Multi-Blend Funds combine investment managers with complementary styles across different asset classes. This increased level of diversification reduces ‘style bias’, an outcome of relying too heavily on a single fund manager, and minimises different types of risk in your portfolio.
The correct mix of asset class diversification for you depends on your investment goals, timeframe and tolerance for risk.
Here’s just one example of how Advance blends the specialist skills of different investment managers to create one multi-blend fund.
|Manager||Manager’s style||Size of companies
|Australian Smaller Companies Multi-Blend Fund||Neutral/Value||Small/Micro|
|Bennelong Australian Equity Partners||Core||Broad|
Growth managers typically seek to invest in stocks with above-average growth tendencies, no matter what the price.
Value managers typically look for 'bargains', or stocks that are below their 'true value'.
Neutral managers typically don't show any bias to growth or value stocks. They can invest in the 'best of both worlds'.
