In more detail

MAPS under the microscope

We look in more detail about how MAPS has evolved since launch, how volatility is managed and how ESG criteria are integrated within the range.

MAPS evolution over the decade

Since 2013, the strategic and tactical asset class allocations have evolved to ensure MAPS continues to represent the best of our thinking and capability in order to achieve its long-term risk and performance objectives.

A closer look at how MAPS manages volatility

To mitigate volatility, MAPS employs broad diversification - not only across asset classes but within each asset class. We look under the bonnet at the different methods used to achieved that.

How MAPS integrates ESG criteria within the range

In 2021, MAPS achieved Article 8 status under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). We examine how ESG criteria are considered within the range.

The range of Multi Asset Portfolio (MAPS) funds

Irish Life MAPS is a range of risk-rated, multi-asset funds available across our investment, pension and savings plans and managed by Irish Life Investment Managers (ILIM). There are five funds to choose from, each with a different mix of assets, including, shares, bonds, property cash and alternatives all representing different levels of risk and return, meaning there should be a fund to meet your clients’ needs. 

MAPS' objective is to manage the customer journey giving customers the confidence to stay invested especially when markets are volatile and delivering smoother returns within a risk-managed framework.
