Overseas Enquiries

Access to the information contained on this website may be restricted by laws and regulations applicable to the jurisdiction of the user. Accordingly, users must ensure that their use of this information and any investment decision taken as a result does not contravene any such restrictions. The information on this website is directed at investors in the UK and does not constitute an offer to sell or invitation to buy securities in any jurisdiction where such an offer or invitation is unlawful, or where the person making such an offer is not qualified or authorised to do so.

Sales Restrictions

This website contains information covering different investment funds/services managed and registered in different jurisdictions. As such, laws and regulations applicable to the user may restrict access to the information contained herein. The information in this website does not constitute either an offer to sell, a solicitation, or an offer to buy in a country in which this type of offer or solicitation is unlawful, or in which a person making such an offer or solicitation does not hold the necessary authorisation to do so. It is also not directed at investors, in those cases where the law prohibits this type of offer or solicitation from being made. Accordingly, persons accessing the information on this website are responsible themselves for ascertaining the legal requirements, which would affect their acquisition of any investment, including any foreign exchange control requirements.

Offshore Funds: OEICs: Guernsey Class B

Please note that the funds/services described in this section of the website are not authorised or recognised for sale to the public in the UK.

These funds in respect of which information is provided on this website are unrecognised collective investment schemes ("UCIS") for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 of the United Kingdom (the "Act"). The promotion of these funds to, and access to this website by, persons in the United Kingdom is accordingly restricted by law. Accordingly authorised persons in the United Kingdom may only issue this information to other persons authorised to carry on investment business in the United Kingdom. The information on this website does not constitute a solicitation to any person in the United Kingdom or elsewhere to whom it is unlawful to make such a solicitation

USA

None of the funds listed herein are registered in the United States under the Securities Act of 1933 or the Investment Company Act of 1940. In particular, none of the services or securities mentioned in this website are being offered in the United States or to US persons and units/shares of the investment funds listed herein may not be publicly sold, offered or delivered to US residents or US citizens.

Risk Warnings

Interests in the Funds will be offered and sold only pursuant to the prospectus of the Funds and investment into the Funds may be made solely on the basis of the information and opinions contained in that document (which may be different from the information and opinions contained in this document). Any analysis of potential trading strategies is used purely for illustrative purposes and does not represent a recommendation to buy or sell and does not represent investment advice. An investment in the Funds carries a high degree of risk and there can be no assurance that the Funds' objectives will be met.

The value of investments and the income therein can go down as well as up (which may be caused by exchange rate fluctuations). Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. The law may restrict distribution of this document in certain jurisdictions; therefore persons in whose possession this document comes should be mindful of this and observe any such restrictions.

An application for shares in any of the investment funds referred to on this website should only be made having read fully the relevant prospectus. It is your responsibility to read such prospectus and by making an application it will be deemed representative that you have read such prospectus and agree to be bound by its contents.

You should note that, if you choose to invest in any fund described or referred to in this website, your capital will be at risk and you may therefore lose some, or all, of any amount that you choose to invest.

Past performance should not be seen as an indication of future performance.

Stockmarket and currency movements may cause the value of an investment and the income from it to fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested.

The levels of, and reliefs from, taxation are subject to change. Tax reliefs and their value will depend on your individual circumstances. If investors are in any doubt about the taxation consequences of making an investment decision they should seek advice from their financial adviser.

Careful reference should be made to the further fund and product-specific risk factors which are laid out in the relevant material within this website. Past performance is not a guide to what might happen in the future. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up so you may get back less than you invested. For investments in overseas markets, the return may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations.

Before making an investment decision, careful reference should be made to the fund-specific risk warnings which you will find within the Simplified Prospectus and Key Investor Information Documents.
