Now more than ever, clients need solutions to guide them through the current choppy markets and beyond. 

Designed to meet the evolving needs of UK pension clients, the Governed Range offers diversification across a wide range of asset classes and robust active management, providing portfolio resilience and flexibility.  

"The range is built exclusively with UK pension savers in mind and offers solutions across broad demographic and risk profiles ranging from the most adventurous to the very cautious", says Ryan Medlock, Senior Investment Development Manager, at Royal London. 

As one of the largest multi-asset solutions in the market, with over £50 billion assets under management. Responsible investment, which includes ESG integration and demonstrable stewardship, is embedded throughout the entire range.  

"We've chosen to bake responsible investment into the Governed Range, so that more customers can benefit from this approach to investing, not just those who make an active decision to move into something with an ESG label," he says. 

Independent oversight and impartial governance have always been integral to the Governed Range and the role of the Investment Advisory Committee is to monitor and review each portfolio and ensure it is continuing to meet its objectives. 

Meanwhile, the collaboration between the investment solutions team within Royal London and RLAM has enabled the two teams to work together to review strategic asset allocation, execute tactical asset allocation as well as strive to innovate. 

Medlock explains that collaboration has been key to launching new asset classes like the commodities component in the Governed Range, for example. This has helped to provide additional diversification benefits and a hedge against inflation, key for savers in the current market environment.
