Our Conservative portfolios have between a 15% and 35% equity allocation. If you prefer stability and a modest return, this portfolio is for you. You should be willing to accept that there are short-term market fluctuations but also hold a long-term perspective.
Below you can see how our ~27% equity portfolio has performed. This portfolio has grown by 1.05% (net of fees) from when it was launched on July 6th, 2017 to December 1st, 2018.
To put these figures in context, it's useful to compare them against an industry benchmark. To do this, we've used the ARC Indices to illustrate the average performance of our peer group. Over 50 investment services in the UK contribute to the ARC, including Barclays, UBS, Charles Stanley & Rathbones, making it a great tool for analysing how similar offerings have performed.
Disclaimer: The above graph shows monthly trends and should not be used to extrapolate performance on a specific date. With all investments your capital is at risk. Past performance is not an indicator of future performance and you may get back less than you invest.
