Diversification does not protect you against a loss in a particular market; however it allows you to spread that risk across various asset classes.

Past performance is not a guarantee of future performance. The value of the investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and an investor may not get back the amount invested. There are special risk considerations associated with investing in emerging country securities including (1) restrictions on foreign investment, (2) currency fluctuations, (3) potential price volatility and lesser liquidity of shares, (4) political and economic risks, (5) settlement systems may be less well organized and less developed. There are also varying levels of government supervision and regulation of exchanges, financial institutions and issuers in various countries. In addition, accounting, auditing, financial and other reporting standards are not equivalent to those of more developed countries, and therefore less information may be available than in more developed countries.

Portfolios that specialize in a particular region or market sector are more risky than those which hold a very broad spread of investments. Where portfolio concentration is in one sector it is subject to greater risk and volatility than other portfolios that are more diversified and the value of its shares may be more substantially affected by economic events.

These investments are designed for investors who understand and are willing to accept these risks. Performance may be volatile, and an investor could lose all or a substantial portion of his or her investment.
