Fund objective
This fund is for investors in the Scottish Equitable Sequel Adventurous Journey fund that have reached the end of the risk reduction stage and have passed their selected retirement date (SRD). We’ll automatically switch investors into this fund on the 1 January after they reach their SRD unless they tell us how they want to take their retirement benefits before then. The fund is designed to offer some growth potential while keeping risk to a level you and your adviser have agreed you’re comfortable with shortly before you retire. The mix of investments reflects the fact that you remain comfortable retaining an element of risk through investing around 44% in equities (shares). The balance is invested mainly in UK government bonds (gilts) and cash with the aim of reducing the overall risk. The fund gets its exposure to equities and bonds through passively managed funds, which means returns (both positive and negative) for that portion of the fund should be similar to those of the indices these funds track. You should be aware that, if you don’t move your investment on your SRD, you will remain in this fund until you tell us what you want to do with your pension. Your fund will still have a significant proportion invested in higher risk investments such as equities, so there’s still a risk that the value of your fund could fall. 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.

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.
1.45
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.
0.69
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.
0.56
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%.
5.44
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.
3.07
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.
-0.22
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.
