Risk versus return

This option has complete emphasis on growth assets with a view to achieving higher returns and therefore carries more investment risk. The value may vary significantly up or down over the short term. However, high investment returns are generally expected over longer periods. A negative annual return is anticipated on average 6 or more times every 20 years but negative returns may be more or less frequent.
