Mr Tóth will be responsible for supporting the multi asset capability with his expertise in emerging markets and FX, including contributing investment views to the Global Multi Asset Absolute Return strategy and managing institutional multi-asset portfolios. He will also support Macquarie’s growing EMEA distribution activities.
Stefan Löwenthal, Chief Investment Officer of Macquarie’s Global Multi Asset team, commented: “We are extremely pleased to welcome Gyula to the team.

His insight will help us to continue to add value for our clients, by taking active and timely asset allocation decisions.”
Macquarie has managed multi asset strategies since 1998. The experienced Global Multi Asset team runs a Global Multi Asset Absolute Return strategy focusing on long term, stable returns using a targeted risk approach and is available in Austria, Germany and more recently the UK. Asset allocation is actively managed based on assessment of market conditions and using a pairwise methodology that allows the team to focus on the expected direction, rather than the degree, of returns of different asset classes.
