Your capital is not guaranteed
Market fluctuations can affect the performance of a fund, both upwards and downwards.
The price of fixed rate bonds and other fixed income securities varies inversely with fluctuations in interest rates. Thus, when interest rates rise, the value of these securities falls, leading to a fall in the net asset value of the fund.
Credit risk is the risk that the issuer’s financial situation deteriorates, the worst case being default by the issuer. Such deterioration may lead to a fall in the value of the issuer’s securities and therefore to a reduction in the net asset value of the fund.
Investments made in emerging markets involve a greater risk than those in developed countries.
Investments in these asset classes may be subject to higher volatility and/or be less liquid than traditional investments

* The Risk and Reward rating includes 7 levels from low to very high. The rating is based on price volatility over the last five years, and is an indicator of absolute risk. If the fund does not have historical performance of five years, the rating is calculated either based on a benchmark or based on the volatility of the target strategy. This rating is provided for illustrative purposes and the rating is not guaranteed to remain unchanged and the categorisation may shift over time. This rating is calculated under normal market conditions.
Note: A low level of risk does not imply that the fund does not bear any risk.
