Risk Statement

Please remember the value of your investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and you may get back less than the amount you originally invested. The value of your fund may be less than you paid in. All investments carry an element of risk, which may differ significantly. If you are unsure as to the suitability of any particular investment or product, you should seek professional financial advice. Tax rules may change in the future and taxation will depend on your personal circumstances. Charges may be subject to change in the future.

Before initiating a transfer you should seek professional advice on the merits of the proposed transfer that is specific to your circumstances. Your existing pension may have valuable benefits which you might lose when you transfer.
