Reasons to recommend

Retirement solution with monthly income

The increased flexibility in options for taking income at retirement has prompted more people to consider new opportunities. This fund aims to provide investors with both a regular monthly income and the prospect of long-term capital growth. There is also potential for a quarterly uplift in income if investment returns permit.  The Fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within five years of making their investment.

Diversified global investments 

The Fund is invested across a broad range of asset classes, including equities, bonds and property, and in a wide range of geographic regions, sectors and companies. This level of diversification allows the fund manager to access more investment opportunities while also spreading risk.

A focus on quality 

The fund manager focuses on identifying equity investments that are backed by robust business models, strong balance sheets and market share, together with the ability to provide stable or growing dividends and other income streams. When selecting fixed income securities, the focus is on the underlying fundamentals and strength of the balance sheets of the companies with a target of optimising risk-adjusted returns

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.
