The LF Canlife Managed 0%-35% Fund seeks to provide long-term capital growth and income through a diversified portfolio of UK income-generating assets – namely bonds, equities and direct property.
The strategy for the LF Canlife Managed 0%-35% Fund has been employed for the existing Canlife Managed (0%-35% Shares) Life and Pension Funds for more than a decade.
Our strategy is straightforward. We seek to construct a diversified portfolio 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, allocating across a broad range of UK assets – including income-orientated equities, property, as well as government bonds and corporate bonds. We continually look to focus on assets providing a competitive yield. Our fixed income allocation provides stability and income, with short duration bonds helping to cushion against any increase in interest rates.
STABLE GROWTH AND INCOME
With interest rates close to historic lows and many global stock markets witnessing renewed volatility, the environment for investors seeking stable returns is becoming increasingly challenging. While conservative investors – such as those approaching or in retirement – still seek steady and reliable growth, a key priority remains capital preservation and consistent generation of income.
LOW VOLATILITY AND DIVERSIFICATION
Taking a diversified approach means you are not putting all your eggs in one basket. The fund aims to provide capital growth and income through allocation to UK assets - such as bonds, equities and property - while exhibiting low volatility through the cycle.
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 not only allows the Managers to receive in depth updates on the positioning and activity within each fund, but also enables them to focus on wider asset allocation decisions and to keep the product costs down.
STRONG TRACK RECORD
The existing Canlife Managed (0%-35% Shares) Life and Pension Funds have solid five and ten year track records.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested. Income from investments may fluctuate. Currency fluctuations can also affect performance. Performance figures are on a bid to bid with net income reinvested basis. Valuations are based on the previous day's prices.
