Emerging Markets - The fund invests in emerging markets. Generally less well regulated than the UK. There is an increased chance of political and economic instability with less reliable custody, dealing and settlement arrangements. The market(s) can be less liquid. If a fund investing in markets is affected by currency exchange rates, the investment could either increase or decrease. These investments therefore carry more risk.
Concentrated Porfolio - Thee fund may invest in a relatively smaller number of stocks. This stock concentration may carry more risk than funds spread across a larger number of companies.
Value of Investments - The value of investments, and any income can fall, as well as rise, so you could get back less than you invested. Neither capital nor income is guaranteed.
Investments Long Term - Investments should be regarded as long term and are not suitable for money which may be needed in the short term, you should always have a sufficient cash reserve.
Exchange Rate - This fund invests in securities outside the UK. The value of investments and any income from them may therefore decrease or increase as a result of changes in exchange rates between currencies.
Umbrella Liabilites - If the liabilities of one fund were to exceed its assets, the other funds within the scheme might have to transfer across money to cover the liabilities.
Returns Are Not Guaranteed - What you receive when you sell your investment is not guaranteed; it depends on how your investments perform.
Inflation - Inflation will reduce the real value of your investments in future.
Taxation and Tax Relief - Levels of taxation and tax relief are subject to change.
