Investment ObjectiveThe investment objective of the 7IM Absolute Return Portfolio is to provide a positive capital return over a 12 month period, regardless of market conditions, with a low level of realised volatility.
The investment process focusses on identifying the drivers of risks and returns and is not constrained to investing in traditional asset classes. The Investment Manager has freedom to allocate to any asset class, driven by where it perceives attractive risk-return trade-offs over the time horizon of any investment.
What You Need To Consider
In making your choice of investment you need to consider the level of risk you are prepared to take and how much you need to achieve over what time. In short, how much are you prepared to lose; are you a slow and steady investor or might you be comfortable taking more risk for the possibility of more return?
If you have a long time to grow your investments you might be able to ride out market ups and downs better than someone who needs their money in just 5 years.
Risk is however not the only factor to consider. You should also regularly reassess the suitability of your investments to ensure that they continue to meet your investment goals and suit your time horizon. And of course you must always remember that, there can be no guarantees; the value of investments may go up and down and you may get back less that you invested originally.
This fund is aimed at investors who have been able to identify their own risk tolerance, possibly using the services of a financial adviser and/or a risk tolerance questionnaire, and understand the potential range of returns, in the majority of scenarios, which this fund may experience, while acknowledging that these are in no way guaranteed. The fund should be considered to be a long term investment (at least three years) and is not appropriate for investors who are seeking guaranteed returns or no loss of capital over any time period.
