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.

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

Derivatives Risk: Derivatives are highly sensitive to changes in the value of the asset on which they are based and can increase the size of losses and gains, resulting in greater fluctuations in the value of the fund. The impact to the fund can be greater where derivatives are used in an extensive or complex way.

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.

Equity Risk: The value of equities and equity-related securities can be affected by daily stock market movements. Other influential factors include political, economic news, company earnings and significant corporate events.

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