In the latest Interactive Financial Adviser debate, our panellists from Aviva Investors, Rathbone Unit Trust Management and Standard & Poor's discussed Multi-Manager.
Multi-manager funds have become a cornerstone of many portfolios, providing investors with a straightforward way to diversify risk. This still relies on the manager making the right calls though and recent market volatility has seen many funds reposition themselves, reducing cash exposure in favour of equities. Is this shrewd or premature? And what other opportunities do turbulent market conditions present for the multi-manager sector?
The Multi-manager panel includes:
Peter Fitzgerald - CFA, Senior Portfolio Manager, Aviva Investors
David Coombs - Head of Multi Asset Investments, Rathbone Unit Trust Management
Randal Goldsmith - Director, Standard & Poor's
