Our Investment Process

The Real Asset investment process will invest in a diverse range of assets (including investments in infrastructure, renewables. commodities, inflation linked assets and specialist property) that tend to exhibit lower levels of correlation with equity and bond markets. 
The asset classes and their relative weights are primarily selected on the basis of the consistency of investment returns and the risks related to each asset class. Investments within each asset class will be based on the strength and the stability of the issuer as well as the Investment Adviser’s expectations of their future prospects.
The Fund invests in both growth and defensive assets with the  allocations changing according to the view of the business cycle. A combination of quantitative and qualitative signals leans the Fund into areas of the market that provide the best risk adjusted outcomes.
The process selects securities with:

Real returns – cash flows directly or indirectly linked to inflation and benefit from secular trends 
Strong corporate fundamentals – transparent business models, appropriate leverage and high-quality management 
Dividend sustainability – a stable and/or growing dividend cover for income securities
Valuations – not overpaying for companies

The fund managers aim to ensure there is no single risk or factor that dominates the overall risk of the portfolio. The fund managers construct the portfolio to seek to deliver alternative sources of risk and returns from traditional equities and bonds. As a daily dealing alternative fund, maintaining a high liquid profile is essential. Individual holding weights are determined by both conviction and liquidity.

As a number of real assets provide critical infrastructure and/or essential services their earnings may be less exposed to the economic cycle versus traditional equities. But other subsectors such as commodities are more directly linked to the growth cycle. Some real asset sectors such as listed property companies (REITs) and infrastructure companies can be relatively more sensitive to interest rates.

Key Risks

Past performance does not predict future returns. You may get back less than you originally invested. The Fund may encounter liquidity constraints from time to time. The spread between the price you buy and sell shares will reflect the less liquid nature of the underlying holdings. Outside of normal conditions, the Fund may hold higher levels of cash which may be deposited with several credit counterparties (e.g.international banks). A credit risk arises should one or more of these counterparties be unable to return the deposited cash. Counterparty Risk: any derivative contract, including FX hedging, may be at risk if the counterparty fails.

Disclaimer

This is a marketing communication. Before making an investment, you should read the relevant Prospectus and the Key Investor Information Document (KIID) and/or PRIIP/KID, which provide full product details including investment charges and risks. The issue of units/shares in the Liontrust Multi-Asset Funds may be subject to an initial charge, which will have an impact on the realisable value of the investment, particularly in the short term. Investments should always be considered as long term. For the Multi-Asset Model Portfolios, any performance shown represents model portfolios which are periodically restructured and/or rebalanced. Actual returns may vary from the model returns. There is no certainty the investment objectives of the portfolio will actually be achieved, and no warranty or representation is given to this effect, whether express or implied. The portfolios therefore should be considered as long-term investments.
