Potentially lower rewardsPotentially higher rewards
The Synthetic Risk & Reward Indicator (SRRI) is a measure of the overall risk and reward profile of a fund. Funds are categorised on a scale from 1 to 7 where 1 is the lowest risk and 7 is the highest. Typically, the SRRI is derived from the volatility of the past returns over a five year period. Historical data, such as is used in calculating this indicator, may not be a reliable indication for the future. The risk category shown is not guaranteed and may shift over time. The lowest category does not mean risk free. The SRRI is featured in the Key Investor Information Document (KIID).
