Why multi-manager investing?

What is a multi-manager fund of funds?

At AXA IM Select, multi-manager funds are our sole focus. The three funds we offer are multi-manager and are designed to meet different investment goals depending on your attitude to risk.

A typical, single-manager investment fund may invest in one kind of asset, sector, or geographical area. For example, one fund might invest only in shares in Asian companies. Another might invest in companies in emerging markets such as India or Brazil.

Our multi-manager funds are different; instead of focusing on just one type of investment, they invest in lots of other single-focus funds – we call these underlying funds. Every underlying fund we select is run by a specialist fund manager who knows the market inside out.

What is a multi-asset fund of funds?

As well as being multi-manager, our funds may also be multi-asset. This means they spread your investments across several types of asset classes, such as cash, equities, bonds, property and alternatives. This can be important as different asset classes tend to behave differently in different market conditions.

Making it easier for you to diversify your clients’ investments and spread risk

Clients are often looking for long-term wealth creation but also with stability. With such a large range of funds and asset classes to choose from, choosing investments that are appropriate and most likely to deliver optimal returns can be difficult.

At AXA IM Select, we believe it is sensible not to put all your eggs in one basket.

By investing in an AXA IM Select multi-manager fund, you can be confident that your clients’ investments are spread across a range of different sectors, geographies and in some cases asset classes, and benefit from the skills of some of the world’s best-known fund managers.

What are the benefits? 

Choosing one of our multi-manager funds for your clients makes it easy to diversify their investments, which will potentially give:

Greater stability in response to market shifts

A more balanced exposure to risk

A more consistent return
