BNP AM

The sustainable investor for a changing world

Sustainable multi-asset strategy

Key features

A sustainable target allocation strategy combining “best in class” and “thematic” investments

Flexible asset allocation between equities and bonds following a quantamental approach

Diversification across asset classes, regions and sectors

Investment philosophy 

We believe sustainable investment can add superior long-term value by capturing new opportunities in sustainable development.

Such opportunities can be harvested through a multi-asset universe with manager diversification, a focus on valuations and macroeconomic fundamentals, and advanced quantitative techniques.

Investment process

Our Sustainable Multi-Asset strategy follows a disciplined four-step process:

  • Research and idea generation: Combination of fundamental views and quantitative inputs
  • Model portfolio construction: Optimisation process to maximize risk-return characteristics
  • Enhanced model portfolio: Customised tactical asset allocation through specific trades and overlay
  • Final portfolio and execution: Allocation “bricks” among an extensive universe including active funds and passive instruments, both in-house and external
