Knowing the investment risks associated with each investment is important. When you invest in a unit trust, you should receive a factsheet and prospectus which details the risks involved. Some examples are (non-exhaustive):

Investment Risk – As with any investment, your investment value and dividends may go up, down or even be completely lost in extreme cases.

Foreign Exchange Risk – You should be aware that your investments can be negatively affected by foreign exchange risk if you hold unit trusts/ funds that invest in assets denominated in foreign currencies.

Potential Risks of Hedge Funds or Alternative Funds – These funds differ from traditional unit trusts in that they can undertake more risky investment strategies than traditional fund managers e.g. they may borrow to invest which can magnify potential losses.

Potential Risks of Derivatives (if applicable) – Unit trusts which invest in derivatives may have higher volatility. An investment in derivatives may result in losses that are greater than the principal amount invested. Derivatives are also subject to a number of risks including but not limited to liquidity, interest rate, market, counterparty and credit risk. It is important that you fully understand the nature and risk exposure before investing in derivatives.

Fees and Charges

Sales Charges

These are charges which are deducted from the subscription amount and paid to the distributor.

Switching Fees

Some unit trusts providers allow investors to switch internally to another unit trust from the same umbrella and a switching fee of approximately 1% will apply.

Recurring Fees

Annual management fees and other administrative fees will be charged by the fund house. While you do not pay these fees out of your own pocket, they are paid for by the unit trust and incorporated into the fund price, which will reduce the return that you get.

Please contact your dedicated Relationship Manager.
