Risk Disclosures

Investments

All investments come with the risk of diminution in the value of investment. Investing involves substantial risks which may be systematic, government policies, currency, inflation and general unfavorable economic indices. Past performance is not a guarantee of future performance. Certain types of investment may not be suitable for all investors. Investments, unlike savings and checking accounts, are not insured by the government against market losses. Different market instruments carry different types and degrees of risk and we advise you to familiarize yourself with the risk involved in such instruments you intend to invest in. The following list of risk factors is provided as an indication of the variety of the risks which may crystalize with investment with United Capital Private Wealth services. These risks are not extensive. In order to assist investors, risks have been grouped in different categories:

Market Risk

The unit value of shares and the income from them is subject to Market Risk i.e. Value can go down as well as up. You may not get back the amount invested. Past performance is not a guarantee to the future. When cancellation rights are applicable and you exercise them, you may not get back the full amount invested in the unit if share price falls between the initial investment and when we receive written confirmation that you wish to cancel the contract.

Foreign Exchange Risk

Changes in exchange rate could affect the value of your investments (in the case of overseas investment and/or dollar denominated investments). Movement in foreign exchange rates can impact on the level of income received and the capital value of the investment. For example, If a stock strengthens against the currency in which the underlying investments of the funds are made, the value of your holdings will reduce and vice versa.

Charges

Where the Manager’s periodic charges is to be taken from the income generated by the fund and there is insufficient income within the fund to meet the charge, client would be expected to execute a debit mandate to deduct due charges from the balance that will be deducted from the fund’s capital and to that extent, this will constrain capital growth. Where the Manager’s periodic charge is wholly taken out of the fund’s capital, distributable income will be increased at the extent of the capital, and to that extent, capital will be ended or future growth constrained
