Important Risk Warning:
  • Investors should not only base on content below alone to make investment decisions. Investors should refer to fund's offering documents and read carefully the summary of the key features and risks specific to this fund stated in the fund factsheet prepared by the relevant fund house, before making any investment decision.
  • Unit Trusts are investment products and some may involve derivatives. The investment decision is yours but you should not invest in the Unit Trusts unless the intermediary who sells it to you has explained to you that the product is suitable for you having regard to your financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives.
  • Unit Trusts are not equivalent to time deposits.
  • Investment involves risks. Past performance is no guide to future performance of the funds. Value of the investments and the income/dividend generated can fluctuate and is not guaranteed.
  • In the worst case scenario, the value of the unit trusts may be worth substantially less than the original amount you have invested (and in an extreme case could be worth nothing).
  • The funds invest in debt securities and are subject to interest rate, credit/counterparty, downgrading, market, currency, volatility, liquidity, regulatory and political risks.
  • If the funds invest in non-investment grade debt securities, distressed debt securities, defaulted debt securities, emerging market debt securities, mortgage and asset-backed securities, debt securities in a limited number of geographical market(s) or sector(s), the funds will be subject to a higher degree of risk.
  • If the funds invest in derivatives, additional risks will be involved, which may be different from those associated with investing in bonds, and the funds may be subject to higher volatility.
