Portfolio Strategy and Volatility

Portfolio strategy and volatility

The portfolio aims to provide capital gains with potential for income gains, while accepting the prospect of some volatility, over 5+ years.

About this mix

The portfolio features a mix of global shares, also known as equities, and Government and good-quality corporate bonds to provide the potential for both capital gains and some income. The shares element aims to generate capital gains and some income whilst the bond portion is designed to generate income and offer some capital protection. The small exposure to Emerging Markets raises the potential risks but also offers access to markets with potentially superior long-term growth prospects.
