Multi-Asset Funds

Liontrust offers a broad range of risk-profiled, income generating and specialist funds.

Liontrust Risk Profiled Funds

We manage these funds in a way that aims to control the amount of risk investors are exposed to. Each fund is given a risk target or profile which acts as a guide to how much risk you may be exposed to by investing in that fund. The funds in the lower‑risk profile are designed to be less risky than those in the higher-risk profile.
Liontrust Multi-Asset Active Funds

The Liontrust MA Active Funds are a range of six risk profiled fund of funds targeted at those clients who are looking for an actively managed product that uses the skills and judgment of the underlying managers.

Liontrust Multi-Asset Blended Funds

The Liontrust MA Blended Funds are a range of five risk profiled fund of funds aimed at those clients who are seeking an investment solution that offers a blend of active and passive management to provide the potential for outperformance at a reasonable cost.

Liontrust Multi-Asset Passive Funds

The Liontrust MA Passive Funds are a range of six risk profiled fund of funds targeted at investors willing to accept that their investments will track the performance of the underlying funds’ benchmarks but will not outperform them. The Liontrust MA Passive range is designed to harness the advantages of investing in tracker funds with the investment scope enjoyed by multi-asset managers.

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.

Some of the Funds managed by the Multi-Asset Team have exposure to foreign currencies and may be subject to fluctuations in value due to movements in exchange rates. The majority of the Funds invest 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. Some Funds may have exposure to property via collective investment schemes. Property funds may be more difficult to value objectively so may be incorrectly priced, and may at times be harder to sell. This could lead to reduced liquidity in the Fund. Some also invest in non-mainstream (alternative) assets indirectly through other collective investment schemes. During periods of stressed market conditions non-mainstream (alternative) assets may be difficult to sell at a fair price, which may cause prices to fluctuate more sharply.
