Who it suits

Suitable if you're an investor who:

  • wants a diversified portfolio of listed assets with around 90% growth assets
  • is willing to take higher risk for higher long-term returns and wants an option that's lower cost than an actively managed option
  • is prepared to accept the option can have negative returns over the short and medium term and has a higher allocation to growth assets than the High Growth option. It invests in listed asset classes that follow market indices and so will generally have lower fees than some of the actively managed diversified options
  • is prepared to accept high levels of volatility in returns from year to year.
