Portfolio objectives The objective of this portfolio is to achieve medium to long term growth of capital and income through investment in collective investment schemes (funds). The portfolio aim to provide exposure mainly to a mixture of lower risk investments like bonds and money market instruments that traditionally have lower chances of losses than equities (shares). Although, a sizable proportion of portfolio will be allocated towards equities. You should look to invest in this portfolio for a minimum of five years.

You will have low to moderate levels of knowledge about investment matters and quite limited interest in keeping up to date with investment issues. In general, you are uncomfortable taking risk with your investments, but can be willing to do so to a limited extent. You realise that risky investments are likely to be better for longer term returns. You want to try to achieve a reasonable return, and are prepared to accept some risk in doing so. As a result, you will have your money invested predominately in bonds with a reasonable proportion in short term money market instruments. A sizable proportion of the portfolio, up to 30-40% may be invested predominantely in equities, whilst including exposure to other assets like property and commodities.
