The value of the Funds and the income from them is not guaranteed and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than
you originally invested.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
Third party data is believed to be reliable, but its completeness and accuracy is not guaranteed.
If a trust's portfolio is concentrated towards a particular country or geographical region, the investment carries greater risk than a portfolio diversified across more countries.
Higher yieldings bonds are issued by companies that may have greater difficulty in repaying their financial obligations. High yield bonds are not traded as frequently as government bonds and therefore may be more difficult to trade in distressed markets.
This trust is suitable to be used as one component in several in a diversified investment portfolio. Investors should consider carefully the proportion of their portfolio invested into this trust.
Active management techniques that have worked well in normal market conditions could prove ineffective or detrimental at other times.
The trust could lose money if a counterparty with which it trades becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the trust.
The return on your investment is directly related to the prevailing market price of the trust’s shares, which will trade at a varying discount (or premium) relative to the value of the underlying assets of the trust. As a result losses (or gains) may be higher or lower than those of the trust’s assets.
The trust may use gearing as part of its investment strategy. If the trust utilises its ability to gear, the profits and losses incured by the trust can be greater than those of a trust that does not use gearing.
All or part of the trust's management fee is taken from its capital. While this allows more income to be paid, it may also restrict capital growth or even result in capital erosion over time.
