Investing returns are based on our Balanced portfolio and include all fees. £1,000 invested at the beginning of 2011 would be worth £2,193 at the end of 2020. Where available, returns data for the selected funds have been used. Where the fund has a shortened performance history, we have used the appropriate index to simulate performance. This is the case for the Fidelity Global Equity fund prior to March 2014, the iShares Global Property Equity fund prior to October 2014, and the iShares Global Corporate Bond fund prior to January 2012. Cash returns are based on the best available cash interest rates at the beginning of each year. Both the potential risk and potential reward is greater with investing. It should be regarded as longer term (at least 5 years) and you may get back less than you invest. Past performance is not a reliable guide to future performance. Sources: Morningstar, MSCI.
