The Fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money in five years. It may be appropriate for investors seeking longer term capital growth while also being able to accept a higher level of risk.
The Fund is constructed of a diversified portfolio consisting of a broad range of global assets (through collective investment schemes), including global equities, government and corporate bonds and UK property, providing a higher exposure to growth assets throughout an economic cycle.
By investing primarily in our own cost-effective range of actively managed funds, we are able to leverage the expertise of our in-house fund management teams and their long-term track records in fixed income, equities and property. The portfolio managers also have the ability to choose other external investment managers when an internal fund is not available or suitable.
This fund is available as part of the Core Range within Canada Life’s Retirement Account solution. For more information on this visit here.

The fund may invest in property funds that may be illiquid and subject to wide price spreads, both of which can impact the value of the fund. The value of the property is based on the opinion of a valuer and is therefore subjective.
