Investing in Schroder European Real Estate Investment Trust

What are the risks?

Past performance is not a guide to future performance and may not be repeated.

The value of investments, and the income from them, can rise and fall and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.

Companies which invest in a smaller number of assets carry more risk than those spread across a larger number of assets.

The Company may invest solely in property located in one country or region. This can carry more risk than investments spread over a number of countries or regions.

The Company may borrow money to invest in further investments, this is known as gearing. Gearing will increase returns if the value of the assets purchased increase in value by more than the cost of borrowing, or reduce returns if they fail to do so.

The fund holds investments denominated in currencies other than sterling, changes in exchange rates will cause the value of these investments, and the income from them, to rise or fall.

The dividend yield is an estimate and is not guaranteed.

Non-Mainstream Pooled Investments (NMPI) Status

The Company currently conducts its affairs so that its shares can be recommended by IFAs to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the FCA's rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The Company's shares are excluded from the FCA's restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products because they are shares in an investment trust.

Follow us.

Please remember that the value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amounts originally invested.
