Diversify your investments
If you invest in a single company share you are taking a high level of investment risk – there are many events that could impact the value of the share from a down turn in the market to the company itself making less profit than expected.
Investing in a fund means your money can be placed in a range of different investments alongside other investors. This can help you manage the risk of investment.
Rather than investing in a single company a typical fund will have between 30 and 100 investment holdings. Therefore, your investment is made up as a wide basket of assets.
The allocation of assets within each fund can be found in its fund report along with its investment objective and risk profile. Use our Fund Selector to search for a fund, click on its name and view the fund report.
