The value of the Trust and the income from it is not guaranteed and may fall as well as rise. You may get back less than you originally invested.

Not all the investments in this portfolio are made in Sterling, so exchange rates could affect the value of and income from your investment.

Where the trust invests in assets which are denominated in currencies other than the base currency then currency exchange rate movements may cause the value of investments to fall as well as rise.

The trust may use gearing as part of its investment strategy. If the trust utilises its ability gear, the profits and losses incurred by the trust can be greater than those of a trust that does not use gearing.

If a fund is a specialist country-specific or geographic regional fund, the investment carries greater risk than a more internationally diversified portfolio.
