives and then working to deliver precisely on these objectives.
Defining these target objectives ensures that our investment teams and asset managers have clear targets to work towards, which keeps them 100% focused and prevents them from being distracted by market shifts or investor sentiment.
Our investment philosophy is underpinned by three integrated pillars of:
- a long-term investment horizon;
- risk diversification across asset classes and asset managers, and
- a valuation-driven approach that informs all our asset manager and asset selection decisions.
