Reasons to recommend

Capitalising on best investment opportunities

The Fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within five years of investing.  It may be appropriate for investors seeking longer-term capital growth while also being able to accept a higher level of risk, in accordance with their risk profile.


The Fund offers a straightforward, well-diversified portfolio consisting of a broad range of global assets, including global equities, government and corporate bonds, providing higher exposure to growth assets throughout the economic cycle.

In-house management expertise

By investing in our own cost-effective range of actively managed funds, we are able to draw on the expertise of our in-house fund management teams and their long-term track records in fixed income, equities and property. The fund manager also has the ability to choose other external investment managers if 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 value of investments may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested

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.
