Information on Metzler Asset Management

We manage our Equity portfolios and aim to achieve long-term, risk-adjusted outperformance versus the benchmark or capital appreciation. Metzler Asset Management offers the management of different investment styles considering various market capitalization segments and regions. The most important decision-making level is the fundamental bottom-up stock selection with the inclusion of sustainability aspects.

Our Fixed Income product range covers strategies including corporate bonds, covered bonds and government bonds based on a combination of top-down and bottom-up. Portfolios are measured both in absolute terms and relative to a selected benchmark. The focus of our product range is on international government bond mandates, Euro-denominated aggregate and corporate mandates. For the latter we consider sustainability criteria.

With our Fundamental Multi Asset Strategies, we pursue an active and discretionary investment approach. In doing so, we rely on a broadly diversified strategic asset allocation (SAA) that is tailored as closely as possible to the individual risk-return profile of the investor.

Our Absolute Return & Capital Preservation strategies are strictly rule-based. While capital preservation concepts are exclusively "long only" strategies that are used to dynamically manage market risk exposure according to risk budget guidelines, absolute return strategies can include "long" and "short" strategies that target excess returns independent of market movements. As part of our capital preservation strategies, we offer a risk overlay concept for clients with an asset allocation to be hedged.

Metzler also provides Real Estate Asset Advisory Services for indirect real estate investments.

Our Pension Management develops solutions for all pension systems. In addition to the financing vehicles CTA, Metzler Pensionsfonds AG and Metzler Sozialpartner Pensionsfonds AG (straight defined-contribution schemes, currently founded), we offer conceptual design and advice on capital investment strategies.

With the administration of "master funds" (the so-called German Master-KVG), Metzler Asset Management offers the consolidated administration of accounts/segments.
