Fund commentary last updated 08 Aug 2022.

Past performance is not an indication of future performance.

Capital at risk.

This fund of fund’s objective is to deliver modest capital growth over the longer term whilst maintaining low volatility. The portfolio currently focuses on a mix of shares, bonds and alternative asset classes – the latter is made up of absolute return, property and gold funds. The Defensive fund is the least adventurous of our range and may appeal to investors who want to achieve growth in excess of what can be achieved with cash, but who do not have the time to recover from short-term market volatility. However, as with any investment it is possible to suffer losses and you could get back less than you invested.
