Cautious Managed Funds

Compare Cautious Managed Funds

Cautious managed funds are a type of collective investment that has a restriction on the percentage it can invest in equities, with the balance being held in cash and bonds. Therefore the risk profile of the fund is reduced compared to a fund that may invest 100 per cent into equities. Under the IMA classification of this sector now known as the "Mixed Investment 20% - 60% shares" sector funds must have 30% invested in fixed income securities e.g. corporate or government bonds and/or cash investments.


There are a range of cautious managed funds to choose from, offered by a number of leading investment management firms. You can see a selection of cautious managed funds in the table below:
