The value of financial derivative instruments are highly sensitive and may result in losses in excess of the amount invested by the Sub-Fund.
The fund relies on other parties to fulfill certain services, investments or transactions. If these parties become insolvent, it may expose the fund to financial loss.
There may be an insufficient number of buyers or sellers which may affect the funds ability to buy or sell securities.
Investment in China A-Shares via Shanghai-Hong Kong and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect programs may also entail additional risks, such as risks linked to the ownership of shares.
The derivative strategy aims to increase the income paid to investors, but there is potential for the fund to suffer losses.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. Returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and investors may lose all or a substantial portion of his or her investment.
The value of the investments and the income from them will vary and there can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its investment objectives.
Investments may be in a variety of currencies and therefore changes in rates of exchange between currencies may cause the value of investments to decrease or increase. Furthermore, the value of investments may be adversely affected by fluctuations in exchange rates between the investor’s reference currency and the base currency of the investments.
