New fund additions - Protected Lifestyle

Quality, choice and variety. Multi–asset additions to the range increase the funds available to 89 (139 including currency variants).

As part of our commitment to providing our clients with access to a diverse menu of quality investment options within low to medium volatility limits, we regularly review the funds available to our protection product Protected Lifestyle.


We have recently completed a review of some of our investment sectors in our guided-architecture range, and are pleased to be able to announce a number of new fund additions to Protected Lifestyle.




The review process considers the performance and risk profile of funds within the range to determine whether they continue to provide the right outcomes for investors and remain appropriate for the product. Funds we feel no longer possess the right qualities will be removed to make way for new additions that offer something attractive or complementary to the range, including those highly rated by independent global investment research company Morningstar®.


As a result, we are intending to remove two of our existing funds from the range (five including currency variants), whilst adding 10 additional funds (16 including currency variants). The new additions to the range are multi-asset funds and includes the introduction of two new fund managers to the range, Momentum Global Investment Management Limited and M&G Investments.


By adding these funds, the core fund range now stands at 89 funds (139 including currency variants), increasing from 81 funds (128 including currency variants).

* Morningstar® awards a Star rating based on historic returns adjusted for risk and charges, with the top 10% of funds in a category awarded a 5 Star and the bottom 10% a 1 Star. Morningstar also award a Bronze/Silver/Gold award for those funds which have been analysed and are believed to possess the ability to outperform funds in the same category over a market cycle (five years or greater).


** Ongoing Charge (“OCF”) includes the Annual Management Charge plus other operational expenses, so better reflects the total costs applied to the fund.
