Our Ready-made Investment funds

Remember, the value of the investments can fall as well as rise. You may not get back what you invest. We're not recommending Ready-made Investments as being suitable for you based on your personal circumstances. If you're unsure about this investment’s suitability for you, you should seek independent advice.

How Ready-made Investments work

Our Ready-made Investments are a selection of five Barclays funds that each aims to increase the value of your investments over time, using a broad mix of asset classes from across the globe. We use a combination of index tracking funds which keeps costs low for you.

Each Ready-made Investment is a choice from a range of Barclays funds that invest in different areas and types of investment around the world according to our Strategic Asset Allocation model. Asset allocation is the way investments are organised across broad types, such as shares and bonds. Our Strategic Asset Allocation model is the mix of assets that we believe has the best chance of achieving specified financial goals over the longer term.

Low risk

Barclays Wealth Global Markets 1

This investment seeks to remove the risk of significant capital loss. The long-term level of return should be slightly higher than cash, although this can’t be guaranteed.

Low-Moderate risk

Barclays Wealth Global Markets 2

This investment takes some investment risk to try and achieve better returns than cash over the longer term. However, to reduce the risk of significant capital loss, it still has a high exposure to lower-risk assets.

Moderate risk

Barclays Wealth Global Markets 3

This investment takes a moderate level of risk to provide long-term growth. There’s exposure to risky investments, but it’s well diversified to try and mitigate some risk. Short-term changes in value are likely.

Moderate-High risk

Barclays Wealth Global Markets 4

This investment seeks to achieve a higher level of long-term growth by taking an increased level of risk. This exposure to riskier investments means you may experience significant short-term changes in value.

High risk

Barclays Wealth Global Markets 5

This investment takes a high level of risk as it seeks to achieve substantial long-term growth. Most of the holdings will be higher risk investments and you may experience considerable day-to-day fluctuations in value.

Please note: The actual asset allocation may deviate from those weights shown due to intentional shifts we make to take advantage of short-term opportunities and risks, as we see them.
