Our clients’ objectives are central to the AB Multi-Asset and Hedge Fund Solution team’s approach. We ensure our partnership is consultative, collaborative and backed by innovation to help solve our clients’ needs, collectively.
Whether our clients’ needs are simple or complex, our philosophy is the same—working collaboratively to push boundaries and engineer novel, innovative strategies that can deliver on the challenges of today and for the future.
Collaborating to Innovate
Collaboration is our proving ground for differentiated ideas. We create innovative, impactful multi-asset and alternative solutions through a deep exploration and understanding of client needs.
We meet each challenge with open thinking. Our diverse research perspectives and our ‘go anywhere’ flexibility lead us to new return streams, sophisticated ways to minimize cost and risk, and inspiration for the next generation of strategies designed to deliver on specific investment goals.
Our team’s fluid access to AB’s leading-edge capabilities, research and global resources infuses our strategies with collective insight. These connections sharpen our long-term views, ability to anticipate change and act decisively to amplify impact for our clients.
What We Do
Creating Client-Centric Solutions
Our range of multi-asset and alternative solutions aims to address our clients’ unique needs—ranging from specific return requirements, elevation of diversification, a low tolerance for risk and a desire for income to a focus on sustainable investments.
Strategies offering differentiated return streams and low correlations to traditional markets may foster greater diversification. Our range includes fundamental, systematic and multi-manager alternatives and hedge fund strategies.
We invest across a very broad opportunity set—both traditional and non-traditional. Our range aims to balance different client outcomes across income, sustainability and region-specific strategies.
Our long-term investment strategies for defined contribution (DC) pension savers include a range of diversified, age-appropriate asset-allocation strategies designed to support accumulation and decumulation of retirement savings.
Using a variety of highly customized and innovative risk-management techniques, our range includes strategies designed for investors seeking growth but with a limited tolerance for excess volatility or severe market drawdowns.
By investing in a broad spectrum of return sources, we seek attractive and consistent returns while managing to an appropriate level of risk. Our range aims to meet specific client objectives, typically absolute cash-plus or market-oriented benchmarks.
