Experienced managers and specialized mandates
Large institutions like pensions, endowments and banks have traditionally had access to some of the best investment opportunities and money management services. 1290 Funds’® shareholders may have that same advantage. 1290 Funds® provides institutional-quality investment expertise to all types of individual investors, through a thoughtfully designed lineup of mutual funds structured to complement traditional investment strategies.
The investment markets offer individuals the potential to accumulate wealth and help ensure a comfortable retirement. But they offer pitfalls as well. Markets fall in and out of favor.
