Growth

The Growth portfolio objective is capital growth. It will mainly be invested in higher risk growth assets such as equities. The focus of this portfolio on equities provides the potential for higher returns and is designed for investors who intend to invest for the long term and are comfortable with taking high level of risks. Investors must be willing to accept substantial fluctuations in the value of their investments. It is important to remember that the value of investments, even the lower risk ones, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount you invested.

Please remember, for investments in overseas markets, the returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. For funds that invest in bonds the price of bonds is influenced by movements in interest rates, changes in the credit rating of bond issuers and other factors such as inflation and market dynamics. In general, as interest rates rise the price of a bond will fall (and vice versa). Bonds with a longer time to maturity are generally affected to a greater degree. The risk of default is based on the issuer’s ability to make interest payments and to repay the loan at maturity. Default risk may therefore vary between different government issuers as well as between different corporate issuers. Funds holding smaller companies may be less liquid and price swings greater than those in larger companies. Some funds can also use derivatives to take short positions in companies. The use of derivatives can under certain circumstances increase volatility & risk beyond that expected of a fund that only invests in conventional equities.
