Successful investing made simple
By ATB Wealth 26 February 2019 2 min read
For many new investors, the world of bonds and equities can seem complicated and intimidating, especially during turbulent times.
Ensuring that your money is managed responsibly and obtaining the right level of growth that you need can be difficult, especially when you consider risk. Thankfully, ATB’s approach to investing makes successful investing simple without being simplistic.
The Compass Portfolios
ATB Investment Management’s Compass portfolio funds are industry recognized, and designed to bring a range of returns for a wide variety of investors.
Six different portfolios provide a spectrum of investment options ranging from low-risk, stable returns to higher-risk funds designed for maximum growth potential. The most conservative fund is made up predominantly of bonds that can handle the negative effects of rising interest rates, while the Maximum Growth fund is invested entirely in the shares of companies based in Canada and worldwide. The portfolios aim to provide different mixes of bonds and stocks to suit the different needs of investors.
The Compass portfolios have delivered consistent returns since their 2002 inception. But what’s the secret recipe to how they manage risk and volatility?
