Multi-Manager

Multi Manager People

Today’s investor enjoys the choice from thousands of available funds. Whilst that’s great news, making sense of the options can be a daunting task. We see our job as making investing easier.

How do we do this?

We work by selecting what we believe to be the very best investment talent from right across the industry and combining them together into well-balanced portfolios.

We believe that our approach combined with the advantages inherent in Multi-Manager investing offers a host of benefits.

Structural ‘true’ diversification

Perhaps the most important principle of successful investment. We invest across asset classes, geographies, management companies and investment styles.

Whole of market

Why restrict your opportunity set? We’re independent fund ‘selectors’ and aren’t constrained by ‘buy-lists’.

Proven performers

Price matters but value is key. Over the long-term our funds have consistently delivered performance whilst at the same time offsetting the impact of investment and financial advice costs.

Actively managed

There’s nothing passive about how we invest. We actively adjust asset allocation, select funds, build portfolios and manage risk.

Ease and efficiency

A one stop-portfolio ‘service’. Single fund structure reduces administrative burden for clients.

Columbia Threadneedle Multi-Manager People ESG

ESG investing has moved mainstream but unlike other principle-based investments, ESG is not a defined investment style. The Columbia Threadneedle Multi-Manager approach is that ESG is something all active managers should be considering when it comes to investing.

Based on certain criteria and approaches, we will allocate every fund we own or could own an ESG score or award level to help determine the fund approach and focus ESG. Helping to provide peace of mind for the client that the ESG metrics of underlying holdings have been checked.
