Risk Considerations

  • The capital is not guaranteed.
  • Investments denominated in a currency other than that of the share-class may not be hedged. The market movements between those currencies will impact the share-class.
  • Where the fund (or the manager) holds a significant percentage of the shares of one or more companies, it may be difficult to sell those shares quickly. It may affect the value of the fund and, in extreme market conditions, its ability to meet redemption requests upon demand.
  • The fund will not hedge its market risk in a down cycle. The value of the fund will move similarly to the markets.
  • The fund may hold large positions in a particular investment and if market declines or the issuer defaults, then the fund will be adversely affected.
  • The fund may hold indirect short exposure in anticipation of a decline of prices of these exposures or increase of interest rate.
  • Changes in China's political, legal, economic or tax policies could cause losses or higher costs for the fund.
