Desjardins Investments has changed its global real estate fund.

The change reflects the adjustment of the risk tolerance level associated with investment in the fund. This move follows a risk assessment by Desjardins Investments that took into account the following quantitative and qualitative factors:

  • The fund’s investment strategy
  • The sectors or regions in which the fund invests
  • The volatility of returns and the risk levels of comparable funds

As such, the risk tolerance level for the real estate offering has increased from medium up to medium-to-high. Its fundamental objective and strategy remain unchanged.
