Past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance. The value of any investments, and the income from them, may fall as well as rise and you may not recover the value of your original investment. Changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of your investments that involve exposure to foreign currency to go up or down. With regard to currency accounts, there is an exchange risk if the currency is not the depositor's base currency.
Tax reliefs available under current legislation may change, and their availability and value depend on individual circumstances.
Certain investments carry a higher degree of risk than others and are, therefore, unsuitable for some investors. Before contemplating any transaction, you should consider whether you require financial advice.
