What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments.

  • The Fund invests mainly in a diversified portfolio of U.S. equity, equity-related and debt securities. Such securities have historically been subject to price movements that may occur suddenly due to equity market- and bond market-specific factors. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate over time.
  • The Fund may distribute income gross of expenses. Whilst this might allow more income to be distributed, it may also have the effect of reducing capital.
  • Other significant risks include: credit risk, currency risk, liquidity risk.
