Creation Moderate Portfolio

Investment Objective

To achieve capital growth over a period of five years or more.

The portfolio is diversified across asset classes, with exposure to equities between 35% and 75% and with volatility of between 9% and 13%.*

The performance comparator for the Fund is the IA Mixed Investment 40 85% Shares Sector average performance. This sector is considered appropriate on the basis that the Fund’s equity exposure over time is expected to be similar to that of the average fund in this sector. The Fund is not managed with reference to a benchmark.

The Fund is actively managed. This means the fund manager uses their expertise to pick investments to achieve the Fund’s objective.

* The volatility range is a target, based on long term actuarial assumptions and the Fund is managed to stay within this range most of the time. The volatility range is regularly reviewed and may change from time to time due to changes in these assumptions.

Reasons to Recommend


The portfolio is risk-targeted, giving clients comfort that it aims to carry a level of investment risk consistent with how it is described to them by their financial adviser – and helping to give them the confidence to invest for the long term.


The Creation portfolio managers seek to spread the investments across a broad range of asset classes with a focus on creating efficiencies for investors.
