Risk Level

This fund is suited to investors with a medium-high tolerance to risk and a minimum timeframe of 7+ years. 

The risk indicator is rated from 1 (low) to 7 (high). The rating reflects how much the value of the 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 risk indicator is not a guarantee of a fund’s future performance. As the fund does not have a five year history, the risk indicator was prepared using the relevant market index returns (when the fund was not in existence) and the fund's returns since then. As a result, the risk indicator may provide a less reliable indicator of the potential future volatility of the fund.
