Risks

Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results and nothing on this website should be interpreted to state or imply otherwise. Actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in any estimates provided. The value of investments and any income derived from them can go down as well as up and the value of an investor’s investment may be extremely volatile and be subject to sudden and substantial falls. The prices of commodities contracts and all derivatives instruments, including futures and options, are highly volatile. Certain investment positions may be illiquid. The Funds may invest in securities of financially troubled companies, illiquid over-the-counter securities and non-publicly traded securities.Investment in emerging market funds involves risk factors and special considerations which may not be typically associated with investing in more developed markets. Political or economic change and instability may be more likely to occur and have a greater effect on the economies and markets of emerging countries. Adverse government policies, taxation, restrictions on foreign investment and on currency convertibility and repatriation, currency fluctuations and other developments in the laws and regulations of emerging countries in which investment may be made, including expropriation, nationalisation or other confiscation could result in loss to the Fund.

Changes in rates of exchange may have an adverse effect on the value, price or income of investments. You should be aware that investments in higher yielding bonds issued by borrowers with lower credit ratings may result in a greater risk of default and have a negative impact on income and capital value. Fund charges may be applied in whole or part to capital, which may result in capital erosion. Funds are not traded on an exchange or recognised market and in common with some of their investments may not be readily realisable. This factor can make it difficult to obtain independent verification of the investment value and the extent of the risks to which they are exposed. Investors should be fully aware of the restrictions on transfer of investments. Taxation will depend on individual financial circumstances and the country of residence.

The foregoing list of risk factors is not complete and reference should be made to the relevant Offering Memorandum of the fund in question.
