The multi asset class Yale Model has long been hailed in the US as representing the very best that portfolio theory has to offer, placing Yale consistently in the top percentile for investment performance. Yet it has not been widely adopted, and outside the US remains largely unrecognised. Multi Asset Class Investment Strategy shows how unthinking mistrust of so-called 'alternative' assets, and an inability validly to compare results across asset classes on any traditional risk-adjusted basis, has led to institutional investors, particularly pension funds, missing out on the out-performance which a multi asset class approach can offer. Guy Fraser-Sampson demonstrates how the returns of different assets classes (hedge funds, private equity, property, etc) may validly be compared with those of quoted equity markets. He argues for an adoption of MAC investing (his own multi asset class investment model), and demonstrates how this can improve investment performance across a range of portfolios. He gives guidance on each asset class, including historic performance figures (many of which have not previously been publicly available). The book also offers the author's own unique approach to many issues for institutional investors, including risk, liquidity and Total Funding.
