Optimistic outlook is 7.5% growth from shares with a drop of -20% after ten years and every ten years thereafter, 3% from deposits.

Pessimistic outlook is 7.5% growth from shares with a drop of -30% after one year and every ten years thereafter, 3% from deposits

Calculation assumes that 98% of fund is invested to account for setup costs

The simulation assumes that investments are realigned with chosen strategy when income is taken and if investments fall in value.

Please note that the optimistic and pessimistic results shown do not represent, respectively, the "ceiling" and the "floor" for potential outcomes. Where they are useful, however, is in giving you a feel for the extent to which results can vary according to the assumptions we make. If we were to introduce more optimistic assumptions, then a given fund would last longer. Conversely, more pessimistic assumptions would see it run down more quickly.
