Products and Services:
The information contained herein is current at the date of publication, but is subject to change without notice. Schroders has expressed its own views and opinions on this website, and these may change.

This website is not directed at you if we are prohibited by any law of any jurisdiction from making the information on this site available to you and is not intended for any use that would be contrary to local law or regulation. None of the information contained on this website is intended to constitute any offer to sell or an invitation or solicitation of an offer to buy any product or service by Schroders and must not be relied upon in connection with any investment decision. Products or services mentioned on this site are subject to legal and regulatory requirements in applicable jurisdictions and may not be available in all jurisdictions. Accordingly persons are required to inform themselves of and observe any such restrictions. Nothing in this website should be construed as investment, tax, legal or other advice.

Risk Warning:
Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. The value of investments and the income of any financial instruments mentioned in the website may fall as well as rise, and investors may get back less than the amount originally invested. Fluctuations in exchange rates may have a positive or an adverse effect on the value of foreign-currency denominated securities and financial instruments. Certain investments, in particular hedge funds, venture capital funds and emerging markets, involve an above-average degree of risk and should be seen as long-term in nature. Derivative instruments and warrants involve a high degree of risk. It may be difficult for an investor to deal in derivative investments or to obtain reliable information about their value. In the case of Over the Counter Derivatives, the investment may only be sold back to the original counterparty from which it was purchased. A warrant involves a high degree of gearing (leveraging) so that a small movement in the price of the security to which the warrant relates may result in a disproportionately large fall or rise in the price of the warrant. Schroders' may hold positions in investments described in the website.

Tax:
The investment products and services described in the website may have tax consequences. Any tax reliefs referred to are those currently available and their value depends on the circumstances of the individual investor. You acknowledge that levels and bases of taxation may change, and that Schroders does not provides tax advice. You should consult your own tax advisor in order to understand the tax consequences of the products and services described in the website.
