This conservative portfolio has been designed with a dual purpose in mind – to provide a fund which generates high yields for those who require an income from their investment, and secondly, with it’s normally high exposure to Gilt’s and/or Cash, makes it ideally suited for long term growth with minimum risk to any major equity fluctuation.  Although this portfolio has been engineered with the conservative investor in mind, in times of turbulence this becomes an ideal home for ANY investor to utilise, to tide things over until normality returns to equities.
