On accessing the Close Brothers Asset Management website, you are aware of the following investment risks applicable to all Close Funds:
PAST PERFORMANCE RISK-Past performance, though extensively used in analyzing investments, is not a reliable indicator of future returns.
RISK OF PERMANENT CAPITAL LOSS-The risk that investments may fall in value permanently with little or no expectation of recovery, including the possibility of total loss of the amount invested. Typically, this applies to individual securities.
RISK OF REDUCED INCOME-The risk that income derived from investments falls significantly and no longer fulfils its objective in a portfolio with a corresponding fall in the capital value if realised.
VOLATILITY RISK-The risk of a decline in the value of a group of investments due to market fluctuations. Typically investors measure this risk over short timescales.
INFLATION RISK-The risk that the growth of investments does not keep pace with inflation over the longer term, i.e. a reduction in the real purchasing power of one's capital.
LIQUIDITY RISK-The risk that an investor cannot gain immediate access to capital.
TAX RISK-The risk that the tax regime generally affecting returns, a particular asset or a specific tax efficient scheme may change or be removed with consequent impact on investment returns and strategies.
CURRENCY RISK-The risk that movement in rates of foreign exchange may cause the value of investments and/or income derived from them to fluctuate independently of the value of the underlying asset and may amplify losses or impact gains when translated into the investor’s base currency.
BENCHMARK RISK-The risk that investments do not beat a specific benchmark over the longer term, e.g. the failure to match the returns of a given equity index, bond index, or a blend of these.
