On the financial markets, rates of return are typically linked to risk. Over the longer term, investors who are prepared to accept greater risk can typically look forward to higher returns. The risk indicator shows the Fund’s risk and reward profile. Risk level 1 signals a low risk of losing money but typically offers limited potential rewards. At risk level 7, the risk of losing money is much higher, but the potential rewards are typically much greater. Note that even investments in the lowest risk category are not entirely free of risk. The risk indicator is based on the rate at which the value of the Fund has moved up and down in the past. Note that past figures may not be a reliable indication for the future. The risk category shown is not a target or guarantee and may move over time.
