• The value of investments and the income from them can fall and investors may get back less than the amount invested.
• Past performance is not a guide to future results.
• Investment in the Company may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 5 years.
• The Company may borrow to finance further investment (gearing). The use of gearing is likely to lead to volatility in the Net
Asset Value (NAV) meaning that any movement in the value of the company’s assets will result in a magnified movement in
the NAV.
• The Company may accumulate investment positions which represent more than normal trading volumes which may make it
difficult to realise investments and may lead to volatility in the market price of the Company’s shares.
• The Company may charge expenses to capital which may erode the capital value of the investment.
• There is no guarantee that the market price of the Company’s shares will fully reflect their underlying Net Asset Value.
• As with all stock exchange investments the value of the Company’s shares purchased will immediately fall by the difference
between the buying and selling prices, the bid-offer spread. If trading volumes fall, the bid-offer spread can widen.
• Yields are estimated figures and may fluctuate, there are no guarantees that future dividends will match or exceed historic
dividends and certain investors may be subject to further tax on dividends.
• Certain trusts treat the generation of income as a higher priority than capital growth; such trusts may deduct part or all
of their management charge from capital. This will increase the amount of income available but at the expense of capital
• Investing globally can bring additional returns and diversify risk. However, currency exchange rate fluctuations may have a
positive or negative impact on the value of your investment.
• Specialist trusts which invest in small markets or sectors of industry are likely to be more volatile than more diversified trusts.
• The Company’s investments may include unquoted and/or private equity investments which are not publicly traded or
freely marketable and may therefore prove difficult to redeem. In addition, the potential volatility of investments in unquoted securities may increase the risk to the value of the investment.
