Investment funds

Investment funds to Diversify the risk and cost of your investment

What are Investment Funds?

Investment funds are pooled funds that can invest across different sectors, countries and product types. This helps diversify risk and reduce costs, while giving you access to a wide variety of markets. The fund is managed by a professional fund manager whose job it is to aim to maximise returns while minimising risks. Returns are made on the rise of the investments.

They should be seen as medium to long-term investments. Your Relationship Manager will work with you to identify which funds best suit your strategy - whether as the cornerstone of a long-term investment plan or to complement your existing portfolio.

Why you may consider Investment Funds?

Investment Funds could be appropriate if you:

  • want lots of choice about where you invest your money. They are available at all levels of risk, from, low-risk Money Market funds to higher risk Equity Funds.
  • are looking to grow your wealth, or receive an income, or a combination of the two, as different Investment Funds aim to achieve all these goals, to varying extents.
  • want to make a medium to long-term investment and minimise your costs and risks.

Benefits and risks

  • You can enjoy access to a wider range of securities, industries and markets than most single investments, diversifying your investment risk while increasing potential returns.
  • By pooling together the money of multiple investors, transaction costs can be kept lower.
  • It's a simple and hassle-free way to invest. Rather than buying shares directly in a company yourself, you don’t have to track the market movement on a daily basis – all of this  is done for you.
  • Funds that invest in smaller companies may involve more volatility than larger stocks, while investments in emerging markets may also involve a higher degree of risk.
  • Investment products in foreign currencies may  be subject to exchange rate fluctuations.
  • Investment products are subject to investment risks, including possible loss of some, or all, of the principal amount invested. Past performance is not indicative of future results. Investments can go down as well as up. This means you might get back less than you invested.
