Your Risk Profile - Milford Asset

Your risk profile

Establishing your appetite for potential risk and return is an essential step before you invest any money. Without this information, you might find yourself exposed to more risk. The following questions will help you build a picture of what your risk profile looks like. Remember, these questions are a guide to help you to determine your risk profile and, on the basis of that risk profile, the Milford funds usually suitable for that risk profile. It is not intended to provide you with financial advice because it does not take into account your personal goals, financial situation or needs. You should not treat this as financial advice.

Milford Funds and their risk profiles

As with any investment, all Milford KiwiSaver and Investment Funds carry with them an associated level of risk. The level of risk each fund has depends on the types of assets it invests in. It is also worth remembering that a good way to mitigate some risk is to invest in more than one Fund or across more than one type of investment. This process is called diversification and you can read more about it here.

Risk versus time

Time can have a strong influence over risk. Typically, as your investment time shortens your appetite for risk will lessen because you have less time to offset any short-term falls in value. For this reason, you should re-assess your risk profile every six to twelve months to ensure you’re not carrying too much or too little risk.
