Fund objective
This fund aims to provide long-term capital growth while keeping risk to a level you and your adviser have agreed you’re comfortable with. It aims to keep within a yearly target volatility range of 18.2% - 20.8%, measured over a market cycle. It aims to invest in a mix of investment types appropriate to your attitude to risk. Therefore it may hold higher risk investments such as global equities (shares), including a significant amount in emerging markets equities. The fund gets its exposure to these investments mainly through passively managed funds, which means returns (both positive and negative) should be similar to those of the indices these funds track. This fund is the highest risk in the Scottish Equitable Sequel fund range in terms of risk and so you should expect it to go up and down in value more than the other funds in the range, sometimes quite dramatically. Generally, the riskier the fund, the higher the potential returns and vice versa, although this is not always true, particularly over the short term. Sequel Investments Limited is a professional investment advisory firm, which provides the asset allocation model and oversight for the Sequel and Sequel Journey funds. Sequel Investments Limited is owned by Foster Denovo Group plc, the parent company of Foster Denovo Limited. The Scottish Equitable Sequel Adventurous fund aims to stay within this risk range over a market cycle, which can last for five years or longer. Volatility is measured using standard deviation, which shows how much the fund’s monthly returns have historically deviated from its average return. It’s shown as a yearly figure and the higher the figure, the higher the historical risk, although this is not necessarily a reliable guide to future risk.

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.
-3.67
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.
1.54
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.
0.24
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%.
11.8
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.
6.11
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.
-0.08
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.
