  • 7

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 downs along the way. This fund started on 4/12/2020. As the fund has not been in existence for 5 years, we have used market index return data for the five year period to 30/09/2020. This means that the risk indicator may provide a less reliable indicator of the potential future volatility of the fund.  See more information about the risks of investing in the Product Disclosure Statement.
