A commonly cited benefit of multi-asset investing is diversification – returns that show low correlation with risky assets and that may hold up during broad market downturns. Multi-asset approaches that incorporate more diverse sources of returns, including market betas, dynamic allocation, and market selection, are typically better able to withstand market turbulence.
