VT Chelsea Managed Balanced Growth

Balanced fund at a glance Feb24

We often talk about finding a work-life balance and that’s a nice way to think about this fund, too. If you want to aim for higher growth than the cautious portfolio, but you’re not really an aggressive investor, the balanced fund seeks to achieve an equilibrium.

What does this fund do?

In the balanced fund, we aim to grow your money over the long term. At the same time, we don’t want you to lose sleep if the stock market tumbles, so we’ll strive to build a portfolio with lower volatility than equities.

How do we do it?

Delivering excellent returns is not just a case of making gains when the market does well. If you can also lose less when the market falls, you increase your chances of coming out ahead over the medium to long term. And by striking a sensible balance between different types of assets, that's exactly what w'll try to do in this fund.

What do we invest in?

As the name suggests, we will hold diverse, yet complementary, funds in this portfolio. These funds may contain UK and overseas equities, bonds, property, gold, targeted absolute return strategies and other investments. The target equity weighting is 50%-70%, but we will vary the mix of sectors, assets and investing styles over time to suit different market conditions.

We believe in transparency, so you can see a full list of what the VT Chelsea Managed Balanced Growth fund invests in below.
