Multi Asset Boutique

Providing systematic and fundamental strategies to protect and grow investors’ assets in their chosen markets.

How we can help you

Markets are neither perfectly efficient nor completely inefficient. Our institutional and intermediary clients face the decision whether to use a discretionary or systematic approach varying by asset class. Vontobel’s Multi Asset boutique combines the best of both worlds to help clients meet and exceed their absolute and benchmark targets.

Active management creates value only when profits exceed costs. Such opportunities exist, but differ across time and in different segments of global financial markets.

We constantly screen for such opportunities and combine active alpha strategies with systematic risk premium strategies in order to outperform.

Equities may brave war in Ukraine if global economy stays solid

The war in Ukraine, as troubling as it is, may yet prove a relatively minor event for equity markets, according to Frank Häusler, Vontobel’s Chief Investment Strategist.
