RISK WARNINGS - Please refer to the Full Prospectus and Key Investor Information documents.
Please note the following risk warnings:
• The past performance of an investment is not a guide to future performance.
• The value of investments, and the income from them, may go down as well as up and is not guaranteed so an investor may not get back the amount originally invested. Any tax reliefs mentioned are those currently available and are subject to change.
• If the funds hold securities denominated in a currency other than sterling, changes in exchange rates may affect the value of your investment.
• Where charges are taken wholly or partly out of a fund's capital, distributable income will be increased at the expense of capital which will either be eroded or future growth constrained.
• Any investment objective, performance benchmark and yield information will be treated as a target only and should not be considered as an assurance or guarantee of the performance of the fund or any part of it.
Investment in the securities of smaller and unquoted companies can involve greater risk than is customarily associated with investment in larger, more established companies. In particular, smaller companies often have limited product lines, markets or financial resources and may be dependent for their management on a smaller number of key individuals. In addition, the market for securities in smaller companies is often less liquid than that for securities in larger companies, bringing with it potential difficulties in acquiring, valuing and disposing of such securities. Proper information for determining their value or the risks to which they are exposed may also not be available.
Some funds will often carry greater risks in return for higher potential rewards. Specialist funds, which invest in specialist markets or small sectors of industry, are likely to carry higher risks than most general funds. Investment in technology related stocks can be more volatile than investment in more established companies. Above average price movements can be expected.
Market Risk: The potential for change in market value of instruments due to adverse movements in equity, bond, commodity, currency and other market prices, indices or interest rates or changes in the anticipated or calculated volatility of these movements.
Liquidity Risk: This includes both market liquidity risk and funding risk. Market liquidity risk is the inability to trade an instrument at the desired price due to a lack of supply or market demand. Funding risk is where a fund has insufficient cash to meets its financial obligations.
Counterparty Risk: The risk that the failure of a counterparty to meet its obligations leads to a financial loss to the fund, both through loss of any monies owed to the fund by the counterparty and the cost of reinstating economic exposure in the case of counterparty default.
Concentration Risk: The risk of a portfolio being too concentrated in particular positions or too exposed to certain issuers. Highly concentrated positions can exacerbate market, liquidity and counterparty risk.
Absolute Return Funds: While the investment objective of absolute return funds is to achieve a positive return in all market conditions, this is not guaranteed in any way. Investment professionals must ensure that they meet their obligations in relation to their understanding of this product and the risks involved, and the extent to which this product meets the needs of their clients.
As a result of money laundering regulations, we may request additional proof of identification. Further details are in our prospectuses and other constitutional documents.
