The risk/reward indicator is a measure of how much a Fund's value has moved up and down in the past, this is a standardised rating that you can also find in the Key Investor Information Documents for each fund. It can help you balance stability with your appetite for investment growth.
For example, risk level 1 signals a low risk of your fund losing money, but also a low potential for growth. The higher the risk rating the more potential there is to grow your investment, but there is also a greater chance of a reduction in value - particularly over the short term.
The risk category shown is not a target or guarantee and may move over time.
