Risk in investments
Every investment carries a level of risk. Investment risk is the risk that the return from an investment is different from what’s expected. This could be higher or lower. It’s important you understand what level of risk is right for you.
Investment options with the potential to deliver higher returns typically come with a higher level of risk. These options will have a higher allocation to growth assets. Lower-risk options which typically produce lower returns will have a higher allocation to defensive assets.
