General Risk Factors
Investment involves risks. The value of investments and any income generated may go down as well as up and is not guaranteed. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Where yields have been quoted they are not guaranteed. Changes in rates of exchange may have an adverse effect on the value, price or income of investments. Investors should be aware of the additional risks associated with investments in emerging or developing markets. Investors 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. Income payments may constitute a return of capital in whole or in part. Income may be achieved by foregoing future capital growth. Investors should be aware of their local laws governing investment products shown on this site and should read all the relevant documents including Report and Accounts, Key Features/Simplified Prospectus, Prospectus and Scheme Particulars as appropriate.
Investment in a Fund is not intended to be a complete investment program for any investor. An investment should be viewed as a medium to long-term investment. As part of your long term investment planning you should consider diversifying your portfolio by investing in a range of investments and asset classes.
