 4 Standard Deviation – is a measure of investment risk or volatility in sub-period returns. Higher standard deviation means higher risk. In a normal distribution, one standard deviation covers 68.2% of data points. Two standard deviations cover 95.4% of data points. When considering investment returns, a standard deviation of 15.3% means that there is a 68.2% probability that the actual outcome of an “investment” will be 15.3% either side of the mean or average return. So if the mean expected return is 5%, there is a 68.2% probability that the actual outcome will be between -10.3% and 20.3%. If the standard deviation is 5.1%, and the mean expected return is 5%, there is a 68.2% probability that the actual outcome will be between 0.1% and 10.1% So lower standard deviation equals lower risk or lower volatility.

 11 Cash, with gross income reinvested, may have beaten inflation over longer time periods but over the last 10 years, cash has not beaten inflation if only income net of tax is re- invested and certainly currently, inflation is higher than cash returns. Investing in UK equities a riskier (higher standard deviation) asset class should deliver higher returns than gilts over long time periods. Investing in a mix of asset classes should (with good management) deliver an outcome of higher returns for taking higher risk. CONCLUSION
