Featured Topics


Our research was based on FE Analytics’ Risk-Targeted Multi-Asset Solutions (RTMAS) and includes other prominent multi-asset fund families not included in the RTMAS universe.

Multi-Asset Scoring

The Multi-Asset Ratings are designed to demonstrate whether a fund family achieves adequate returns for clients given its cost and the risk borne by the investor.

Benchmarking Funds

This year, we are focusing on the usage of the No-Brainer portfolio as our main benchmarking tool.

Fund Costs

We’ve found once again that fees within the multi-asset space remain high, eating into net returns that would otherwise directly benefit clients.

Ranking Criteria

We have adapted our ranking criteria this year to reflect a number of factors that are key not only to high quality returns, but also to the psychological process.
