Without this information, you might find yourself exposed to more risk than you’d like, or may find it hard to generate the returns you want within your investment timeframe. The following questions will help you build a picture of what your risk profile looks like.

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.
