The Allianz RiskMaster range is a series of four risk-profiled, multi-asset funds: the Allianz RiskMaster Defensive, Conservative, Moderate and Growth funds. The risk profiling has been done by Distribution Technology and the funds will be in housed in its risk categories 4, 5, 6 and 7 respectively.

The company is so confident of its categorisation that it will waive its annual management fee for the three months following any change in the risk category of the four funds. They will honour this commitment for at least the next 12 months.

This RiskMaster range will be run using the expertise of its 30-strong risklab – described as a “centre of competence” for risk management solutions – using strategic and dynamic asset allocation.

The core to the proposition is already in use within institutional mandates and is now available to the UK retail investor for the first time.

Dr Reinhold Hafner, risklab’s chief executive commented: “The RiskMaster range combines diversification and risk control with cost effective implementation to provide an investment solution that meets an investor’s risk profile. The funds reflect the need for sophisticated solutions to meet the current challenges of low gilt yields, deteriorated credit ratings for sovereign debt and the high volatility of risky assets such as equities.”
