Why choose Global Index Funds?

Standard Life's Global Index Funds take the effort out of investing. They give your clients the choice of five professionally-managed, multi-asset investment portfolios made up of different combinations of equities and bonds. 

They invest in index funds managed by Vanguard, one of the world's largest fund managers. Each of the funds are rebalanced on an ongoing basis, so the mix between equities and bonds stays consistent over time.

These funds are designed to help your clients meet their financial goals, and are a relatively low-cost way to invest in a diversified, all-in-one portfolio, with each of our five funds having an annual management charge of 0.95%

Risk versus returns

In the simplest possible terms, the more risk clients are comfortable taking in their investments, the greater the potential reward over time. That also means, however, that there is greater potential for loss.

Our five funds are designed and constructed to offer a range of options by combining different percentages of bonds, generally considered as lower-risk investments, and higher-risk equities.
