Key Investor Information Documents
Philosophy and Process Documents
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 exposure to a single market and currency may increase share price movements.
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 a foreign currency and changes in the rate 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.
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 at www.bailliegifford.com
