Things you should know

It's important to understand that the value of investments, and any income received from them, can fall as well as rise. A return on your investment isn't 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, for at least five years.
