Mirabaud Asset Management has launched a multi-asset strategy called Dynamic Allocation.
The strategy offers flexible management on all traditional asset classes and aims for long-term capital appreciation and protection in case of market losses.
It is run by Pierre Pinel (pictured), CIO for asset allocation products and balanced mandates at the group.
The product’s flexible asset allocation allows the manager to steer away from the benchmark index in a bid to become less correlated to traditional financial markets.
The investment process is based on indicators of financial trends, macroeconomics and prices, and allows short-term tactical allocations to asset classes the manager sees as attractive following unexpected events in financial markets.
Pinel said the last two years have shown that equity markets have become more influenced by politics than by fundamentals so a different approach to investing is now required.
"Markets tend to move fast in shorter cycles and often finish at the same level they started at but with highly volatile periods in between,” he said.
“A passive approach will ultimately result in disappointing returns. The goal of any dynamic multi-asset portfolio today is to capture these intermediate trends in order to compound returns".
