Our insights

Our research and perspectives

We periodically publish research and perspectives on a range of topics, including governance, capital markets, asset allocation, portfolio implementation, client segment-specific issues and industry best practices. Below are some recent examples.

Alternative Investment Themes for 2022

Our most recent annual 10-Year Capital Markets Assumptions have highlighted a more challenging return environment and the increasing importance of alternatives within a well-diversified portfolio. Alternative investments can enhance portfolio returns given higher potential return expectations and typically low correlation with traditional assets. Recognizing the importance alternatives will play in portfolio construction moving forward, we are launching our Annual Alternatives Investment Themes. This publication is designed to share our perspectives on where some of the most exciting opportunities are within the space. Click to read more.

Designing robust strategic asset allocations under constraints and uncertainty

Today’s institutional investors require strategic asset allocations (SAAs) resilient to long-term uncertainty. The concept of “robust” portfolios that reduce shortfall risk – even when the future doesn’t go entirely as planned – can help address this challenge. In this paper, Keith R. Collier, CFA, Director of Asset Allocation Research, provides an overview of BNY Mellon Investor Solutions’ Robust SAA Design process and highlights specific innovations that differentiate our approach from conventional methods.


Alternative Risk Premia: An Alternative to Alternatives

An emerging area of interest for investors, academia and practitioners, we examine how diversified alternative risk premia (ARP) strategies may serve as a replacement for certain hedge fund exposures within a portfolio, offering both a lower fee and favourable diversification benefits. This paper, authored by James Podder, CFA, CAIA and Jasmine Yu, PhD, CFA, CAIA, defines and outlines ARP and the role it can play in diversified portfolios.

The path to robust strategic asset allocation

Two keys to a portfolio design process that can fulfill multiple, competing objectives are an adaptable research philosophy and a flexible technology platform. In this paper, Keith R. Collier, CFA, Director of Asset Allocation Research, explains the evolution of the BNY Mellon Investor Solutions approach to strategic asset allocation (SAA) – from the artisanal to the systematic – and how that journey led to the development of a unique robust SAA methodology that can stand the test of time.

10-Year Capital Market Return Assumptions – 2020

Every year BNY Mellon Investor Solutions, LLC develops capital market return assumptions for approximately 50 asset classes around the world. The assumptions are based on a 10-year investment time horizon and are intended to guide investors in developing their long-term strategic asset allocations. Here we examine such assumptions to reflect views and potential dislocations in global markets, based on research from across BNY Mellon Investment Management. This document outlines forecasts for the next 10 years and provides supporting details behind the data.

Operational Due Diligence - FAQs

The Operational Due Diligence Team at BNY Mellon Investor Solutions, LLC is dedicated to evaluating the business, operational, compliance and fund structure risks of prospective and current managers for client accounts. Our process is independent, yet complementary, to the manager research process, which examines investment risks. In this paper we outline our ethos, process and practice – encompassing our current focus amid today’s challenging backdrop of heightened risks and restrictions on company visits.
