Investments in general involve some degree of risk, including the risk of capital loss. The services, securities and investments discussed in this document may not be available to or suitable for all investors. Investors should make their own investment decisions based upon their own financial objectives and financial resources and, if in any doubt, should seek advice from an investment advisor. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance and an investor may not get back the amount originally invested. Where investment is made in currencies other than the investor’s base currency, movements in exchange rates will have an effect on the value, either favourable or unfavourable. Levels and bases for taxation may change.

Furthermore, the marketability of these shares is often restricted.
