The weighted total cost for the portfolio including management, trading & research costs.


A risk level 4 investor should be prepared to accept annual returns somewhere within the range of a -12.66% loss and a 22.24% gain — returns within this range would be expected 95% of the time. It should be remembered that there is a 5% chance that a risk level 4 portfolios will experience an annual return outside this range — this means an investor may experience losses greater than -12.66% or gains greater than 22.24% at some point(s) during their investment in one year.
