MLC Inflation Plus portfolios

The MLC Inflation Plus portfolios are actively-managed portfolios that aim to deliver returns above inflation over a particular period, through different investment environments. This gives investors more certainty they’ll get the returns they need to help achieve their financial goals.

MLC’s investment experts also aim to deliver a smoother path of returns than the market and limit the risk of big losses that can set investors back.

The MLC Inflation Plus portfolios give choice, expertise and access for investors to plan their future with more confidence.

Key features

  • Choice of three portfolios: a range of return targets and investment time frames to assist investors in achieving their financial goals
  • An above-inflation return objective: actively-managed portfolios targeting above inflation returns rather than simply relying on market performance. Investors can have more certainty about the returns they’ll achieve with MLC Inflation Plus
  • Focus on risk management: aiming to achieve target returns by carefully managing risk, particularly the risk of big losses that can set investors back. This also helps smooth the returns of the portfolios
  • Flexible asset allocation: by adjusting the mix of assets in the portfolios as markets change, the portfolios are better positioned to deliver returns and manage risk
  • Extensive diversification: invests in a wide range of mainstream assets (shares, bonds and cash) and alternative assets and strategies, through a number of different specialist investment managers, with the aim to provide investors’ a smoother path of returns in comparison to the market, and also limit the big losses that can permanently reduce investors’ wealth. The portfolios also benefit from the insights of specialist investment managers from all over the world through a multi-manager approach
  • Experience and track record: the ‘inflation plus’ approach has been successfully used by MLC to deliver results for investors since 2005, a period that included the global financial crisis
