Important Information

Specific investments may have additional risks and commitments. You must ensure that you read all documentation regarding any investment you choose to make such as key features and further information brochures. Please remember past performance is not a guide to future performance. You may not get back the amount you invest. The value of your investment and any income from it may fall as well as rise.

Laws and tax rules may change in the future without notice. The information here is our understanding in September 2016. This information takes no account of your personal circumstances which may have an impact on tax treatment. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of overseas investments to go down as well as up. Investment 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, in the value of a trust’s assets will result in a magnified movement, in the same direction, of that NAV. This may mean that you could get back nothing at all.
