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.
Investments in real estate are relatively illiquid and more difficult to realise than equities or bonds.
Yields may vary and are not guaranteed.
The use of gearing is likely to lead to volatility in the Net Asset Value ("NAV") meaning that a relatively small movement either down or up in the value of the Company's total assets will result in a magnified movement in the same direction of that NAV.
There is no guarantee that the market price of shares in a UK Real Estate Investment Trust such as SREIT will fully reflect their underlying NAV.
The value of real estate is a matter of a valuer's opinion rather than fact.
This UK Real Estate Investment Trust should be considered only as part of a balanced portfolio, of which it should not form a disproportionate part.
Schroders is a world-class asset manager operating from 37 locations across Europe, the Americas, Asia, the Middle East and Africa.
