It is important to note that Collective Investment Schemes in Securities (CIS) are generally medium to long term investments. The value of participatory interests may go down as well as up and past performance is not necessarily a guide to the future. CIS are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. A schedule of fees and charges and maximum commissions is available on request from the company/scheme. Commission and incentives may be paid and if so, would be included in the overall costs. Some portfolios forward price while other portfolios price historically. Consult the company/scheme for details. Fluctuations or movements in exchange rates may cause the value of underlying international investments to go up or down.
