    Just had a peak at the performance for the june 2008, out of curiousity for those that did and what an ugly sight it is!


    Threshold Management has reduced exposure to many of the underlying investments to between the ranges of 0% - 27%. With falls in capital value of between -21% to -49%, these funds are never going to make their money back!

    Capital protection is great but thresehold management in the current climate of high volatility is absolutely the wrong way to go. I prefer the OM-IP stlye of protection where from day one they put $0.70 away in a bond and go nuts on whats left.

    Just use this as a warning if your thinking of using a capital protected product, look closely and see how they are protected.

    Hi Young Gun,

    Ouch - That'll leave a sour taste with some investors...

    Personally I prefer the AXA North platform, you get your high quality funds and you can protect yourself from the downside just like buying car insurance and you can turn it on or off when you want! Without selling into cash...Take funds out when you want! etc...
