The following risk factors should be considered before making your investment decision.
Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future 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 your investment.
Where charges are taken wholly or partly out of a fund’s capital, distributable income will be increased at the expense of capital which will either be eroded or future growth constrained.
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 appreciate sufficiently.
Unit Trust Information
The unit trusts may invest in smaller companies such as those quoted on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM). Investments in smaller company stocks may be less liquid and their performance 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 company stocks may be less liquid and their performance more volatile than those of larger companies.
Current tax levels and tax treatment will depend on your jurisdiction and individual circumstances. Any tax reliefs mentioned, such as for PEPs, ISAs or VCTs, are those currently available and may therefore change. Their value depends on the circumstances of the individual investor.
ISAs were introduced in April 1999 for an initial 10-year period (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 ISA investment limit for the 2019/2020 tax year is £20,000.
