Life Cycle

Life Cycle

Investing for a certain goal

Key points:

  • Mix funds have a fixed end date, risk profile is reduced as end date approaches 
  • Suitable for those investing for specific goals 
  • Fund investors do not need to readjust the portfolio to reduce risk


The Life Cycle product consists of ten funds with end dates between 2020 and 2065. The asset allocation of the portfolios varies according to their risk profile. The concept of Life Cycle enables the risk profiles to change by gradually shifting the asset mix from more risky to less risky funds. In practice, this will lead to a reduction of the percentage invested in equities. The portfolios are diversified over different asset classes and investment styles.


The portfolio managers select attractive funds for the portfolio. The risk profile of the portfolios is reduced as the end date approaches, according to a pre-determined ‘glide path’.
