1. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of your investment may go down as well as up, and you may not get back the amount you invested.

    The Manager does not provide any guarantee either with respect to the capital or the return of a portfolio. Performance is based on NAV to NAV calculations with income reinvestments done on the ex-div date. Performance is calculated for the portfolio and the individual investor performance may differ as a result of initial fees, actual investment date, date of reinvestment and dividend withholding tax.

    Where performance is shown gross of fees it does not reflect the deduction of investment management fees. The returns will be reduced by the management fees and any other expenses incurred in the management of the account. For example a fund paying a 0.50% annual fee, with a given rate of 5.0% annualised over a 10-year period would result in a net-of-fee return of 4.50% p.a. The Worldwide Emerging Markets Leading Companies, Worldwide Global Alpha and Worldwide US Equity Growth Funds show gross performance figures for their C classes only.
