Risk Tolerance Estimator

Use this questionnaire to help estimate your investment risk tolerance – or the amount of investment risk or uncertainty you might be comfortable with. Once you have answered the questions, you’ll see which investor profile and fund mix might be right for you.

The fund mixes shown are not recommendations, and the results of this questionnaire should not be taken as advice. Additional factors must be considered when assessing your personal risk tolerance, such as your age and health, family history and situation, other sources of retirement income, other investments and so on. Before you reallocate your pension funds, we encourage you to consult a qualified advisor about the entirety of your personal financial situation.
