Types of Canada Life Mutual Funds

One of the easiest ways to classify investments is by asset class. An asset class is a group of investments which have similar characteristics and behave similarly in the marketplace. Each asset class performs a specific function within a portfolio. Historically, they’ve had different rates of return and risk.
