Mapping out multi asset investing – the risks and opportunities

03 Jul, 2024 | Return|

In conversation with Square Mile’s Jock Glover, Chris Ellis Thomas, Portfolio Manager and Lead Strategist at BlackRock, discusses the BlackRock MyMap range – a range of actively managed, passive multi-asset funds. Chris takes us under the bonnet of the MyMap range; looking at why robust asset allocation is so important for a truly diversified investment approach, how politics plays its part in the risk profile of the portfolios and why record numbers of applications for new businesses in the US could indicate a brighter horizon for investors.
