Legal & General Multi-Asset Target Return Fund

Stay nimble and roll with the punches

The L&G Multi-Asset Target Return Fund is designed for investors seeking a fund with a nimble investment approach and reduced reliance on market direction. This is a fund that can roll with the market punches and adapt to reduce their impact. The fund accesses uncorrelated sources of returns, from alternative strategies to tactical opportunities, in order to hit four risk and return targets.

Reasons to invest

  • Enhanced risk-managed returns over traditional equity investments
  • Low correlation to core asset classes
  • Nimble risk management approach, particularly in relation to equity drawdowns

Asset Management Market Study

In response to the Asset Management Market Study, we have (i) updated our fund investment objectives and policies so they are clearer and more useful for investors and (ii) explained why and how our funds use particular benchmarks or, if they do not use a benchmark, how investors should assess the performance of a fund.

Updated KIIDs and prospectuses are available for the UK authorised funds. The fact sheets with the new disclosures will be available from September 2019. For further information on the Asset Management Market Study, please download our frequently asked questions.

The way we manage the funds, and the risk profiles associated with our funds, has not changed. Full details of the clarifications we’ve made to our funds, please download our UK fund updates.
