The portfolio managers also have the ability to choose other external investment managers when an internal fund is not available or suitable.

Canada Life Asset Management also has many years of proven capability in risk-targeted fund management, having launched similar Life & Pension funds in March 2008.

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.
