Risk considerations

The price of shares and the income from them may fluctuate upwards or downwards and cannot be guaranteed.

Property-based pooled vehicles, such as the Fund, invest in real property, the value of which is generally a matter of a valuer’s opinion.

It may be difficult to deal in the shares of the Fund or to sell them at a reasonable price because the underlying property may not be readily saleable, thus creating liquidity risk. Shares can be purchased or redeemed upon application to the Authorised Corporate Director of the Fund, Schroder Unit Trusts Limited.

A potential conflict with the Manager’s duty to the shareholder may arise where a transaction is effected for the Fund in the units of another fund(s) managed by the same Manager or an Associate of the Manager. However, the Manager will ensure that such transactions are effected on terms which are not materially less favourable than if the potential conflict had not existed.
