Aegon has launched its managed risk portfolios, giving exposure to the Aegon Secure Range of unit-linked securities.

The MRPs will be aimed at those who are approaching, or in, retirement and looking for guaranteed levels of income.

Fund manager BlackRock will oversee asset allocation, the equity segment of which is uncapped.

Three MRPs will be offered for different risk appetites - the Managed Risk Portfolio Defensive will have a volatility target level of 5 per cent, the Managed Risk Portfolio Cautious will target 7 per cent and the Managed Risk Portfolio Balanced will target 9 per cent.

Aegon unit-linked guarantees director Colin Bell says: “We are faced with the reality of a longer life expectancy coupled with the ravaging effects of inflation on cash savings – consequently many people approaching or planning for retirement require the peace of mind in an investment product which targets a risk level which they are comfortable with and which suits their needs.

“These three target volatility funds, designed specifically for our unit-linked guarantee proposition, are well-diversified across asset classes and their flexibility enables them to control risk by adapting to changing market conditions.”
