CF Canlife
UK Equity and Bond
Income Fund

The CF Canlife UK Equity and Bond Income Fund aims to generate an above-average income and moderate long-term capital growth by mainly investing in a mixture of UK equities and fixed income securities.

REASONS TO RECOMMEND

ATTRACTIVE INCOME
Due to the impact of compounding, history shows that reinvested dividends account for the bulk of equity market returns. The fund’s blend of company shares and fixed income securities allow the manager to seek out the best sources of yield.

LONG-TERM GROWTH
In addition to providing income, the fund also aims to generate moderate long-term capital growth by investing in quality companies that have consistent earnings, while retaining a focus on risk.

HIGH QUALITY COMPANIES
The fund invests in some of the world’s most familiar companies with strong market positions, which tend to have steady earnings growth and therefore are consistent dividend-payers.

MANAGEMENT EXPERTISE
Lead manager Craig Rippe has more than 15 years of industry experience and has been a fund manager at Canada Life Investments since 2004.

FUND PERFORMANCE

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. Performance figures are on a bid to bid with net income reinvested basis. Valuations are based on the previous day's prices.

HOW THE FUND IS MANAGED

The management team seeks to generate an attractive income as well as an element of capital growth over the long-term by holding a diversified portfolio of company shares and fixed interest securities.

The fund is typically allocated between 70% - 80% to equities, with the balance in UK fixed interest securities, including corporate bonds, gilts, convertible stocks and preference shares. For the equity component, the management team takes a long-term view and seeks to keep turnover at lower levels, while, the fixed income holdings generate income while adding a lower volatility element to the portfolio.

The management team emphasises bottom-up stock selection with a flexible approach, as different valuation models suit different industries. When choosing to invest, the managers seek to allocate to sectors where they see the best investment prospects, for example in defensive companies that continue to generate revenue in an economic downturn or cyclicals that do well when the economy is improving. The managers then seek out companies that have strong balance sheets and good margins. In fixed income, the team draws on the expertise of Canada Life Investments’ credit analyst team, which is part of the fixed interest team. The fund managers take a conservative approach, seeking out investments that have good credit quality and an attractive yield, preferring to hold for the long term to keep portfolio turnover to a minimum.
