It is important to understand the risks associated with investing as there is a chance that you will receive less from your investments than you expect. There is a direct relationship between risk and return, meaning that there are greater risks associated with potentially higher returns and vice versa. For example, the Aggressive Fund can produce very high returns - however it comes with the very real risk that you might lose money over a shorter period of time.

Your final choice may be different from what is recommended for you. Things to consider in making your final choice:
- Time before you require access to your investment. The sooner you need access to it, the more conservative you should be.
- Other investments. If you have other investments, you may be more comfortable being more or less aggressive depending on the risk profile of your other investments.
