What's the strategy?
Conservative Profile (PSG) is a target risk fund of funds, holding underlying funds that invest in asset classes including Canadian and foreign fixed income, Canadian mortgages, Canadian real estate, and Canadian and foreign equity.
It is constructed to provide strong income, modest growth opportunity, and very low volatility. The strategy has a consideration to inflation protection, a highly diversified fixed income allocation, including government and credit bonds, mortgages, and foreign debt, and a preference for large cap value stocks in the equity allocation.
Why invest in this portfolio strategy?
Ideal for investors seeking a primarily fixed income portfolio with some equity and real estate exposure.
The strategy provides diversification through exposure to multiple asset classes in domestic and foreign markets and multiple active managers.
Investors benefit from tactical asset allocation decisions by the portfolio manager, including changes to the fixed income/equity allocation as well as the domestic/foreign allocation of the funds. The portfolio manager may make changes to the underlying fund mix in line with current forward-looking views on an ongoing basis. In addition, investors benefit from the active management of the underlying fund managers. Investors further benefit from automatic rebalancing, ensuring the asset mix stays close to the desired asset mix.
