Target allocations set at 25/04/2019
Co-managed by Craig Rippe, Head of Multi-Asset, and David Marchant, CIO, the Fund’s strategy is to add value through both actively managed asset allocation and selective stock-picking. In comparison to the LF Canlife 20%-60% Fund the focus is on higher risk-returns. Investing primarily in our own range of actively managed funds, the Managers have access to the expertise of our in-house fund management teams and their long-term track records. This allows them to receive in-depth updates on positioning and activity within each fund and enables them to keep product costs down and focus on wider asset allocation decisions.
Please note prior to 14/07/14, the LF Canlife Balanced Fund was known as CF Canlife Balanced Unit Trust.
