Risks

  • Please remember the value of an investment and any income from it may fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may get back less than you invest.
  • Although there is no fixed term, you should consider an ISA or unit trust investment to be medium to long term, ideally five years or more.
  • The tax efficiency of ISAs is based on current rules. The current tax situation may not be maintained. The benefit of the tax treatment depends on individual circumstances.
  • The fund may invest overseas. Changes in exchange rates between currencies may cause the value of an investment and the level of any income to rise or fall.
  • Each trust has its own risks detailed in the individual 'Key Investor Information' documents.
