3. Risk Factors
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. The value of investments and the income therefrom may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the original amount invested. You are not guaranteed to make money from your investments and you may lose money. Exchange rates may cause the value of overseas investments and the income therefore to rise and fall.
This Website is published solely for informational purposes and has no regard to the specific investment objectives, financial situation or particular needs of any person. Information contained herein is believed to be reliable but no warranty is given as to its accuracy or completeness and views and opinions, whilst given in good faith, are subject to change without notice. Opinions expressed are our present opinions only, reflecting prevailing market conditions and certain assumptions (which may not prove to be valid), and are subject to change.
The information contained in this Website is not intended to constitute, and should not be construed as, investment advice. Potential investors in the funds that are described, or referred to, in this Website should seek their own independent financial advice.

If you choose to invest in any fund described or referred to in this Website, your capital will be at risk and you may therefore lose some or all of any amount that you choose to invest.
