Canada Life Pathways funds are a suite of mutual funds that act as the building blocks to reach the goals that matter to you.

These funds have leading fund managers, carefully chosen by Canada Life, each with their own process to manage their specific funds. 

When you save and invest through Pathways funds, you can take advantage of concentrated portfolios (holding a smaller number of investments than conventional portfolios). 

Canada Life Pathway funds are managed by Canada Life Investment Management Ltd.Opens a new website in a new window and offered exclusively through Quadrus Investment Services Ltd.

A concentrated portfolio means the fund typically invests in 50 stocks or less primarily in their asset class or geographic region.

Many Pathways investment managers use a concentrated portfolio strategy because while it increases volatility, it also increases the potential reward. A more concentrated portfolio also allows the fund managers to focus on a manageable number of quality investments. This can help position your investments for higher returns, so you can achieve your goals. 

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.
