Risk considerations

Capital is not guaranteed. It is important to remember that the value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and is not guaranteed.

  • Exchange rate risk: Investing in assets denominated in a currency other than that of the investor’s own currency perspective exposes the value of the investment to exchange rate fluctuations.
  • Emerging market risk: Emerging economies typically exhibit higher levels of investment risk. Markets are not always well regulated or efficient and investments can be affected by reduced liquidity.
  • Equity risk: Strategies that invest in securities listed on a stock exchange or market could be affected by general changes in the stock market. The value of investments can go down as well as up due to equity markets movements.
