Global Multi-Asset


For more than 25 years, we have managed our clients’ capital to realise their long-term investment goals. We do this by managing both risk and return expectations.

Combining alternatives with traditional asset classes, we use a highly-disciplined, quantitative approach to find solutions that meet our clients risk, return and liquidity profiles.

At QIC, we recognise predictability of outcomes are what clients value most. Multi-asset investments provide access to superior risk-adjusted returns and the flexibility to respond to changing markets. 


What we believe

Managing client outcomes is our only objective. Long-term thinking is what matters. We believe investment decisions cannot be made in isolation. Therefore, we take a whole-of-portfolio view, considering the assets we manage and even those that we don’t.

Our investment beliefs have been developed over time from deep research and extensive experience. These beliefs guide our decision making, our priorities and our processes. 

Our valuation models focus on the long-term investment opportunities.  This allows us to access a broader range of risk factors, including illiquidity.

We look through asset classes to underlying risk factors. In our view, diversifying across a broad range of factors, as opposed to asset class labels, is the key to generating investment outcomes for clients.
