WHAT IS PORTFOLIO RISK (PR) RATING?
Your Portfolio Risk (PR) Rating measures the risk exposure of your portfolio.
PR is a score from PR 0 (lower end) to PR 5 (higher end) derived from your portfolio mix of products and their respective Product Risk Ratings (PRR). Your PR is based on weighted average of the PRR volatilities of the individual investment holdings in your portfolio.
WHAT IS YOUR PORTFOLIO RISK RATING (PR) THRESHOLD?
Your PR threshold is based on the investment profile of your portfolio(s).
WHAT IS LEVERAGE FACTOR (LF)?
Your Portfolio Leverage1 Factor (LF) measures the total investment exposure (gross assets2) to your capital (net assets3). LF measures how much you are increasing your investment exposure using borrowings* and/or derivatives on margin instead of your own capital. This factor will be greater than 1 if the total investment exposure is greater than your capital.

HOW DOES IT WORK FOR YOU?
A higher PR generally means a higher proportion of your portfolio is in higher risk rated products. In such case, you may wish to adjust your portfolio.
Such portfolio adjustment decisions provide you an investment discipline in reducing risk positions in an up market (when PR increases) and adding investments in a down market (when PR decreases).
While leverage does not tie up your capital, it increases the risk and amplifies any capital loss.
LF provides you an opportunity to review leverage risk of your portfolio and make adjustments to a level that is appropriate based on your investment profile.
Under our investment suitability framework, your overall Portfolio Risk Rating will be compared against your investment profile based on your responses in the Investment Objectives Setting Questionnaire. Your overall Portfolio Risk Rating is calculated based on the risk rating of each product, its investment amount and its allocation of your overall portfolio taken on a volatilities weighted average basis. Individually, there could be some products in your portfolio with risk ratings which may exceed the threshold for your investment profile. However, your overall Portfolio Risk Rating should not exceed your investment profile. Higher investment amount and allocation of your portfolio to products with higher risk ratings will increase your Portfolio Risk Rating, and may result in your investment risk exceeding your investment profile. Likewise, lower investment amount and allocation of your portfolio to products with higher risk ratings will reduce your Portfolio Risk Rating.
