Risk Profile Classification Model

Our expansive range of Core Funds is carefully selected by top investment experts, and designed to cover the entire spectrum of risk profiles. Placing particular emphasis on different time horizons and risk appetites, the Core Funds range offers investment solutions that suit the unique risk and return requirements of every investor. To ensure that you choose an investment fund that’s best suited to your needs, you need to start by defining your financial goals, analysing your risk appetite, and determining where you fall on the risk scale. As an investor your key driving force is achieving your financial goals within a specified time frame, which in turn determines your risk and return needs. With the help of our risk profile classification model, you can find out exactly what your risk appetite is – whether it’s conservative, aggressive or somewhere in between. This in turn will enable you to choose a core investment fund based on your individual risk profile.
