Canlife Managed (0%-35% Shares) Fund


The Fund aims to deliver long-term capital growth and income through a diversified portfolio of UK income-generating assets; namely UK bonds, equities and direct property.

How the Fund is managed

The Fund Manager seeks to construct a diversified portfolio, allocating across a broad range of UK assets, exhibiting low volatility, which delivers reasonably steady growth and income over a cycle. This Fund is all about dampening down risk and fluctuations for investors, therefore we take no direct foreign exchange risk, only investing in sterling denominated assets.

At all times we seek a diversified portfolio including income-orientated equities and property as well as government and corporate bonds. We continually look to focus on assets providing a competitive yield and our fixed income allocation provides stability and income, with short duration bonds helping to cushion against any increase in interest rates.

Balancing performance and volatility

As the Fund invests in a blend of assets, it has demonstrated relatively low volatility; this is mainly due to the fact that fixed income securities and equities often move in opposite directions which can mean they cancel each other out and deliver lower levels of volatility.

Based on standard deviation figures, the 'Canlife Managed (0%-35% Shares) Fund' is lower risk than the average UK Gilt fund.
