Risk Assessment Profile Summary:
a) 5-15 points
Risk Category details:
Conservative investors are investors who want stability and are more concerned with protecting their current investments. A conservative investor is generally seeking to preserve capital and as a trade-off is usually prepared to accept lower investment returns. The money market fund is the ideal product for such investors.
b) 16-25 points
Moderate investors are usually medium term investors who want to protect their capital and achieve some real increase in the value of their investments. This investor is seeking a diversified portfolio with exposure to a broad range of investments sectors. The growth fund is the ideal product for such investors.
c) 26-35 points
Aggressive investors are long term investors who want high capital growth. Substantial year to year fluctuations in value are acceptable in exchange for a potentially high long term return. An aggressive investor is comfortable accepting high volatility in their capital value, with the risk of short to medium term periods of negative returns and typically will have a long investment objective. The equity fund is the ideal product for such investors.
