Who we are

At NAB Asset Management, we believe in driving successful relationships. With knowledge and experience behind us, we work towards the best results in investment management and asset consulting, for institutional and retail clients in both domestic and global markets.

We partner with our clients, and with some of the best investment talent from around the world, to achieve superior outcomes backed by first class research and investment solutions.

Our difference is our people. With an integrated team and complete service offering, our range of expertise is unmatched in the Australian market.

We are committed to attracting and growing the best talent, so we can continue to form successful relationships that are based on integrity, transparency and excellence.

Success is our focus

Our ability to attract some of the best investment managers with our market leading research, advice and portfolio construction capabilities allows us to deliver superior outcomes, and real competitive advantages for our clients1.

Investment management

We look to identify and develop high quality investment management capability. Our close relationships with investment management firms help us give our clients access to a diverse range of asset classes and investment products, all managed by committed investment professionals.


We partner with investment talent in two key ways:

Multi-asset

Our multi-asset approach combines the expertise of over 50 leading investment managers from around the world. This approach gives investors access to a combination of individually selected investment managers providing diversity across asset classes, within asset classes and across investment styles. Ultimately, the aim is to deliver consistent performance in variable market conditions, while significantly reducing risk without compromising the overall return.

Boutique business partners

NAB Asset Management partners with select boutique investment management firms to enhance their capabilities by providing access to distribution channels, client services and other operational support.

Each boutique partner operates under their own investment philosophy, so our role is to support their philosophy and grow their business. This allows them to remain focused on what they do best – creating quality investment outcomes for their clients.

Through these relationships we provide clients access to a diverse range of traditional and alternative asset classes and investment products, managed by investment professionals who focus on delivering superior investment outcomes.


Asset consulting

Our team is well versed in traditional and implemented consulting advice. Our experience helps us with our aim to provide  the best expert research, advice, portfolio construction and implementation strategies, to deliver effective solutions.

We're always researching investment managers, and have an in-depth knowledge of their philosophies and styles, and their strengths and weaknesses. Using this research, we can advise what the best mix of managers is for each investment objective.

Using our knowledge of our clients’ long and short term needs, we can provide effective consulting that gets results. We don’t compromise on being rigorous about determining the optimal asset allocation for a client’s fund. Our clients also benefit from the collaborative knowledge of a large investment team that can be seamlessly implemented via a range of investment solutions.
