Why you’d invest

Invest in this option if you have an investment timeframe of at least seven years. It’s for those wanting to achieve potentially higher long-term returns from a portfolio of Australian shares, who are willing to accept a higher level of volatility in returns and the possibility of negative returns over the short term.

The minimum investment timeframe is 7–10 years.

The risk level is based on the Standard Risk Measure.
