Our multi-asset investors bring deep experience to every strategy they manage. They apply skill in fundamental, macro, quantitative, and technical analysis, and they tap into the broad resources of Wellington Management, including specialists in equities, bonds, currencies, and commodities.

CREATIVITY, RIGOR, AND COLLABORATION

We provide an entrepreneurial environment, encouraging our investment professionals to seek out new directions for research and new strategies to help meet our clients’ needs. We create macro frameworks that help identify potential opportunities at a given point in time, and then we explore those opportunities from multiple angles.
