Fund objective and strategy

The fund aims to achieve positive long-term returns by investing in selected international shares, subject to the risks associated with investments in international share markets.

We may invest directly into these assets, or into other managed investment schemes that do so.

These kinds of investments will typically have high levels of movement up and down in value. They can be suitable for someone who wants to invest in shares and is comfortable with that level of movement with a view to achieving higher longer-term returns.

Risk indicator

The risk indicator is rated from 1 (low) to 7 (high).  The rating reflects how much the value of the relevant fund’s assets goes up and down (volatility).  A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and down along the way.  See section 4 of the PDS ‘What are the risks of investing?’ for more information.
