  • Derivative risk – the Fund may use derivatives to reduce costs and/or the overall risk of the Fund (this is also known as Efficient Portfolio Management or “EPM”). Derivatives involve a level of risk, however, for EPM they should not increase the overall riskiness of the Fund.
  • Currency (FX) Risk – The Fund can be exposed to different currencies and movements in foreign exchange rates can cause the value of investments to fall as well as rise.
  • Share Class Hedging Risk – The share class hedging process can cause the value of investments to fall due to market movements, rebalancing considerations and, in extreme circumstances, default by the counterparty providing the hedging contract
  • Pricing risk – Price movements in financial assets mean the value of assets can fall as well as rise, with this risk typically amplified in more volatile market conditions.
  • Counterparty Default Risk – The risk of losses due to the default of a counterparty e.g. on a derivatives contract or a custodian that is safeguarding the Fund’s assets.
  • ESG Equity Data – The Fund uses data from third parties (which may include providers for research, reports, screenings, ratings and/or analysis such as index providers and consultants) and that information or data may be incomplete, inaccurate or inconsistent.
  • Stock Connect Risk – Stock Connect is governed by regulations which are subject to change. Trading limitations and restrictions on foreign ownership may constrain the Fund’s ability to pursue its investment strategy.
  • ESG and Sustainability – Investments are selected or excluded on both financial and non-financial criteria. The Fund’s performance may differ from the broader market or other Funds that do not utilise ESG/Sustainability criteria when selecting investments.
  • Charges from capital – Some or all of the Fund’s charges are taken from capital. Should there not be sufficient capital growth in the Fund this may cause capital erosion.
