Reducing risk with smoothed funds

Our Smoothed Managed Funds have a track record of performing as they should during difficult market conditions. During the heightened market volatility in early 2020, our funds continued to function normally – with no unexpected price adjustments.

With a range of multi-asset, risk-rated options, our funds have been designed to deliver a low volatility investor experience for your risk-sensitive clients – typically those who are in or nearing retirement.

Smoothing – offering more stability for anxious investors

Suited to your risk-averse clients, smoothing helps to iron out the highs and lows of the market. The result: a smoothed average fund price.

Important information

As with any investment, there are some important things you need to know about our Smoothed Managed Fund range:
  • The funds within our Smoothed Managed Fund range are designed to provide long-term steady to moderate growth for at least 5 years or longer.

  • Our smoothing process doesn’t prevent investments from dropping in value. Smoothing will not prevent losses in longer term falling markets.

  • Your clients’ investments go down as well as up – they could get back less than invested.

  • Where a guarantee option is available, your client will need to be aware of the associated terms and charges.

  • Smoothing can be suspended at our discretion. This may be in exceptional conditions or if the underlying price was 80% or less of the averaged price. If smoothing was suspended the funds may need to be valued using the underlying price. For some funds, we also have discretion to use a daily gradual averaged price with an appropriate smoothing period of up to 26 weeks.
