performance. If you have any doubts about the suitability of an
investment, please contact your financial adviser.
- The value of your initial (capital) investment and the income
arising from it may fall as well as rise and you may not get back
the amount you originally invested. This difference will usually be
a result of differing buying and selling prices for the fund on the
days that you buy and/or sell. Equity investments carry potential
for greater returns over the longer term. The volatility of these
returns can also be greater.
- If the funds hold securities denominated in a currency other
than sterling, changes in exchange rates may affect the value of

capital, distributable income will be increased at the expense of
capital which will either be eroded or future growth
Investors should read this information and the relevant
Simplified Prospectus or Key Investor Information Document before
investing in unit trusts/OEICs.
Investment in the securities of smaller and unquoted companies
can involve greater risk than is customarily associated with
investment in larger, more established companies. In particular,
smaller companies often have limited product lines, markets or
financial resources and may be dependent for their management on a
smaller number of key individuals. In addition, the market for
securities in smaller companies is often less liquid than that for
securities in larger companies, bringing with it potential
difficulties in acquiring, valuing and disposing of such
securities. Proper information for determining their value or the
risks to which they are exposed may also not be available.
Some funds will often carry greater risks in return for higher
potential rewards. Specialist funds, which invest in specialist
markets or small sectors of industry, are likely to carry higher
risks than most general funds. Investment in technology related
stocks can be more volatile than investment in more established
companies. Above average price movements can be expected.
If you start making regular monthly investments in order to save
for a specific objective, you should regularly review whether these
investments will be sufficient to achieve your objective. You may
not achieve your objective if you do not continue to invest
regularly with a sufficient amount or if your investments do not
Unit Trust Information

more volatile than those of larger companies.
Open Ended Investment Company (OEIC) Information
The OEIC may invest in smaller companies such as those quoted on
the Alternative Investment Market (AIM). Investments in smaller

Hedge Fund Information
Northglen Aggressive (the "Fund") is an unregulated collective
investment scheme, the promotion of which in the United Kingdom is
restricted by Section 238 of the Financial Services and Markets
2000 (the "Act"). Shares may not be offered or sold in the United
Kingdom other than to investors of a kind described in the
Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Promotion of Collective
Investment Schemes) (Exemptions) Order 2001, namely: firms
authorised to carry on investment business under the Act; and
institutional and other investors who have experience of
alternative, unregulated investments such as hedge funds.
Distribution of shares in the Fund may be restricted in other
jurisdictions and you should satisfy yourself of investment, tax
and other relevant requirements of the jurisdiction in which you
are domiciled before making any investment. In particular, the
Funds have not been registered under the United States Securities
Act 1933 or the Investment Company Act 1940 but shares may be sold
under a private placement to "qualified purchasers".
Investment is limited to certain types of investors and hedge
funds are not generally considered suitable for private investors.

jurisdiction and individual circumstances. Any tax reliefs
mentioned, such as for PEPs, ISAs or VCTs, are those currently

(up until April 2009). The government reviewed the savings scheme
in 2006 and the favourable tax treatment of ISAs has been extended
indefinitely. The current limit for ISA investment is £20,000 per
