Key risks when investing
Investment risk: The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Lower volatility may result in a lower return relative to the reference index.
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 markets risk: Investments in emerging markets are by their nature higher risk and potentially more volatile than those inherent in some established markets
