QUEBEC CITY, Sept. 29, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - iA Financial Group (Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc.) is pleased to announce that it has improved the ATTITUDE Portfolios, its pre-built "life cycle" investment solution for group savings and retirement plan members.
Improvements to the ATTITUDE Portfolios include:
- Better protection against risks associated with longevity, thanks to the increased portion invested in equities
- Increased diversification, which will lead to reduced volatility of portfolio returns
ATTITUDE Portfolios combine the member's investment horizon and investor profile. They are the ideal solution to optimize the investment strategy with complete peace of mind. They are suitable for those who prefer to have experts choose their investment funds and grow their investments based on their risk tolerance and their life cycle.
"We are proud to introduce a smart and high-performance investment solution. Our ATTITUDE Portfolios are adapted to five different investor profiles. A new portfolio path trajectory is assigned to each of the five investor profiles, which is a unique concept", stated Renée Laflamme, Executive Vice-President, Group Benefits and Retirement Solutions.
Moreover, iA Financial Group recently changed the composition of the asset allocation funds it offers its Group Savings and Retirement clients. It is also in the process of making significant changes to its investment fund lineup.
