Fund selection

We all have different goals – that’s why having a wide choice of funds is important. Yet faced with so much choice, knowing where to start can be tricky. To help you, we’ve split our funds into easy selections.

Remember though that no matter which funds you choose, all investments carry risk and you could get back less than you initially invested. To invest in funds you need to be prepared to invest for at least five years and be willing to take a risk as you could lose money.

Things to remember

  • The value of funds can go down as well as up and you can lose money
  • Funds are medium- to long-term investments and are not suitable for everyone
  • An investment's past performance is not a reliable indicator of its future performance.
  • If you're unsure please seek independent financial and taxation advice.
