Standard Life Investments

Investing for income

We initially designed the MyFolio funds to provide you with a level of growth commensurate with your chosen level of risk. However, we also recognise that you may be seeking more income from your portfolio, particularly in a low growth, low interest rate environment.

Therefore, we created an additional 10 income-focused funds for you to choose from – five in the MyFolio Managed Fund range and five in the MyFolio Multi-Manager range. Like their growth-focused counterparts, the Multi-Manager Income funds are selected from funds across the whole of the market, while the Managed Income funds invest mainly in funds from Standard Life Investments.

We have structured the MyFolio income ranges to deliver a higher level of income by taking a slightly different approach to selecting asset classes than the growth funds and by investing in underlying funds that have a bias towards generating income.

The income ranges complement the other MyFolio funds and, in conjunction, offer you the ability to change from growth to income depending on your requirements.
