Choice of risk level

There are five MyFolio risk levels for each of the growth ranges, and three for Multi-Manager Income, providing ample choice to meet the risk preferences of the majority of your clients, in a simple-to-understand format.


  • MyFolio I

    Designed for investors with a conservative approach to investing and who prefer to take a small amount of risk with the aim of achieving modest or relatively stable returns. They accept some short-term periods of fluctuation in value.
  • MyFolio II

    Designed for relatively cautious investors who want to achieve a reasonable return and are prepared to accept risk in doing so. Typically, these portfolios will exhibit relatively modest yet frequent fluctuations in value.

  • MyFolio III

    Designed for investors with a balanced attitude to risk – those who do not seek risky investments but do not avoid them either. These types of investors are prepared to accept fluctuations in the value of their investments.

  • MyFolio IV

    Designed for investors who are very comfortable with investment risk, aim for high long-term investment returns and do not overly worry about periods of poorer performance in the short-to-medium term.

  • MyFolio V

    Designed for investors who are very comfortable with investment risk, aim for high long-term investment returns and do not overly worry about periods of poorer performance in the short-to-medium term. Ordinarily, these portfolios can be subject to the full extent and frequency of stock market fluctuations.

Choice of risk level - MyFolio Multi-Manager Income

We initially designed the MyFolio funds to provide investors with a level of growth commensurate with their chosen level of risk. However, we also recognise that some investors may be seeking more income from their portfolio, particularly in a low growth, low interest rate environment. Therefore, we offer a choice of three income-focused funds for clients to choose from. Like their growth-focused counterparts, the MyFolio Monthly Income funds are selected from across the whole of the market.

We’ve structured the income-focused funds to deliver a higher level of income by a slightly different asset allocation stance to that of the growth funds, and by investing in underlying funds that have a bias towards generating income. For example, we include emerging market debt within the portfolios.

The income range complements the other MyFolio funds and offers the ability for investors to progress from growth to income over their lifetime.

Investment Process

Each MyFolio fund aims for the highest possible total return achievable for your chosen risk level.

To achieve this, our process contains four key steps.

1.Strategic asset allocation

We seek to create the most of efficient mix of assets to help deliver the possible return for each risk level. We work closely with our colleagues with expertise in long-term asset class research, portfolio optimisation and risk modelling to achieve this.

2. Tactical asset allocation overlay

We can tactically tilt the long-term asset mix to take advantage of short-term investment opportunities. In doing so, we make modest increases in our exposure to those in which we have less conviction. The Index and Sustainable range do not incorporate tactical asset allocation.

3. Fund selection and portfolio construction

We then select the optimal blend of individual funds that go into each MyFolio portfolio. This involves quantitative analysis of over 8,700 funds followed by quantitative analysis to identify each fund’s potential for risk-adjusted performance. Next, we select the best combination of funds for each risk level.

4. Rebalancing and review

Finally, we ensure the MyFolio Funds continue to deliver the appropriate risk and return outcomes for investors. To achieve this, we regularly rebalance each portfolio reviews. We quickly replace any fund that is no longer suitable.
