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.
Derivative Exposure - The fund invests in derivatives as part of its investment strategy, over and above their use for Efficient Portfolio Management (EPM). Investors should be aware that the use of these instruments can, under certain circumstances, increase the volatility and risk profile of the Fund beyond that expected of a fund that only invests in equities. The fund may also be exposed to the risk that the company issuing the derivative may not honour their obligations which in turn could lead to losses arising.
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.
