Investment is a two-sided coin – on one side you have return, the potential to see your money grow alongside the companies and economies it is invested in. On the other side is risk, or the potential to see your capital shrink as a result of investing decisions.
While performance tends to capture the most headlines, risk should command our attention too. In fact, professional investors are so concerned by risk that they have developed multiple strategies to manage it – and it makes sense that paying attention to how much you might lose from an investment can be as important as how much you may gain.
We have previously discussed how a multi-manager approach to investing can be a lower risk, low cost way for investors to access a balanced equity portfolio. However, risk management comes in many guises and while all multi-managers seek to manage risk, some go further than others.
