Important information - If you’d like to invest in or find out more about these funds then view their factsheets below.
Some of these funds invest in overseas markets and so the value of investments can be affected by changes in currency exchange rates. Currency hedging is used to substantially reduce the risk of losses from unfavourable exchange rate movements on holdings in currencies that differ from the dealing currency. Hedging also has the effect of limiting the potential for currency gains to be made. Some of these funds invest in emerging markets which can be more volatile than other more developed markets. Some of these funds use derivative instruments for investment purposes, which may expose the fund to a higher degree of risk and can cause investments to experience larger than average price fluctuations. Some of these funds invest in bonds and there is a risk that the issuers of bonds may not be able to repay the money they have borrowed or make interest payments. When interest rates rise, bonds may fall in value. Rising interest rates may cause the value of your investment to fall. You must ensure that any fund you choose to invest in is suitable for your own personal circumstances. You should regularly reassess the suitability of your investments to ensure they continue to meet your attitude to risk and investment goals.
