The fund offers investors the opportunity to easily invest in a broad portfolio of funds by making a single investment. Dexter Moe, Vice President, Investment Management Services, Sagicor Asset Management Inc gave his thoughts on the driving forces behind the fund’s performance.

The Sagicor Select Growth Fund is a well-diversified portfolio, which allows clients to participate in domestic, regional and international financial markets and to spread their investment risk through exposure to various market segments.” The fund is suited to individuals with a relatively long-time horizon and is expected to achieve long-term capital appreciation.
