Important information

Investments can go down as well as up and investors can get back less than they originally invested. If you are unsure if a particular investment trust is suitable for you, you should seek independent financial advice before making any investment decision.

Before you choose an investment, make sure you understand its aims and risks. You should ensure you have read the Fund Factsheets andKey Investor Information Document (KIID)/Key Information Document (KID) beforehand. These are available on our website.

Investments trusts may borrow to finance further investment (gearing). The use of gearing is likely to lead to volatility in the Net Asset Value (NAV), meaning that a relatively small movement down or up, will result in a magnified movements in the same direction, of that NAV. This may mean that you could get back nothing at all.
