What does this fund do?

In the most cautious fund, we aim to produce growth over the long term, but with lower volatility than equity markets. While returns may not be as high as you could potentially get in the aggressive fund, you'll also be taking much less risk.

How do we do it?

We will invest in a variety of assets to create a diversified portfolio. We carefully select assets that are less correlated, which means investments that don’t usually rise or fall in tandem – or at least not to the same extent. This reduces the risk that everything in the fund drops dramatically at the same time and helps to smooth your returns.

What do we invest in?

We focus on lower-risk funds that are defensive in nature. These funds' underlying assets may include UK and overseas equities, as well as bonds, property, gold and other investments. We are also likely to have a high weighting to targeted absolute return strategies that aim to produce positive returns in any market conditions.

We believe in transparency, so you can see a full list of what the VT Chelsea Managed Cautious Growth fund invests in below.
