Low to Medium

You tend to prefer investments that expose your money to less risk of a decline in value.  However, you recognise that in order to achieve a higher income than you could achieve from a savings account, you accept that you must take some additional risk by investing mainly in UK fixed Interest funds (mainly corporate bonds) a small proportion in high yielding UK equities. You acknowledge that your investment is likely to encounter relatively small fluctuations in value during the investment period. The portfolio aims to provide an income of approx. 4% pa. and some capital growth over the medium to long term.

If you are unsure from the table which risk profile is most appropriate for your investment, complete our Risk and Reward Questionnaire by clicking here.

An explanation of volatility

The relative rate at which the price of a security (your investment) moves up and down. Volatility is found by calculating the annualized standard deviation of daily change in price. If the price of a stock (your investment) moves up and down rapidly over short time periods, it has high volatility. If the price (fund value) almost never changes, it has low volatility.

When considering volatility, which historically tells us the more risk you take, potentially the greater the reward; the period of investment is critical. There is little point of investing in a high risk fund for less that 10 years because the fund value will fluctuate more shaprly and more often than lower risk funds. The fund must be given time to recover, which can take several months or several years.
