Consistent to the core

For your Centralised Investment Proposition, for meeting regulations and for client suitability - consistency matters to your adviser business.

Consistency is also what drives the investment approach that creates the diversified portfolios for a range of investment solutions, including the Model Portfolio Service from M&G Wealth Investments and the PruFund and the Risk-Managed range from Prudential.

It's a tried and tested approach, delivering consistent results and value for investors since 2004, through some of the the most challenging market events.

The team at the heart of this approach is the M&G Treasury and Investment Office (T&IO) who are responsible for multi-asset portfolios distributed across the businesses of M&G plc. Their decades of expertise in asset allocation flow into every one of the multi-asset funds. And their core investment process underpins the performance of all the investment solutions available through M&G wealth.

A distinct investment approach

Investments managed in a safe pair of hands

With a philosophy and process 20 years in the making, the teams' first-hand experience in dealing with challenging market events like the financial crisis and Brexit, means they can draw on past learnings to help build resilience for the next. Their unrestricted access to resource across M&G and partners worldwide helps to deliver value in portfolios, striving for successful outcomes for investments and ultimately, clients.

A long-term, patient perspective

T&IO, apply a patient long-term perspective across your clients’ multi-asset portfolios. This helps to navigate short-term market fluctuations, staying committed to your clients investment strategies.

Bespoke modelling for robust portfolios

The in-house modelling tool GENESIS is used to map a broad range of future scenarios, to help anticipate changes to interest rates, inflation and the impact of global events. With the aim of creating robust portfolios for clients, no matter how the markets are performing.

Tapping into global expertise

The team's regular interaction with M&G asset managers across 26 countries and external partners worldwide, means they have access to expertise where they need it, when they need it.

Independent decision making

Unlike some others, the investment team doesn’t rely on third parties to make key investment decisions. They're empowered to make their own, enabling them to take advantage of global short term market opportunities quickly and independently.

Customised building blocks

The team creates their own building blocks and look for the best fund managers, or in the case of the Model Portfolio Service (MPS), combines internal vehicles or selects best of breed external managers. This means portfolios can be constructed in a way that maximizes potential returns, whilst staying true to the funds objective.

Globally diversified portfolios

Diversifying portfolios gives your clients the best opportunity to capture returns and shield their investments from market volatility. The teams experience and understanding of a very wide range of asset classes, both in public and private markets, means your client benefits from the effects of a truly globally diversified portfolio.
