Distribution Technology and Synthetic Risk Return Indicators (SRRI)
These risk profiles do not replace the Synthetic Risk Return Indicators (SRRI). SRRI figures are calculated in accordance with guidelines issued by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA). It measures each fund on a scale from ‘1 (typically lower rewards with lower risk)’ to ‘7 (typically higher returns with higher risk). The SRRI is calculated using a quantitative measure of a fund’s past performance and its volatility. The SRRI figures for each of our funds are published in the respective Key Investor Information Document (KIID).
The document above explains how Distribution Technology’s risk profiling methodology differs from the SRRI.
