Our Risk Managed funds include two ranges of multi-asset funds that work by spreading an investor’s money across multiple different types of assets.
Those could include, for example, company shares (equities), fixed interest bonds and cash – from both the UK and abroad.
By investing in a number of different types of asset, the fund manager aims to balance the risk that is being taken. So if one asset is falling in value then another may be increasing. Of course, there could be times when all the assets in the fund are either rising or falling in value depending on the market conditions at that time.
An important point to remember is that the value of your investment can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount you put in.

*The Prudential Retirement Account, International Portfolio Bond and Prudential ISA invest in the OEIC versions of the funds while the other products invest in the Unit-Linked versions. The Unit-Linked versions generally have a slightly larger proportion of their holdings in cash and may have different charges. This, together with the different taxation that may apply to different products, will mean their investment performance can differ from one product to another.
**Link Fund Solutions Limited are responsible for all of the regulatory and legal aspects of the OEIC funds. Accordingly, OEIC fund names are prefixed with 'LF Prudential'.
