Active funds

Actively managed investment funds are run by a professional fund manager who makes all the investment decisions

Advantages - You’re paying an expert to manage your investments and take decisions for you to get the best return, so you don't have to spend time doing this for yourself. The fund manager uses his skill and judgement to make the most attractive investment decisions, within the objectives of the fund.


Disadvantages - You’re paying for the expertise of the manager and the team that supports them, but they might not always make the best decision and if the fund manager changes then so might the performance of the fund.

Passive funds

Passive funds, also known as tracker funds, aim to track the performance of a market index.
Passive funds Expand Learn more

The fund provider copies the index by buying and selling the same holdings as the underlying index and doesn't need to make independent decisions about what to invest in.


Advantages - This type of fund tends to have a cheaper fund management fee than active funds.


Disadvantages - Passive funds mirror the market or index, so when a market starts to decline, so too does the value of the passive fund.

    Risk Rating

    The Risk and Reward profile of a Fund is found in the Key Investor Information Document (KIID) and demonstrates where the Fund ranks in terms of its potential risk and reward. The higher the rank (e.g. 5, 6 or 7) the greater the potential reward but the greater the risk of losing money. It is based on past data, may change over time and may not be a reliable indication of the future risk profile of the Fund . You should be aware that even the lowest risk class (e.g. 1, 2 or 3) can lose you money and that extreme market circumstances can mean you suffer losses in all cases.

About this service


The information we provide in Quick Start Funds is an opinion provided by TD on whether to buy a specific investment.

Please note that none of the opinions we provide are a “personal recommendation”, which means that we have not assessed your investing knowledge and experience, your financial situation or your investment objectives. Therefore you should ensure that any investment decisions you make are suitable for your personal circumstances.

The funds have been chosen as suggestions to help you with your investment decision. If you are unsure about the suitability of a particular investment or think that you need a personal recommendation, you should speak to a suitably qualified financial adviser. You should also read the Key Investor Information Document (KIID) about the fund(s) you are considering. We will not inform you if the risk profile of the fund changes so you should regularly reassess your investments to ensure they continue to meet your attitude to risk and investment goals.

We also have a TD Recommended Funds list and any changes to this might affect the funds listed in Quick Start Funds, We will tell you if we make changes to our Recommended Funds or Quick Start Funds so that you can consider whether you wish to make any changes to your portfolio, but we will not make any changes to your investment unless you tell us to.

Remember that stock market investments can rise and fall in value and returns are not guaranteed, which means that you may get back less money than you originally invested.
