The classic 60/40 portfolio has been the gold standard of asset and wealth management for a long time, but today’s economic environment requires investors to look beyond traditional asset allocation techniques. Investment managers approach evolved significantly as they developed multi-asset portfolios to seek appealing risk adjusted returns in a low/negative rates environment. Multi-asset strategies have been growing in relevance and popularity since the financial crisis, however building and implementing an effective strategic asset allocation, while choosing top performing managers is clearly a challenging task.

We will dive into the day-to-day of an investment manager, exploring what it is like to manage a multi-asset portfolio for private and institutional investors within a global organization.
