Additional information

    Remember, the value of investments is not guaranteed - you may not get back the amount you invested, and any income received from them can fall as well as rise. This could also result from 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 should be considered as medium to long-term holdings of least 5 years.

    Economies in emerging markets generally are heavily dependent upon international trade and, accordingly, have been and may continue to be affected adversely by trade barriers, exchange controls, managed adjustments in relative currency values and other protectionist measures imposed or negotiated by the countries with which they trade.
