Investment in the Fund should be regarded as a long-term investment. Investors should consider the investment risks detailed below before investing in the Fund and in case of doubt consult their financial advisor. 


The investments of the Fund are subject to normal market fluctuations and other risks inherent in investing in securities. There can be no assurance that any appreciation in value of investments will occur. The value of investments and the income derived from them may fall as well as rise and investors may not recoup the original amount invested in the Fund. There is no assurance that the investment objectives of the Fund will actually be achieved. 


Where a preliminary charge is imposed, an investor who realises his Units after a short period may not (even in the absence of a fall in the value of the relevant investments) realise the amount originally invested. 


Investors are reminded that in certain circumstances their right to redeem Units may be suspended. 
Currency fluctuations may adversely affect the value of the investments of the Fund.


The Fund may invest in emerging markets and investments in emerging markets may involve a higher than average risk. Indeed, companies in emerging markets may not afford the same level of investor protection as would apply in more developed jurisdictions. Lack of liquidity and efficiency in certain of the stock markets or foreign exchange markets in certain emerging markets may mean that from time to time the Fund may experience more difficulty in purchasing or selling holdings of securities than it would in a more developed market. 


Investment by the Fund in smaller companies' securities may be less liquid than the securities of larger companies as a result of inadequate trading volume or restrictions on trading. Smaller companies may possess greater potential for growth, but can also involve greater risks, such as limited product lines and markets, and financial or managerial resources. Trading in such securities may be subject to more abrupt price movements and greater fluctuations in available liquidity than trading in the securities of larger companies. 


Units or shares of collective investment schemes or mutual funds in which the Fund has invested can trade at a premium or at a discount and this might affect the performance of the Fund.
