This section shows you where a fund stands on the risk-return scale. The scale ranges from 1 to 7, with 1 being the lowest risk and 7 being the highest. Please note, we rate risk on a scale of 1 to 5.
Typically, the higher the risk, the higher your potential gains. But higher potential rewards also mean a greater chance of losing money. It's important to understand what your own attitude to risk is, so you can pick a fund that matches it.
