What is Clear Invest?

Clear Regular Invest is a long term life assurance 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.

Fund choice

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 which range from lower risk to higher risk to suit different attitudes to risk. These funds are invested in a wide range of cash, property, shares and bonds.

Each Multi Asset Portfolio Fund uses the Dynamic Share to Cash (DSC) model. The DSC aims to reduce the amount invested in shares when it identifies greater potential for stock market falls. 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.

Why Clear Regular Invest?

Clear Regular Invest might suit you if you:

  • Want to invest for at least 5 years.
  • Have at least €100 a month to save.
  • Do not want to make regular withdrawals.
  • Do not need to protect your money and are prepared to risk getting back less than you put in.
  • Are aged between 18 and under 71 (next birthday).

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 Irish Life Investment Managers(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.
