LONDON and NEW YORK, June 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Newton*, part of BNY Mellon Asset Management, has announced that one of its UK subsidiaries, Newton Investment Management Limited, has been awarded a Real Return mandate by the Superannuation Arrangements of the University of London ('SAUL').  

The objective of the Newton Real Return Strategy is to achieve a real return with a low volatility and significant emphasis on capital protection.  The unconstrained multi-asset approach utilises Newton's global thematic investment process, having the freedom to invest across and within asset classes in search for the right mix of portfolio characteristics for the investment outlook that is anticipated.

Newton has been building multi-asset portfolios for clients since its inception in 1978. The Real Return Strategy is an unconstrained evolution of this long-term capability. Commenting on the second SAUL mandate, Helena Morrissey, Chief Executive Officer at Newton*, said:  "We are delighted that SAUL has added another mandate to that of the Continental European Equity mandate which we have been managing for almost four years.  This appointment is a reflection of our commitment to providing multi-asset investing as a solution based approach for clients."

Penny Green, Chief Executive Officer of SAUL, added: "We are looking forward to continuing to work with Newton on the two investment mandates.  We have found that the thematic approach adds value in the equity mandate and are confident that over a multi-asset portfolio the same will hold true."
