Fund objective
The portfolio aims to optimise returns while maintaining a level of risk you’ve decided you’re comfortable with. It aims to produce higher returns than a bank savings account and the Scottish Equitable Barclays GlobalBeta 1 Portfolio over the long term, while avoiding large falls in value. However, it’s possible that returns won’t keep up with inflation. Barclays manage this fund on the working assumption that you’d prefer to experience a steady but low rate of growth in the value of your investments, rather than a higher, more changeable rate with a greater chance of losses. The portfolio invests mainly in traditionally lower-risk investments (asset classes) such as cash, government bonds (gilts) and corporate bonds, with a significant amount (currently around 55%) invested in riskier assets such as developed and emerging market equities (shares), and high yield and emerging market debt. It aims to be the second least risky of the five Scottish Equitable Barclays GlobalBeta Portfolios.

Risk statistics
Alpha
?Alpha is a measure of a fund's over- or under-performance by comparison to its benchmark. If the Alpha is 5, the fund has outperformed its benchmark by 5%; so the greater the Alpha, the greater the outperformance.
-1.36
Beta
?Beta estimates a fund's volatility by comparison to that of its benchmark. A fund with a beta close to 1 means that the fund will move generally in line with the benchmark. Higher than 1 and the fund is more volatile than the benchmark and vice versa.
0.75
Sharpe
?This commonly-used measure calculates the level of return over and above the return of a notional risk-free investment, such as cash. The difference in returns is then divided by the fund's volatility. The resulting ratio is an indication of the amount of excess return generated per unit of risk.
-
Volatility
?Volatility (or standard deviation), when applied to an investment fund, expresses its risk. It shows how widely a range of returns varied from the fund's average return over a particular period. For example, if a fund had an average return of 5%, and its volatility was 15, this would mean that the range of its returns over the period had swung between +20% and -10%.
5.88
Tracking error
?This measures the standard deviation of a fund's excess returns over the returns of an index or benchmark portfolio. As such, it can be an indication of 'riskiness' in the manager's investment style. A Tracking Error below 2 suggests a passive approach. At 3 and above the the manager will be deploying a more active investment style.
2.95
Information ratio
?This is a useful risk-adjusted measure of actively managed fund performance. It is calculated by deducting the returns of the fund's benchmark from the fund's overall returns, then dividing the result by its tracking error. The higher the Information Ratio the better. It is generally considered that a figure of 0.5 reflects a good performance, 0.75 very good, and 1.00 outstanding.
-0.96
R-Squared
?An indication of how closely correlated a fund is to an index or a benchmark. Values for R-Squared range between 0 and 1, with 0 indicating no correlation at all and 1 showing a perfect match. Values upwards of 0.7 suggest that the fund's behaviour is increasingly linked to its benchmark.
