The synthetic risk and reward indicator (SRRI)

Stefnir hf. has divided its funds into seven different categories depending on the standard deviation in weekly returns over the past 5 years. Category 1 is the least volatile, while category 7 is the most volatile. A fund can be moved into a different category if the volatility of the underlying financial instruments changes. The categorization is based on guidelines issued by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA, formerly CESR) on the calculation of the categories. 

The and reward scale chart is solely based on the historical volatility of returns. Past returns are not a reliable indicator of future returns and do not take into account the various risks which UCITS and investment funds may have to deal with in their operations. The categorization of funds may therefore change without notice.

The risk and reward scale chart does not represent a general description of the risk inherent in investing in units in the funds. Instead it is a statistical, material description of one of the many risk factors which may be involved in investing in such financial instruments. Further information on the main risk factors can be found in the prospectus of each fund. Please note that historical volatility in the returns of a fund does not reflect future volatility in returns. Also note that funds in category 1 do not represent a risk-free investment and there is no guarantee that your original investment will generate a return or that you will get it back intact.
