Investment risks

Visitors to this website should be aware that all investment in financial markets involves risk to the capital invested. The value of an investment can fall as well as rise, and investors may get back less than they originally invested. Past performance is not a guide to the future. Investments may bear currency risk, where changes in exchange rates can affect the value of the investment. In addition there are risks attached to investments that are concentrated in one type of asset or geographical region, where a fall in the market value of the asset class or region can cause a disproportionate fall in the value of the overall portfolio. Investors should inform themselves about the risks associated with any investment they are considering. We recommend that investors seek professional advice before making an investment decision.
