Over the long term, investing in equities* has the potential to generate higher returns than a traditional bank or building society savings account.
No asset class is free from risk. Using the different characteristics of each asset class in a balanced portfolio can help to smooth fluctuations in performance and balance risk.
The value of the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested. Please be aware, your investment may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. Up to £85,000** of your money is secure in a bank or building society through the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, unlike stocks and shares or fixed interest investments which are less secure.
* Shares of ownership in a company.
** Financial Services Compensation Scheme as at 30.01.2017.
