Risk management

Ascencia Steady Growth Portfolios use a pro-active approach to evaluating risk.

Steady Growth delivering a smoother investment experience is our key objective. Accordingly our portfolio solution embeds volatility management in the investment process. Steady Growth seeks to mitigate meaningful declines, when traditional diversification is undermined due to increased correlation between asset classes in times of market stress.

The objective of our forward-looking, dynamic asset allocation approach is to anticipate periods of significant market volatility, caused by increases in correlation and to adjust our models to insulate the core of your client’s investment, thus guiding investors towards steadier returns.

Steady Growth Portfolios investment philosophy

Modern investment themes, with a macro-economic overlay, are incorporated into the portfolio design. The product’s agility enhances long-term returns.

Asset Allocation

During the asset allocation process the investment management committee form a strategic and tactical view. This is followed by a screening process to identify the most appropriate instruments to implement this view. We then put this asset allocation through our risk model to optimize a series of portfolios with different thresholds to equity content.

Steady Growth Portfolios

Steady Growth is suited to clients seeking capital growth over the longer term and who are prepared to accept elevated levels of portfolio volatility.

The portfolios are multi-asset strategies that employ strategic and tactical asset allocation methodologies, typically with a higher weighting to equities.

Portfolio construction is principally via exchange traded funds that offer both the benefits of liquidity and lower cost.
