In the latest Interactive Financial Adviser debate, our panelists from Aberdeen Asset Management, S&P Capital IQ and Scottish Widows Investment Partnership discussed Multi Manager.
With increased uncertainty in the markets, driven by a mixture of political dithering and low global growth expectations, asset allocation continues to play a key role in the decision-making process for clients. The best performing asset class in 2011 was UK gilts, and yet the most widely backed sector for last year was emerging markets. What is the right mix of assets for 2012 and why are multi-asset funds the answer to many clients' investment dilemmas?
The Multi Manager panel included:
Scott Spencer - Senior Portfolio Manager, Aberdeen Multi-Manager team, Aberdeen Asset Management
Randal Goldsmith - Director, Fund Research, S&P Capital IQ
Simon Wood - Investment Director, SWIP Multi-Manager Fund
