Multi-asset funds

Different investors have different needs. For this reason, M&G multi-asset funds are structured to generate specific results, with particular attention to investor needs. The M&G Multi Asset team adopts a distinctive approach since more than 15 years, based on a robust evaluation framework in combination with behavioural finance elements.

The value of investments and the income from them will rise and fall. This will cause the fund price, as well as any income paid by the fund, to fall as well as rise. There is no guarantee the funds will achieve their objective, and you may not get back the amount you originally invested.

M&G Prudent Allocation Fund

Neutral position: Fixed interest* Equities Other

Mainly convertibles

* Excluding cash and cash equivalents.

The pie charts above show the neutral positions of the funds if all assets were trading at their 'fair value'. This can be thought of as a strategic asset allocation. In a ideal world, when all assets were trading at their 'fair value', then neutrality would be how a fund was positioned, given its strategy and risk profile. However, assets seldom trade at fair value, so the actual allocation of each fund may not match the neutral position.

The fund may be suitable for investors:

  • Who are seeking to combine relatively uncorrelated assets in a single portfolio and delegate asset allocation decisions to experienced fund managers.
  • Who have a medium appetite for risk and would like an even balance between ‘risky’ and ‘safe’ assets, in ‘normal’ market conditions.
  • Who would like a fund with a high degree of flexibility to manage risk and return by varying asset allocations materially in response to rapidly changing market conditions.

Key facts

  • A flexible, global multi-asset fund that is able to take long or short positions within a range of asset classes such as equities, fixed income and currencies.
  • Aims to deliver positive total returns in any three-year period from a flexibly managed portfolio of global assets. There is no guarantee that the fund will achieve a positive return over this, or any other, period and investors may not recoup the original amount they invested.
  • The managers estimate that the fund has the potential to deliver returns of between 5% and 10% per annum, with volatility between 5% and 12%.*

M&G Dynamic Allocation Fund

Neutral position: Fixed interest* Equities Other

Mainly convertibles

* Excluding cash and cash equivalents.

The pie charts above show the neutral positions of the funds if all assets were trading at their 'fair value'. This can be thought of as a strategic asset allocation. In a ideal world, when all assets were trading at their 'fair value', then neutrality would be how a fund was positioned, given its strategy and risk profile. However, assets seldom trade at fair value, so the actual allocation of each fund may not match the neutral position.

The fund may be suitable for investors:

  • Who are seeking to cautiously grow capital but wish to limit equity exposure to manage volatility.
  • Who are willing to take some risk with their capital in order to potentially generate better returns than those available from cash in a bank account and mainstream government bonds, over the medium term.
  • Who are comfortable with the use of derivative strategies for risk management purposes.

Key facts

  • Aims to deliver a positive total return (the combination of income and growth of capital) over any three-year period through an investment approach which seeks to manage volatility.
  • A flexible, global multi-asset fund that is able to take long or short positions within a range of asset classes such as equities, fixed income and currencies.
  • The managers estimate that the fund has the potential to deliver returns between 3% and 6% per annum with volatility between 3% and 7% per annum, over the medium term*. However, this is not guaranteed and may be revised in future.

M&G Income Allocation Fund

Neutral position: Fixed interest* Equities Other

† Mainly convertibles

* Excluding cash and cash equivalents.

The pie charts above show the neutral positions of the funds if all assets were trading at their 'fair value'. This can be thought of as a strategic asset allocation. In a ideal world, when all assets were trading at their 'fair value', then neutrality would be how a fund was positioned, given its strategy and risk profile. However, assets seldom trade at fair value, so the actual allocation of each fund may not match the neutral position.

The fund may be suitable for investors:

  • Who are seeking a regular income along with some capital growth, over the long term.
  • Who are considering their long-term income requirements, ongoing financial obligations and ambitions, and understand the need to grow the income stream over time in order to meet the rising cost of living.
  • Who would like to manage risk by combining a globally diversified range of income-generating assets in a single portfolio.

Key facts

  • Aims to generate a high and rising level of income over time through investment in a diversified range of assets. Subject to this, the fund aims to provide capital growth over the long term.
  • Has the potential to deliver an estimated gross annual yield of around 4%*, distributed monthly.
  • Income distributed is income produced by the assets held in the portfolio, and is never drawn from capital. The fund manager believes it is vital not to over-reach for income in very high-yielding assets at the potential expense of capital growth.
