Standard Risk Measure:5 – Medium to high
Please note: The Standard Risk Measure is based on the estimated number of negative annual returns over a 20-year period and is not a complete assessment of all forms of risk. In particular, it does not take into account the size of a potential negative return. Despite the Fixed Interest investment option being assessed as having a Standard Risk Measure of ‘5 – Medium to High’, when we assess the expected risk more holistically, the option is only expected to have a moderate level of risk.
Who might invest in this option?
This option may suit medium-term investors seeking returns that keep pace with inflation in the long term, but are willing to accept moderate fluctuations in returns over the shorter term, including negative returns in some years.
