For more kinds of life

We provide a range of multi-asset solutions combining different mixes of equities and bonds. These are designed for different investment goals, time horizons and risk appetite. 

The key feature that all our multi-asset solutions have in common is a strategic approach to asset allocation, meaning they target a certain level of risk and reward over the long term.

As an adviser, you can also enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing Vanguard is a global leader in providing multi-asset solutions for investors.

Save time on portfolio construction to focus on your clients 

Our research suggests clients greatly value the uniquely human skills advisers offer, as well as their emotional support and guidance through sometimes difficult market conditions. 

At the same time, advised clients tend to favour automation for portfolio related tasks such as asset allocation and rebalancing3.

This is the beauty of our multi-asset solutions. Once you ve decided which one suits your client s goals and appetite for risk best , you can leave some or all of the portfolio tasks to us, and focus on what they really want from you; your advice and guidance.

Important risk information

The value of investments, and the income from them, may fall or rise and investors may get back less than they invested.

Some funds invest in emerging markets which can be more volatile than more established markets. As a result the value of your investment may rise or fall.

Investments in smaller companies may be more volatile than investments in well-established blue chip companies.

ETF shares can be bought or sold only through a broker. Investing in ETFs entails stockbroker commission and a bid- offer spread which should be considered fully before investing.

Funds investing in fixed interest securities carry the risk of default on repayment and erosion of the capital value of your investment and the level of income may fluctuate. Movements in interest rates are likely to affect the capital value of fixed interest securities. Corporate bonds may provide higher yields but as such may carry greater credit risk increasing the risk of default on repayment and erosion of the capital value of your investment. The level of income may fluctuate and movements in interest rates are likely to affect the capital value of bonds.

The Funds may use derivatives in order to reduce risk or cost and/or generate extra income or growth. The use of derivatives could increase or reduce exposure to underlying assets and result in greater fluctuations of the Fund s net asset value. A derivative is a financial contract whose value is based on the value of a financial asset (such as a share, bond, or currency) or a market index.
