General risks
  • ​The value of the Funds and the income from them is not guaranteed and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you originally invested.
  • ​Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
  • ​You should note that your tax treatment in relation to any investments held outside an ISA will depend on your individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. Governments may change the tax rules which affect you or the Funds in which you have invested.
  • ​If you invest through a third party provider you are advised to consult them directly as charges, performance and terms and conditions may differ materially.
  • Third party data is believed to be reliable, but its completeness and accuracy is not guaranteed.
Specific risks
  • This fund is designed to be used only as one component in several in a diversified investment portfolio. Investors should consider carefully the proportion of their portfolio invested into this fund.
  • If a fund is a specialist country-specific or geographical region fund, the investment carries greater risk than a fund diversified across more countries.
  • If a Fund’s management charge is taken from its capital, then this may allow more income to be paid, however, it may also restrict capital growth or even result in capital erosion over time.
General information

Funds incur costs as a necessary part of buying and selling the underlying investments, these are otherwise known as portfolio transaction costs, and include charges such as broker commission and Stamp Duty Reserve tax (SDRT).
