1 Investment objectives state what each option aims to achieve. They are designed to help members with their investment decisions. The objectives have been determined having regard for the long term performance and characteristics of financial markets and taking into account expert advice provided by specialist investment advisor, JANA. There is no guarantee, however, that the objectives will be met. This is because financial markets are volatile and future returns may vary from past returns. Indeed, for funds with exposure to growth assets there is a material likelihood that returns may be negative in any particular year.
