Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. The value of investments, and the income from them, can go down as well as up, and you may not recover the amount of your original investment. Where investments involve currency exposure, changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of the investment to go up or down. In the case of some investments, you should be aware that there is no recognised market for them and that it may therefore be difficult for you to deal them or to obtain information about their value or the extent of the risks to which they are exposed. Any tax benefits referred to on this Site are subject to change and their availability and value will depend on your individual circumstance.
