Risk Factors


The counterparty to a derivative or other contractual agreement or synthetic financial product could become unable to honour its commitments to the Funds, potentially creating a partial or total loss for the Funds. The Funds can be exposed to different currencies. Changes in foreign exchange rates could create losses. A derivative may not perform as expected, and may create losses greater than the cost of the derivative. If a fund uses derivatives for leverage, it makes it more sensitive to certain market or interest rate movements and may cause above-average volatility and risk of loss.


Equity prices fluctuate daily, based on many factors including general, economic, industry or company news. In difficult market conditions, the Funds may not be able to sell a security for full value or at all. This could affect performance and could cause the fund to defer or suspend redemptions of its shares. The Funds may take positions that seek to profit if the price of a security falls. A large rise in price of the security may cause large losses. Failures at service providers could lead to disruptions of fund operations or losses.
