Standard Life adds Meritas to seg fund line-up

Standard Life announced today that it has added Meritas SRI Funds to its line-up of retail segregated funds.

Ideal Meritas Balanced Portfolio, Ideal Meritas Growth & Income Portfolio and Ideal Meritas Income & Growth Portfolio will become part of Standard Life’s Signature Series of segregated funds, along with offerings from Dynamic Funds.

“The new Meritas SRI Funds in Standard Life's offering provide Canadians who would like to invest in a socially responsible manner with the option of some downside protection,” Standard Life said in a release. “Research indicates that interest in ethical investing by retail investors is on the rise and that investors want to know more about the social and environmental performance of companies in their investment portfolios.”
