Fund Aims

The Sub-fund aims to achieve long-term (in excess of 5 years) total return (the combination of income and growth of capital) by investing in a mix of assets from around the world and aims to limit the average volatility per annum over rolling 5 year periods to 10%. There is no guarantee the objective will be achieved over any time period and the actual volatility, at any time, may be higher or lower than 10%. Capital invested is at risk. There is no guarantee that the volatility target will be met and at any time the actual volatility may be higher or lower than the long-term target.

Commentary

June 2022 Investment Summary

A negative month for the Passive range with returns ranging from -3.65%^ for Passive 2 to -4.22%^ for Passive 5.
^P Acc share class with data sourced from FE analytics as at 30 June 2022

June was another difficult month. Concerns over Ukraine and inflation still dominating investors thinking. With this backdrop, clearly all eyes continue to be on the major central banks.

Numerous data releases towards the end of the month started to paint, on balance, a more negative picture about the health of the global economy. Euro area inflation rose 8.6% for the year to June; 0.5% higher than May and higher than expectations. In the US, sentiment readings from the Dallas and Richmond Fed continued their dour tone of the prior month, with the Dallas manufacturing index falling to -17.7 in June compared to -7.3 a month earlier. The Richmond manufacturing index fell to -11 from -9, while the Chicago PMI also fell slightly to 56 in June versus 60.3 in May.

The real litmus test these coming weeks will be if the negative sentiment from both consumers and companies, combined with elevated inflation numbers, have caused corporate America to soften their profit outlook, as reporting season for Q2 2022 will be underway shortly. We remain alive to the prospect that another bout of volatility could be triggered if corporates materially downgrade their forecasts for the rest of the year.

The ECB summit showed no let-up in central bank hawkishness, continuing to walk the tightrope of balancing a slowdown in economic growth and a less optimistic economic outlook against a backdrop of stubbornly high inflation.

However, medium term market pricing of inflation suggests an expectation that inflation will eventually fall back, and markets are pricing in an increasing risk that this is at the cost of a contraction in output. The economic side effects of the continuing war in Ukraine on energy and soft commodity markets as well as the scars on supply chains left by COVID-19 provide additional complexity and uncertainty when calibrating monetary policy.

LF Prudential Risk Managed Passive - Tactical asset allocation activity

The portfolio manager maintains a small overweight position in US and UK equities and also added to China equities during the month. The overweight to property remains. With inflation concerns the portfolios managers feel these moves reduce risk in aggregate.

The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of ongoing charges, but take no account of product charges.

The value of your client’s investment can go down as well as up and the amount your client gets back may be less than they put in.

Fund Specific Risks

Emerging Markets

The fund invests in emerging markets. Generally less well regulated than the UK. There is an increased chance of political and economic instability with less reliable custody, dealing and settlement arrangements. The market(s) can be less liquid. If a fund investing in markets is affected by currency exchange rates, the investment could either increase or decrease. These investments therefore carry more risk.

High Yield Bonds

The fund invests in high yield bonds. High yield bonds carry a greater risk of default than investment grade bonds, and economic conditions and interest rate movements will have a greater effect on their price. Income levels may not be achieved and the income provided may vary.

Value of Investments

The value of investments, and any income can fall, as well as rise, so you could get back less than you invested. Neither capital nor income is guaranteed.

Investments Long Term

Investments should be regarded as long term and are not suitable for money which may be needed in the short term, you should always have a sufficient cash reserve.

Property

The fund invests in Property funds, property shares or direct property. In particular the following risks will apply:- The property market is illiquid and this can, in exceptional circumstances, lead to times in which clients are unable to dispose of part or all of their holding. Property valuations are made by independent agents but are ultimately subjective and a matter of judgement. Property transaction costs are high (typically around 7% due to legal costs, valuations and stamp duty)

Derivative Exposure

The fund invests in derivatives as part of its investment strategy, over and above their use for Efficient Portfolio Management (EPM). Investors should be aware that the use of these instruments can, under certain circumstances, increase the volatility and risk profile of the Fund beyond that expected of a fund that only invests in equities. The fund may also be exposed to the risk that the company issuing the derivative may not honour their obligations which in turn could lead to losses arising.

Umbrella Liabilities

If the liabilities of one fund were to exceed its assets, the other funds within the scheme might have to transfer across money to cover the liabilities.

New Fund

The charges and expenses may make up a higher proportion of a newly launched fund than initially estimated.

Solvency of Bond Issuers

If the fund you choose invests in bonds there is a risk that the issuer may default, resulting in a loss to the portfolio.

Returns Are Not Guaranteed

What you receive when you sell your investment is not guaranteed; it depends on how your investments perform.

Inflation

Inflation will reduce the real value of your investments in future.

Taxation and Tax Relief

Levels of taxation and tax relief are subject to change.
