What more can Granite funds offer? 

Broader diversification. 

Granite funds are invested across 15-20 asset classes including traditional and specialty asset classes that you cannot access in many other target date and target risk funds.

Open architecture. Multi-manager.

No company can be the best at everything. That’s why we research fund managers around the world—and we only invest our Granite funds with managers we believe are best-in-class).

Strategic blend of active and passive.

Active or passive – which is best? Both! We believe that both styles excel in different asset classes, and they can be great complements to each other—which is why Granite funds invest in both.


Our investment experts have the flexibility to tactically adjust the asset mix, asset classes or investment styles to respond to market events, taking advantage of opportunities, or controlling risks.

ESG integration.

The fund managers in Granite funds must clearly show how environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations factor into their investment analysis and decision-making.
