Different mix, different result

As you invest, your mix (often called "asset allocation") is the most significant factor that will determine the results you get, including the ups and downs in value you experience. It's important to get right.

Choosing a specific mix is a way of dialing your risk up or down, depending on the amount of growth assets you take on board. The more risk you take on, the higher your returns are likely to be, although this is no sure thing. That's what risk is all about.

For the most appropriate mix for you and your situation (often called your "risk profile"), see Sorted's investor kickstarter.

About Fees

You don’t always get what you pay for when investing. With fund fees, paying more does not mean you necessarily get better results. It’s often the opposite: the more we pay, the less we get. This is because the returns we receive are after any fees and taxes get paid.

Since no one can tell the future and how the different funds will do, it’s best to choose on with low fees where possible.

About Past Returns

Seeking returns is what investing is all about, but those shown here are already gone; they won’t continue. The best can become the worst and vice versa, so it’s unwise to just choose a fund based on how well it has done in the past.

There are a lot of other criteria to make a smart choice, such as the right investment mix and reasonable fees.
