MyFolio Managed

For pensions and ISAs

Our MyFolio Managed options let you invest like an expert without having to actively manage your investments. They include a variety of different types of investment in one solution, so they’re as quick and simple as investing gets.

All you have to do is choose the most appropriate one for you based on how much risk you’re comfortable taking. Our experts will do the rest.


  • Decide what it should invest in and when
  • Make sure it doesn’t take any more or less risk than you said you were comfortable with
  • Aim to produce the best possible returns for the level of risk you’ve chosen

Of course, as with any investment, the value of the funds you’re invested in can go up and down, and may be worth less than was paid in. And we do recommend regularly reviewing your investments to make sure they’re still right for you and they’re on track to meet your goals.

Straightforward to work out which one’s right for you

1. Decide how much risk to take and the best MyFolio Managed option for you

You choose the one that’s most appropriate for you from one of five risk levels.

  • I - lower risk
  • II - lower to medium risk 
  • III - medium risk
  • IV - medium to higher risk
  • V - higher risk

If you’re not sure which risk level is right for you, our risk questionnaire might help.

2. Select your option and let us do the rest

That’s it. Our experts will get on with managing the option you’ve chosen, and make sure it continues to do what it should be doing.
