Multi-asset funds

Multi-asset funds are able to invest across the investment landscape and may include equities, bonds and cash. This provides a greater degree of diversification than investing in a single asset class. The benefits of diversification are:

  • Investments are spread over a broad range of strategies, styles, sectors and regions
  • Can help cushion the occasional shocks that come with investing in a single asset class
  • Enhances the potential for investing in the best-performing asset class and reduce the impact of the worst-performing asset class

Many investors look to multi-asset funds to provide a lower-risk investment than a pure equity fund, but with greater prospects for growth than a pure bond fund.

BlackRock has built a family of multi-asset funds to give investors the breadth they need to meet their specific needs. We also give investors the choice between actively managed multi-asset funds and our range of Consensus Funds, five independently risk-rated, core asset allocation portfolios invested in BlackRock's index suite.
