Clear Regular Invest
Clear Regular Invest is a long term savings plan from Irish Life, designed for the regular saver so you can make payments each month. You choose the fund(s) you want to direct your regular payments into, and through these funds you gain access to the growth potential of shares and bonds.
Clear Regular Invest gives you access to eight great funds, managed by a selection of fund managers, including Irish Life’s range of Multi Asset Portfolio Funds. As the name suggests, the Multi Asset Portfolio Funds invest in a wide range of assets. We recommend that you diversify your investment by not putting all your ‘eggs in one basket’ and these funds allow you to do just that.
As well as the MAPs funds, there are three other funds for you to choose from – the Consensus Fund, the Consensus Cautious Fund, and the Consensus Equity Fund. Each of the funds available on Clear Regular Invest has a different level of risk and possible returns.
Dynamic Share to Cash (DSC) model
This innovative model uses a multi-factor approach to identifying long-term stock market trends and movements. The advantage of having the DSC is that it aims to reduce the amount invested in Developed Market Shares and increase the amount in cash when it identifies greater potential for stock market falls. As importantly, when the DSC identifies greater potential for stock market recovery, it will move back out of cash and into Developed Market Shares. This innovative solution is a market first in Ireland and ILIM have spent two years developing and testing this model. It is important to note that the DSC looks at long-term movements and trends in the market and is not designed to react to one-off or short-term jumps or shocks. Also, currently DSC applies to Developed Market Shares, though ILIM will continually review this and, in the future, a similar process may apply to other assets.
