Rise above it

The MLC Inflation Plus portfolios

At MLC, we realise that some investors want more certainty about the returns they'll get, and less volatility on the way to getting them.

Aiming for a particular return can help investors plan their future with more confidence.

This is why we developed the MLC Inflation Plus portfolios. These portfolios don't rely just on the performance of financial markets to deliver returns. Instead, they're actively managed to aim for the above-inflation returns investors need.
