What is a Standard Risk Measure?

A fund’s SRM is a simple risk descriptor to help investors compare the fund’s potential level of investment risk. More specifically, it is an estimate of how many years a negative annual return may be expected for a fund over any 20-year period. The SRM is calculated based on a fund’s asset allocation as well as capital market assumptions about the likely returns and volatility of those asset classes over the longer term.

Importantly, the SRM is not a complete assessment of all forms of investment risk. It is only one way of measuring the potential risk of an investment. For example, the SRM does not detail what the size of a negative return could be, or the potential for a positive return to be less than what an investor may require to meet their financial objectives. It is also based on gross returns and therefore, does not take into account the impact of fees, costs and tax on the likelihood of a negative return.


Why are the Standard Risk Measures changing?

The SRM changes are a change in risk classification only, resulting from changes to Pendal’s SRM calculation methodology to include forward-looking assumptions. There is no change to the investment strategy or actual risk of the Funds. Each Fund’s underlying asset allocation, investment return objective and benchmark remain unchanged.
