Canada Life Investments brings CF CanLife Managed 0%-35% fund to retail market

Canada Life Investments has extended its range of mixed asset funds with the launch of the CF Canlife Managed 0%-35% Fund (“the Fund”) under its OEIC umbrella.

The Manager David Marchant, CIO of Canada Life Limited and Managing Director of Canada Life Asset Management Limited, seeks to construct a diversified portfolio exhibiting low volatility, which delivers a reasonably secured income and steady growth over a cycle. The fund will sit in the IA Mixed Investment 0-35% Shares sector.

The fund will be diversified across a broad range of UK assets including income-orientated equities, property, government bonds and corporate bonds. David Marchant will focus on assets providing a competitive yield with the fixed income allocation providing stability and income, with short duration bonds helping to cushion against any increase in interest rates.

The strategy for the CF Canlife Managed 0%-35% Fund has been employed for the existing Canlife Managed (0%-35% Shares) Life Fund for more than a decade. The Fund allocates across a number of internally-managed strategies, principally:

  • CF Canlife UK Equity Income Fund
  • CF Canlife UK Government Bond Fund
  • CF Canlife UK Property Jersey Unit Trust
  • CF Canlife Corporate Bond Fund
  • CF Canlife Short Duration Bond Fund

David Marchant added: “We have clearly entered a period of heightened political and economic uncertainty. In the UK, advisers are increasingly looking to de-risk portfolios after a strong run for risk assets, particularly as Britain looks set to trigger Article 50 in the coming months and set in motion its exit from the EU. There are also unknowns surrounding the new direction in US politics, as well as uncertainties stemming from upcoming elections across Europe. The CF Canlife Managed 0%-35% Fund seeks to address this growing investor need for stable returns and a steady income.”
