Each fund has been allocated one of five risk categories: low-risk invests in money market, fixed interest and protected funds for risk-averse investors; medium to low-risk investments in global equity and managed funds, with a broad spread of investments; medium-risk investments in equity market funds, giving investors the ability to target a particular geographic region; medium to high-risk investment to specialist investment funds from outside the major markets of the world; and high-risk investments in individual sector and emerging stock market funds.
Enhanced features include extra allocations and reduced minimum top-ups for regular and single premiums and premium holidays.
