Important legal information and risk warnings

Investors should read this legal information and the Key Features document before investing. The following risk factors should be considered before making your investment decision. Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. If you have any doubts about the suitability of an investment, please contact your financial adviser.

The value of your initial (capital) investment and the income arising from it may fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount you originally invested. This difference will usually be a result of differing buying and selling prices for the fund on the days that you buy and/or sell. Equity investments carry potential for greater returns over the longer term. The volatility of these returns can also be greater.

ISAs were introduced in April 1999 for an initial 10-year period (up until April 2009). The government reviewed the savings scheme in 2006 and the favourable tax treatment of ISAs has been extended indefinitely. The current limit for ISA investment is £10,200 per tax year (of which up to £5,100 can be cash).

If you start making regular monthly investments in order to save for a specific objective, you should regularly review whether these investments will be sufficient to achieve your objective. You may not achieve your objective if you do not continue to invest regularly with a sufficient amount or if your investments do not appreciate sufficiently.

Unit Trust Information

The unit trusts will invest in smaller companies such as those quoted on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM). Investments in smaller company stocks may be less liquid and their performance more volatile than those of larger companies.

Taxation

Current tax levels and tax treatment will depend on your jurisdiction and individual circumstances.
