Investment markets can go down as well as up and market conditions can change rapidly. The value of an investment in the Fund, and any income from it, can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested.
The specific risks associated with the Fund include:
Custody of assets involves a risk of loss if a custodian becomes insolvent or breaches duties of care.
The Fund’s concentrated portfolio relative to similar funds may result in large movements in the share price in the short term.
The Fund has exposure to foreign currencies and changes in the rates of exchange will cause the value of any investment, and income from it, to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount invested.
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG)
The Fund invests according to sustainable and responsible investment criteria which means it cannot invest in certain sectors and companies. The universe of available investments will be more limited than other funds that do not apply such criteria/ exclusions, therefore the Fund may have different returns than a fund which has no such restrictions. Data used to apply the criteria may be provided by third party sources and is based on backward-looking analysis and the subjective nature of non-financial criteria means a wide variety of outcomes are possible. There is a risk that data provided may not adequately address the underlying detail around material non-financial considerations.
The Fund’s share price can be volatile due to movements in the prices of the underlying holdings and the basis on which the Fund is priced.
Further details of the risks associated with investing in the Fund can be found in the Key Investor Information Document (KIID), or the Prospectus. Copies of both the KIID and Prospectus are available on this website (www.bailligifford.com).
