Adaptative allocation

Our portfolios are conceived as core investments. Our Multi-Asset strategists and fund managers aim to add value by actively allocating between asset classes according to market opportunities. We combine medium-term strategic vision with short-term tactical adaptation. In making decisions, we integrate fundamental research on asset classes and analysis of market behavior, supported by our quantitative research. Seeking to build the optimal portfolio, we draw on all Candriam's research expertise and our managers' selection of bonds, equities and alternative strategies.
