Nothing contained on the fundinfo website constitutes financial, legal, tax or other advice, nor should any investment or any other decisions be made solely based on the fundinfo website content.

The future performance of an investment cannot be deduced from previous market value, i.e. the value of an investment may fall as well as rise. Therefore, good performance in the past does not guarantee good performance in the future. Investments in foreign currencies may also lose value as a result of changes in currency exchange rates and are therefore subject to greater risk. Therefore, fundinfo cannot guarantee that any capital invested will maintain its value or increase in value.
