There are a number of risks associated with investing and opening an Account that are outside Strowz's control. Whilst not exhaustive, the following summary should assist you to understand some of the general risks of investing:
- The value of your invested capital may go down as well as up and any capital that you invest is at risk. A fall in value of risk aversive investments may result in its value being lower than the amount you invested, and you may lose the entire amount invested.
- The value of your investments may be subject to foreign exchange fluctuations.
- There could be risks relating to the reliability of dealing, settlement and custody practices.
- Prices of investments in, or linked to, emerging markets can be significantly more volatile than those in developed markets and the risks in respect of foreign exchange fluctuations, and less reliable dealing, settlement and custody practices may be greater than those in developed markets.
- For each Portfolio we try to ensure that the liquidity profile of the investments in the Portfolio is appropriate and employ a liquidity risk management process to ensure investors can redeem their investments. Nevertheless, there may be circumstances where it is not possible to sell all or part of the portfolios at a given point in time, or the price may be lower than previously reported. This is beyond our control and could be due to the suspension of securities or of a market, or concerns relating to the financial stability of an issuer of a security.
- If the value of your investment does not keep up with the rate of inflation, it will have less buying power in the future.
- Past performance is not an indicator of future performance.
