The following list of risk factors is provided as an indication of the variety of risks which exist with investment in the funds and investment services featured on this website (‘Iona Funds”, “Iona Investment Services”). Not all risks as stated will necessarily apply to each of the Iona Funds or Iona Investment Services. Investors’ attention is nevertheless drawn to these risks as investments in the Iona Funds or Iona Investment Services may not be suitable for all investors.
You should note that investment in any of the of the Iona Funds or Iona Investment Services should ONLY be made on the basis of reading any applicable Documentation (including any Brochure, Fund Prospectus, Offer Documents and Disclosure Documentation) or Terms and Conditions of Investment as appropriate.
Risks Applicable to All Iona Funds and Investment Services
The value of shares and the income from them can go down as well as up. An investor may not get back the amount originally invested.
Past performance is not a guide to the future.
Changes in exchange rates may cause the value of investments to go up or down.
Investments in derivative Instruments, including futures, options or contracts for differences, carries a high risk of loss, the markets in these investments being highly volatile
Investing in smaller companies, including AIM companies, can carry greater risks than those usually associated with large capitalisation companies.
If you exercise any cancellation rights you may have, you may not get back the full amount of your investment.
Where income is insufficient to pay charges the residual is taken from capital which will reduce the rate of capital growth.
Tax assumptions are subject to statutory change and the value of tax reliefs will depend upon individual circumstances.
Risks Applicable to Venture Capital Funds (VCTs)
VCT investment should be viewed as a long-term investment with shares being held for a minimum of three years. Venture Capital investment carries the risk of potential total loss of capital. Shares in a VCT may be difficult to realize. VCT investments are not suitable for all individuals, and potential investors in VCTs are strongly advised to seek independent professional advice when considering investment in a VCT.
The investments made by VCTs will normally be in companies whose securities are not publicly traded or freely marketable, and therefore may be difficult to realise, and investments in such companies are substantially riskier than in large companies. Proper information for determining their value or the risks to which they are exposed may also not be available. There can be no guarantee that a VCT’s investment objectives will be achieved.
Any realised losses on a disposal of ordinary shares will not be allowable losses for the purposes of capital gains tax, and will therefore not be available for set off against any capital gains. If a VCT loses its Inland Revenue approval, tax reliefs previously obtained may be lost. Tax assumptions are subject to statutory change and the value of tax reliefs will depend upon individual circumstances.
The past performance of funds managed or advised by the Manager is not necessarily a guide to future performance. Changes in exchange rates may cause the value of investments to go up or down.
