Mutual funds

Through Great-West Life’s mutual fund dealer, Quadrus Investment Services Ltd., we can help you make informed decisions about your investments.

What is a mutual fund?

Investing in mutual funds involves taking some of your money and putting it in a larger pool of funds managed by a team of professional money managers. Because of the large amount of money in the pool, and because your money is managed by specialists in the field, mutual funds can diversify your portfolio more widely than you may be able to do when investing on your own.

Overall, investing in mutual funds is an easy way to start building a sensibly managed and highly diversified financial portfolio. Quadrus Investment Services Ltd. offers you a range of planning options and support to help you achieve your investment goals.

How does it work?

Once you’re ready to discuss mutual funds in greater detail, your investment representative will work with you to determine your risk tolerance, objectives and financial goals to determine which mutual funds fit your investment profile.

Your investment representative will meet with you on a regular basis to determine if your risk tolerance or investment objectives have changed over time. If that’s the case, they can help you rebalance your portfolio accordingly.

Professionally managed portfolios

Mutual funds give investors access to a well-managed and highly diversified portfolio of equities, bonds and other securities.


Choosing to invest in a single company or industry may be very risky. Mutual funds allow investors to diversify their portfolios, helping them accommodate changes in the market.


Typically, mutual fund units can be redeemed – or “cashed out” – at any time. (The redemption value will depend on the load structure of the purchase and the unit value on the day of redemption, which may be lower or higher than the purchase price.)


Mutual funds are one of the most cost-effective ways to own a diversified, professionally managed portfolio. That’s because a mutual fund allows you to invest in several different companies at a fraction of the cost – a cost that’s shared with other investors.

Investment managers

You benefit from the expertise of professional money managers who have training and experience in the investment field.

The Quadrus Group of Funds™, distributed through Quadrus Investment Services Ltd., has a prominent team of investment managers who continually research and monitor markets, trends and the companies in which they invest on your behalf.
