It has been another challenging quarter for multi-asset investors with both equity and bond markets for the most part continuing their declines. High inflation prints, aggressive central bank policy tightening, and fears of recession are driving extreme market volatility. However, the Retirement portfolios have weathered the storm relatively well. Whilst we haven’t been able to protect investors from all the losses, the portfolios managed to outperform the peer group benchmark and internal benchmark and remain well ahead on a relative basis over the 12 months to 30 September 2022.
While the portfolios’ capital component of returns has been volatile, the yield component has continued to deliver a level of stability for retirees. From an income perspective, the portfolio has delivered in excess of the 4% income target through the cycle (3-5 years). Pleasingly, income was sourced from a wide range of strategies and asset classes, from equities to infrastructure, emerging market debt, and option premia.
