It makes sense to invest across a range of funds and markets, as diversification helps reduce risk. If you are a new investor or looking for a simple starting point then our ready-made fund selections might help.
The Balanced Portfolio’s objective is to strike the right balance between risk and return. It’s a good idea not to put all your eggs in one basket so it’s important to hold different types of investments. This can be done by dividing your money between funds that invest in a range of assets, across geographical regions and industry sectors. Balanced investors are those whose attitude to risk isn’t quite low enough to be considered cautious but who want more protection than the aggressive, risk-oriented funds offer. This portfolio is designed to provide capital growth and pay a reasonable income yield. Investors in this portfolio must be willing to accept some fluctuations in the value of their investments. It is important to remember that the value of investments, even the lower risk ones, and the income from them, can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount you invested.

The Seymour Sinclair Portfolios are designed for consideration by investors who are seeking a combination of funds which offer diversification across different asset classes. These suggested portfolios are not financial advice or personal recommendations and you should be sure of their suitability to you before investing.
You remain in charge of your own investment portfolio and you must continue to monitor the funds you have selected to decide if the portfolios remain suitable for you. You may customise your portfolio by deciding different percentage (%) allocations to each fund or by removing funds or adding your own choice of funds. This is a foundation to start a portfolio that you manage yourself. If we make any changes to our suggested fund choices they will NOT automatically be reflected in your portfolio – you would need to instruct us accordingly. If you are unhappy to make your own investment decisions please seek Financial Advice.
