Fund objective
The GPP Default fund uses a two-stage investment process called lifestyling. It aims to perform in line with its benchmark in the early years (the growth stage), and give you more certainty about the amount of pension you can buy via an annuity when you retire (the lifestyle stage). Growth stage During the early years of your investment, the fund aims to provide long-term capital growth by investing in a diversified portfolio of mainly UK and overseas equities (shares), but also in fixed interest investments (bonds) and cash. It aims to broadly match the performance of its benchmark, the ABI Mixed Investment 40-85% Equities pension sector median, by investing in largely the same assets and in the same proportions as it. The fund’s performance may not always precisely track the average. For example, when market conditions offer particularly strong opportunities to actively managed funds, the fund’s returns may be lower than the sector average. Lifestyle stage The lifestyle stage starts six years before the start of your target retirement year and recognises that your priorities may change as retirement approaches. It assumes you’ll buy an annuity, to provide yourself with an income for life (or a specified number of years), when you retire. We’ll progressively start switching your investment into our Long Gilt fund, with the aim of giving you more certainty about the level of annuity you’ll be able to buy when you retire.

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.
0.02
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.
1.12
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.
0.52
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%.
8.01
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.
1.89
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.
0.4
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.
