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 may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amounts originally invested. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of any overseas investments to rise or fall. 
  • A failure of a deposit institution or an issuer of a money market instrument could create losses
  • The counterparty to a derivative or other contractual agreement or synthetic financial product could become unable to honour its commitments to the fund, potentially creating a partial or total loss for the fund. 
  • A decline in the financial health of an issuer could cause the value of its bonds to fall or become worthless.
  • The fund can be exposed to different currencies. Changes in foreign exchange rates could create losses. 
  • Emerging markets generally carry greater political, legal, counterparty and operational risk.
  • Equity prices fluctuate daily, based on many factors including general, economic, industry or company news.  
  • High yield bonds (normally lower rated or unrated) generally carry greater market, credit and liquidity risk.
  • A rise in interest rates generally causes bond prices to fall.
  • In difficult market conditions, the fund may not be able to sell a security for full value or at all. This could affect performance and could cause the fund to defer or suspend redemptions of its shares.
  • Failures at service providers could lead to disruptions of fund operations or losses.
