Introduction

The fund aims to provide growth over the long term while being managed to a defined level of risk. It is one of the five funds in the MyFolio Index range each of which offers a different level of expected investment risk and return. 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 80% 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% of the fund 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. The fund is 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. The fund will not take any tactical asset allocation positions (changing short term proportions in each fund). It may consist up to 20% actively managed funds (again including those managed by Aberdeen Standard Life 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 (KIID). Past performance is not a guide to future returns and future returns are not guaranteed. The price of assets and the income from them may go down as well as up and cannot be guaranteed; an investor may receive back less than their original investment. The fund may use derivatives to reduce risk or cost, or to generate additional capital or income at low risk. Usage of derivatives is monitored to ensure that the fund is not exposed to excessive or unintended risks. The value of assets held within the fund may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
