Granite Manager Line-up

Seize opportunities with tactical asset allocation

Each Sun Life Granite Managed Solution has its own foundational mix of investment funds that make up its strategic asset allocation. Even so, there are times when changes in the market create opportunities either to reduce risk or earn potentially higher returns. Temporarily adjusting the strategic allocation to capture these shorter-term opportunities is called tactical asset allocation.

Examples:

Currency fluctuations

Inflation expectations

Oil price swings

Market volatility

Interest rate movements

Valuations

Geographical conditions

Risk levels
