Risk Profiling

At Horizon by Embark, our aim is to offer you the tools needed to fit with your business processes.

MAPPING TOOLS

The Embark Horizon fund range is managed in line with EValue’s risk profiles. However, we work with other third party providers to map these funds to other popular attitude to risk profiles. Below you will find how the funds map to the Distribution Technology, FinaMetrica and Defaqto risk profiling scales. The synthetic risk reward indicators (SRRI) can be found on the funds’ Key Investor Information Documents (KIIDs).

The SRRI is a standard risk rating used by the whole industry. The higher the SRRI number the greater the potential reward but the greater the risk of losing money. The SRRI is calculated using historical volatility data using a methodology agreed across the EU.
