Important Information

Source of portfolio data: Broadridge. Source of performance data: FE fundinfo. We can’t predict the future. Past performance isn’t a guide to future performance. The figures shown are intended only to demonstrate performance history of the fund, after allowing for the impact of ongoing charges, but take no account of product charges. Ongoing charges may vary in the future and may be higher than they are now. Fund performance is based upon the movement of the daily price and is shown as total return in GBP with income reinvested. The value of your client’s investment can go down as well as up and the amount your client gets back may be less than they put in.

Fund Specific Risks

Charges to Capital

Part, or all of the periodic annual management fee(s) and expenses may be charged to capital which could increase the potential for the capital value of your investment to be eroded. Your capital could also decrease if income withdrawals exceed the growth rate of the fund(s).

Concentrated Portfolio

The 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.

Smaller Companies

The fund invests in smaller companies. Smaller companies shares can be more volatile and less liquid than larger company shares, so smaller companies funds can carry more risk.

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.

Income Eroding Capital Growth

The fund focuses on providing an income, which can reduce the prospects for capital growth, and in some cases the capital value may fall.

Umbrella Liabilities

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.

Liquidity

This fund can suffer from partial or total illiquidity, which may lead to considerable price fluctuations and the inability to redeem your investment.

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.
