Clients’ objectives are central to the AB Multi-Asset and Hedge Fund Solution team’s approach. We have developed products backed by innovation that help solve needs collectively.

Our Philosophy

Solving, Collectively to Deliver Modern Outcomes

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.

Defying Boundaries

We meet each challenge with open thinking. Our diverse research perspectives and our ‘go anywhere’ flexibility leads us to opportunities for 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.

Leveraging Connections

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 in the best interest of 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 the potential for differentiated return streams and low correlations to traditional markets that 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.

The value of an investment can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount they invested. Capital is at risk. There can be no assurance that any investment objectives will be achieved.

How We Do It

An Unconventional Approach

We’re free to exploit and integrate return streams from across the investment universe to address specific, consistent risk-management and performance goals—all underpinned by a robust, ongoing market and risk-monitoring process.
