Key risks
  • Exchange rate changes may cause the value of underlying overseas investments to go down as well as up.
  • Investments in emerging markets may involve a higher element of risk due to political and economic instability and underdeveloped markets and systems. Shares may also be traded less frequently than those on established markets. This means that there may be difficulty in both buying and selling shares and individual share prices may be subject to short-term price fluctuations.
  • This trust may invest in non investment grade bonds which increases the capital risk and have an adverse effect on the performance of funds which invest in them.
  • Where permitted, a trust may invest in other investment trusts that utilise gearing (borrowing) which will exaggerate market movements both up and down.
  • External factors may cause an entire asset class to decline in value. Prices and values of all shares or all bonds could decline at the same time.
  • This trust may utlilise gearing (borrowing) which will exaggerate market movements both up and down.
  • This trust may also invest in smaller companies which may increase its risk profile.
