Your ISA Planner.

The planner below shows the performance of an investment of £20,000 (full ISA allowance) over a 20 year time horizon. We’re comparing the forecasted performance of a Stocks & Shares ISA with Scalable Capital over 4 different risk categories with an investment into a cash ISA.

What is VaR?

Your individual investment strategy is based on the risk category which is linked to the risk measure Value-at-Risk (VaR). Scalable Capital’s VaR is defined as an annual loss, which shouldn’t be breached with a probability of 95%. For example, a VaR of 12% means that, with a likelihood of 95%, your portfolio should not lose more than 12% in value. Put differently, in nineteen out of twenty years, an annual loss of more than 12% should not occur. The risk categories which are suitable for you are based upon the risk questionnaire you have completed.

Based on historical returns (after fees) of a portfolio of Indices/ETFs from 2001 to 2016. Weights depend on the risk level.

Calculation Methodology

Stocks and Shares ISA returns

The ISA Planner uses long-term average return assumptions for a static portfolio of ETFs and index funds using historical data. The static weights depend on the risk level. The 5th, 50th and 95th percentile represent a poor, mean and good performance, respectively. Realised performance below the 5th and above the 95th percentile may occur with a correspondingly low probability and is represented by the light red and turquoise area, respectively, outside of the cone (the 99th and 1st percentile constituting the outer bounds). Our total fee of 0.75% per year as well as an average expense ratio of 0.16% per year for the ETFs are taken into account. For details refer to the Investment Planner Methodology in the Documentation section in our website footer.

Cash ISA returns

Calculations are based on data from the Bank of England as of 31/07/2016. For the projection of Cash ISA rates, the historical average of monthly interest rates on sterling cash ISA deposits from households has been used. In the timeframe of 2000-2012, the historical average is based on the monthly interest rates of branch-only deposits. From 2012 on, the average is based on online sterling cash ISA deposits excluding unconditional bonuses from households.
