The fund aims to provide growth over the long term while being managed to a level of risk, rather than a level of return. It is part of the MyFolio Market range, which consists of five funds with different expected combinations of investment risk and return levels. The fund is risk level I, which aims to be the lowest risk fund in this range. This level will have the highest amount in traditionally lower risk assets such as money market instruments including cash and certain types of bonds. This may suit you if you have a conservative approach to investing. The fund invests at least 60% in passively managed funds, including those managed by Aberdeen Standard Investments, to obtain broad exposure to a range of diversified investments. Typically at least 50% is invested in assets traditionally viewed as being lower risk such as money market instruments including cash, government bonds (loans to a government) and investment grade corporate bonds (loans to a company). The rest of the fund is invested in a selection of other assets such as company shares including property shares and commercial property. The fund is actively managed by the investment team. Their main focus is to select funds within each asset class and ensure that the strategic asset allocation (long-term proportions in each asset class) meets the fund's objectives. In addition, they will take tactical asset allocations (changing short term proportions in each asset class) to improve returns. It may consist of up to 40% actively managed funds (again including those managed by Aberdeen Standard Investments). Please note that the number contained in the fund name is not related to the synthetic risk and reward indicator contained in the Key Investor Information document (NURS-KII).
