Five years of growth for SLI’s MyFolio range

Standard Life Investments is celebrating the fifth anniversary of its MyFolio range of 25 risk-based investment strategies.

The range now has assets under management of more than £7bn, and in the first half of 2015 alone attracted net sales of more than £900m.

The range’s most popular choice to date has been the MyFolio Managed fund group, which has delivered an annualised return of 4.5 per cent for its lowest risk option, with performance increasing through the risk profiles to an 8.1 per cent annualised return for its highest risk option.

Iain McLeod, investment specialist for the MyFolio range at Standard Life Investments, said: “We launched the MyFolio fund range in October 2010, ahead of the implementation of the RDR, when we anticipated an increased demand from advisers and their clients for cost-effective, risk-targeted solutions that would meet a variety of investment objectives.”
