Neuberger Berman's multi-asset class ("MAC") Investment Teams investment philosophy for multi-asset class mandates is grounded in the belief that a multi-dimensional combination of asset allocation tools and perspectives is important, both in the portfolio construction process and in the pursuit of relative value opportunities across markets, asset classes and geographies. These dimensions include incorporating a risk-balanced approach to the establishment of a Strategic Asset Allocation, exploiting time horizon diversification in expressing tactical views, and utilizing both active management approaches and passive replication when appropriate in building the underlying sleeves of a multi-asset class portfolio. Neuberger Berman's approach to managing multi-asset class mandates combines risk-balanced strategic asset allocation and tactical asset allocation capabilities, with implementation across Neuberger Berman's stable of portfolio management teams, utilizing both fundamental and quantitative approaches.
