Last week, in this series of posts concerning investment options for expats in Asia, we talked about the importance of diversity in wealth management. Diversifying investments greatly helps reduce the chances of an investor’s portfolio from losing value by spreading the risk over a number of different investments. This week we will look more closely at one investment option which has diversity as its foundation – the Multi Asset Portfolio often commonly referred to as a MAP.
What is a Multi Asset Portfolio?
A Multi Asset Portfolio is an investment fund made up of deposits from many individual investors. The money is then invested by a professional fund manager across a whole range of diverse asset classes to provide a return which is then paid out to each investor according to the size of the original investment. A Multi Asset Portfolio could, for instance, be holding equities, quality bonds, high yield bonds, property shares, hedge funds, commodities and cash. The fund manager will adjust the ratio of investments to get the best return within the parameters set out for the fund.
Different MAPs can offer different risk profiles to suit the needs of individual investors. Someone with a low tolerance to risk can opt for a very cautious fund whereas an investor who is looking for higher returns can opt for a more adventurous MAP where the fund manager’s brief is to maximise profit.
Why are Multi Asset Portfolios a good idea?
It is well established that diversity in investment makes sense, but most people do not have the time, knowledge or the inclination to follow investments closely. By investing in a MAP the hard work is completed by the experts. It is the fund manager’s job to ensure that not only is the risk diversified to protect capital but also to ensure that the money is invested effectively to provide growth and a good return for the investors. Good, reputable funds can provide a far higher return than money held on bank deposit. The trick is to choose a well-managed fund with a history of producing real capital growth.
What can Infinity Offer?
Infinity has an exclusive Asian partnership with Bestinvest, a regular winner of multiple awards for outstanding investment management, including being named the Financial Times Wealth Manager of the Year.
