Why invest with Old Mutual Multi-Managers?

Your clients trust you to ensure no stone is unturned in finding strong investments that will help to secure their future. With Old Mutual Multi-Managers, you can be sure that we're doing extensive research in the quest to find the best managers to manage your clients' money. Instead of investing in individual shares, multi-managers select top asset managers who are best placed to make the best investment decisions for clients. Our investment experts spend 40% of their time on research and monitoring among a universe of approximately 100 managers. This means that your client gets the benefit of more than just one asset manager investing on their behalf. We undertake rigorous research, not only into performance, but also the strategy, philosophy and individual strengths of asset managers.  For your clients, we offer two categories of funds for individual investors, Unit Trusts and Life Funds. While both offer investments suitable for investors across the risk spectrum, there are slight differences between the categories. 

In this way, your clients benefit from reduced risk due to a diverse blend of the best asset managers each pursuing a different strategy and tactics under different market conditions.
