Asset Class Mandates

Diversification is an important dimension of an institutional portfolio, but managing each asset class allocation takes specialized expertise and resources.

For more than four decades, we’ve been providing expert investment advice, cultivating deep manager networks, and analyzing robust data across traditional and alternative asset classes, including private equity, venture capital, hedge funds, real assets, public investments, private credit, co-investments, and impact investments.

This service model works well for clients who want to leverage our investment skill and deep manager networks in one or more specific asset classes. And as with our total portfolio solutions, we can manage asset class mandates on either a discretionary or a non-discretionary basis.

Investors are facing a challenging period for earning what they spend and achieving adequate portfolio diversification. With most DM sovereign bond yields near or below zero, expected returns for bonds are at all-time lows and diversification qualities are constrained. In this edition of VantagePoint, we evaluate defense and diversification options to identify a modern approach to diversification in this low-yield era.
