Vincent Ropers, co-manager of TB Wise Multi-Asset Growth fund, joins us to discuss a range of key topics impacting investor portfolios. Vincent starts by giving an update on the fund and asset allocation changes in the last six months, including opportunities in fixed income and floating rate notes.

We then turn to inflation and the threat of recession, with Vincent sharing four ways the team is protecting the portfolio: defensive assets, quality of assets, valuations and idiosyncratic strategies. The interview wraps with a closer look to the fund’s use of investment trusts and why the exposure has been going up in recent months.

The content is not intended to be a personal recommendation to buy or sell any fund or trust, or to adopt a particular investment strategy. However, the knowledge that professional analysts have analysed a fund or trust in depth before assigning them a rating can be a valuable additional filter for anyone looking to make their own decisions. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future returns. Market and exchange-rate movements may cause the value of investments to go down as well as up. Yields will fluctuate and so income from investments is variable and not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Tax treatment depends of your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. If you are unsure about the suitability of any investment you should seek professional advice. Whilst FundCalibre provides product information, guidance and fund research we cannot know which of these products or funds, if any, are suitable for your particular circumstances and must leave that judgement to you. Before you make any investment decision, make sure you’re comfortable and fully understand the risks.
