Risks

Counterparty Risk: The insolvency of any institutions providing services such as safekeeping of assets or acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, may expose the Share Class to financial loss.

Credit Risk: The issuer of a financial asset held within the fund may not pay income or repay capital to the fund when due. If a financial institution is unable to meet its financial obligations, its financial assets may be subject to a write down in value or converted (i.e. “bail-in”) by relevant authorities to rescue the institution.

Currency Risk: The fund invests in other currencies. Changes in exchange rates will therefore affect the value of the investment.

Emerging Markets Risk: Emerging markets are generally more sensitive to economic and political conditions than developed markets. Other factors include greater 'Liquidity Risk', restrictions on investment or transfer of assets and failed/delayed delivery of securities or payments to the fund.

Liquidity Risk: Lower liquidity means there are insufficient buyers or sellers to allow the fund to sell or buy investments readily.
