Self-select funds

Making your choice easier

What is it?

Deutsche Bank and the Trustee have come up with a range of investment funds they think are appropriate if you don't want to invest in the low-involvement option or a lifestyle profile.

Remember, Deutsche Bank isn't recommending that the funds in the self-select funds are suitable for everyone.

Any choices you make now aren’t set in stone. You're in control and you can change your investments if you want - so you’re not committing yourself forever.

If you're not sure which funds are right for you, you should get help from a financial adviser.

Things to be aware of

  • Before you choose an investment fund, make sure you understand its aims and risks
  • As with any investment, the value can go down as well as up, and may be worth less than what was paid in
  • If you're in a lifestyle profile, you can't invest in any other lifestyle profile or funds
