Welcome to our guide to passive investing. At its heart, passive investing means trying to track a certain market, such as UK or European stock markets, and achieve returns as close to that market’s returns as possible.
This style of investing has grown rapidly over the past ten years. In part due to it being a relatively straightforward way to invest in markets, such as stocks and shares, but also because it is seen as a cost effective way to invest when many people are put off by seemingly high charges.
In step with the growth of passive investing is the growth and development of the Architas Multi- Asset passive fund range over the past 10 years.
We hope this guide informs you about the basics of investing in funds, the benefits of asset allocation and how passive investing itself works. The guide ends by providing some detail about the Architas Multi-Asset Passive fund range: passive by nature, diversified by design.
The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and is not guaranteed, and you could get back less than you originally invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. These funds may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within five years.
