Past performance is not
necessarily a guide to future performance. The value of investments and the
income of any financial instruments mentioned in the website may fall as well
as rise, and investors may get back less than the amount originally invested.
Fluctuations in exchange rates may have a positive or an adverse effect on the
value of foreign-currency denominated securities and financial instruments.
Certain investments, in particular hedge funds, venture capital funds and
emerging markets, involve an above-average degree of risk and should be seen as
long-term in nature. Derivative instruments and warrants involve a high degree of
risk. It may be difficult for an investor to deal in derivative investments or
to obtain reliable information about their value. In the case of Over the
Counter Derivatives, the investment may only be sold back to the original
counterparty from which it was purchased. A warrant involves a high degree of
gearing (leveraging) so that a small movement in the price of the security to
which the warrant relates may result in a disproportionately large fall or rise
in the price of the warrant.
