There are a number of reasons and goals that self-selecting investments may support, such as:
Supporting certain financial needs or goals: Members may be recommended specific investment funds or types of asset to invest in if they have received financial advice. This may be to support specific financial planning requirements or linked to an attitude to risk.
Private research: Some members may be familiar with investing and wish to choose certain investments because they believe they will outperform other alternatives based on research and economic data.
Our 8 Self-Select investment funds provide members with access to a range of different asset classes across a range of geographies, giving those with greater confidence and financial experience flexibility and choice to create and manage their own portfolio.
