Low Risk...

The risk scale that we use to build our portfolios is made up of 10 profiles overall (risk profile 1 is 100% cash so we do not run an investment portfolio for this level of risk). This means that the Low Risk portfolio is suitable for investors who have an attitude to accepting risk of below average.

This portfolio contains mainly lower- and medium-risk investments such as cash, bonds and property, with a few higher-risk investments such as shares. While a portfolio like this should go up and down in value less than a ‘high-risk’ portfolio, the value of investments can always go down as well as up.

The combined ongoing charges figure (OCF) for the funds in this portfolio is 0.55% per annum.

Our returns

The returns shown here are regarded as simulated as they do not represent a single client account or an average of customer returns. The data is calculated using our model portfolios. The returns are calculated after City House Investors management fees of 0.5% per annum plus Vat. Returns also account for investment fund costs. Dividends have been included on an accrual basis. The charts show returns on a monthly basis. The Last 12 months performance calculated for 12 months to the end of the previous month, the all time performance is from inception on 01.01.2016 to the end of the previous month and the annual performance is based on calendar years.
