Balanced funds

Different funds to achieve unique goals

Whether you want to minimize the impact of taxes, draw an income or something else, you have options with our mutual funds.

What are balanced funds?

Balanced funds mix equities and fixed income securities to balance the aim of achieving higher returns against the risk of losing money. They tend to have more risk than fixed income funds, but less risk than pure equity funds.
