MLC’s investment team pioneered the multi-manager investment model in Australia over 35 years ago to help investors achieve their goals. So when you're invested in an MLC portfolio, your money is with Australia's most experienced multi-manager.
We have more than 45 investment professionals** united in their focus to deliver consistent performance that supports you to achieve financial wellbeing.
** Broader MLC Asset Management team of 158 staff. Figure current as at 30 June 2023.
We invest in many asset classes to help us smooth out overall portfolio returns, offsetting the ups and downs of each asset class.
Our portfolios have different investment objectives. That's why our investment experts select a different mix of assets and investment managers for each.
Our investment managers may be specialist in-house managers, external managers or a combination of both.
We research hundreds of investment managers from around the world and select from the best for our portfolios.
We then combine them in our portfolios so they complement each other.
This multi-manager approach helps to reduce risk and deliver more consistent returns.

To make sure our portfolios are working hard for our investors, we continually review and actively manage them.
We may adjust the asset allocation, investment strategies and managers. This may be because our assessment of the future market environment has altered or because we have found new ways to balance risk and return in the portfolios.
We deliver better returns by avoiding unnecessary costs. We do this by carefully managing cash flows, tax and changes in our portfolios.

Responsible Investing Policy
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors can influence investment outcomes and should be managed prudently.
Investment management decisions for the MLC investment options on our investment menus are made by our investment experts at MLC Asset Management Services Limited (MSL), and the investment managers they select.
MSL expects active investment managers to consider material effects any factors may have on investment returns, including ESG and ethical factors. MSL, primarily through its investment managers, may also engage with companies, providing an opportunity to enhance and protect the long-term value of investments.
We also believe voting on resolutions for the companies we invest in and actively engaging with companies provides an opportunity to enhance and protect the long-term value of clients’ portfolios.
