All investments carry risk. Different investments carry different levels of risk, depending on the investment strategy and the underlying assets. Generally, the higher the potential return of an investment, the greater the risk. The risks of investing in this Fund include:
Investment risk: The Fund has exposure to share markets. The risk of an investment in the Fund is higher than an investment in a typical bank account or fixed income investment. Amounts distributed to unitholders may fluctuate, as may the Fund’s unit price. The unit price may vary by material amounts, even over short periods of time, including during the period between a redemption request or application for units being made and the time the redemption unit price or application unit price is calculated.
Market risk: Share markets can be and have been volatile, and have the potential to fall by large amounts over short periods of time. The investments of the Fund are likely to have a broad correlation with share markets in general, and hence poor performance or losses in domestic and/or global share markets are likely to negatively impact the overall performance of the Fund.
Security specific risk: Securities and the companies that issue them are exposed to a range of factors that affect their individual performance. These factors may cause an investment’s return to differ from that of the broader market. The Fund may therefore underperform the market and/or its peers due to its security specific exposures.
More information on the risks of investing in the Fund is contained in the Product Disclosure Statement, which should be considered before deciding to invest in the Fund.
