Investments in the Fund carry risks, including possible loss of principal. Special risks may be associated with investments in emerging markets, including currency fluctuations, illiquidity, volatility, and political and economic risks. Investments in small capitalization companies may increase the risk of greater price fluctuations. Funds investing in bonds have the same interest rate, inflation, and credit risks that are associated with the underlying bonds. The principal value of bonds will fluctuate relative to changes in interest rates, decreasing when interest rates rise. Investments in the Fund are not insured, nor are they deposits of or guaranteed by a bank or any other entity. If you are in any doubt about the risks involved in investing in the Company or the suitability of you investing in the Company, you should consult your stockbroker, bank manager, solicitor, accountant or other independent financial adviser.
Prices for Shares may fall as well as rise and the return upon an investment will therefore necessarily be variable. Changes in exchange rates may have an adverse effect on the effective price per Share or income. Investors should also be aware that the difference at any one time between the subscription and redemption prices of the Shares means that an investment in the Company should be viewed as medium to long term.
There is no guarantee that the Fund will meet its investment objectives.
Class I shares may not be available to all investors. Minimum investments for the I share class may be higher than those for other classes.
