MA Blended Intermediate Fund

John Husselbee

The Fund

The Fund, which was launched in 2001 and is in the IA Volatility Managed sector, seeks to achieve capital growth and income with a median level of volatility, having a risk profile of 4 in a range from 1 (lowest) to 7 (highest). The underlying funds in the portfolio invest globally (including in emerging markets) across asset classes and financial instruments. The underlying funds will be a blend of active and passive funds. Active funds will be selected over passive funds where the investment team believes the potential returns from active funds outweigh any additional cost. The Fund typically has a balanced exposure to higher risk assets and lower risk assets compared to other funds in the Liontrust MA Blended Funds range that have a higher or lower risk profile.

The Multi-Asset Process

The process is designed to target the outcome expected by investors in terms of the level of risk, as measured by volatility, of each model portfolio and to maximise the return for each portfolio while still targeting the investors’ level of risk. These two objectives are pursued through a quantitative and qualitative approach with five key stages to the process: the strategic asset allocation, followed by the tactical asset allocation, fund selection, portfolio construction, and monitoring and review.

Key Risks 

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Do remember that the value of an investment and the income generated from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed, therefore, you may not get back the amount originally invested and potentially risk total loss of capital.


The fund invests in Fixed Income securities indirectly through other collective investment schemes. The value of fixed income securities will fall if the issuer is unable to repay its debt or has its credit rating reduced. Generally, the higher the perceived credit risk of the issuer, the higher the rate of interest. Bond markets may be subject to reduced liquidity.


The ACD does not use a benchmark to measure the Fund’s performance. However, the performance of the Fund can be assessed against other funds in the Investment Association’s Volatility Managed sector. Although this 'sector' contains funds that are flexible, they will not have exactly the same characteristics (objectives, investment policies and levels of risk, for example) and therefore do not provide an exact like-for-like basis for comparison.
