What are the risks?

There are a number of risks involved in investing in Schroder Global Cities Real Estate.

  • When considering fund performance, past performance should not be used as a guide to the future
  • This investment could fall as well as rise in value and your money is at risk
  • This fund invests in a smaller number of real estate companies. A smaller number can be riskier than an equivalent fund that spreads the risk across a higher number of companies. This also applies to funds that focus on specific industries compared with those that spread over a number of different industries
  • The fund invests globally, so changes in foreign exchange rates could have a negative impact on performance
  • Investments in smaller companies can be less liquid than investments in larger companies and price swings may therefore be greater than in larger company funds
  • The share prices of companies can be impacted by many factors, including the state of the company, the industry and the economy
  • In difficult market conditions, the fund may not be able to sell off stocks, which could affect performance and cause the fund to defer or suspend redemptions of its shares. Failures at service providers could lead to disruptions of fund operations or losses
  • The fund uses financial tools called derivatives. A derivative may not perform as expected and could create losses greater than the cost of the derivative. If its counterparty becomes unable to honour its commitments, it could create a loss. When used for leverage, derivatives may cause above-average volatility and risk of loss
  • The way in which this fund invests is likely to differ significantly from the broader market index, which for the purpose of comparisons should only be used as a reference.

Is this fund suitable for me?

  • I’m looking to invest in real estate companies globally
  • I’m comfortable with the use of derivative contracts, which derive their value from stocks
  • I expect to invest for the long term (five years or more).
