The Canadian Low Volatility (London Capital) strategy was built for times like these – and investors are reaping the benefits

As we enter the later stages of the market cycle, heightened volatility is common, even normal, as markets re-adjust to rising interest rates and a more modest pace for corporate earnings growth. But that doesn’t make it any easier for investors experiencing the sharp ups and downs of their hard-earned investments’ returns. As a result, investors are often tempted to move away from their long-term investment plans, abandoning their equity exposure in search of calmer waters in fixed-income funds or cash.

The Canadian Low Volatility (London Capital) fund offers an alternative for investors seeking more capital preservation, while still needing the long-term growth prospects of equities to meet their future goals.

“I’m not surprised. This is just the expected outcome of a very robust investment process doing what it was designed to do.” Rob Lee, Vice-President, Equities at GLC Asset Management Group. Rob Lee and Pei Li are the lead portfolio managers of the Canadian Low Volatility (London Capital) mandate.
