Please remember that the value of investments, and any income received from them can fall as well as rise, is not guaranteed and you may not get back the amount you invested. This could also happen as a result of changes in currency exchange rates, particularly where overseas securities are held or where investments are converted from one currency to another. We always recommend that any Investments held should be viewed as a medium to long-term investment, at least five years.

You should carefully consider the special risks of investing in emerging market securities. These economics also have been, and may continue to be, affected adversely by economic conditions in the countries in which they trade.

In addition to offering an advisory and execution-only service to investors, HSBC Expat also acts as distributor to the HSBC Global Investment Funds and HSBC World Selection Portfolios.
