The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Changes in the rates of exchange between currencies may cause the value of investments to diminish or increase. Fluctuation may be particularly marked in the case of a higher volatility fund and the value of an investment may fall suddenly and substantially. Levels and basis of taxation may change from time to time. 3. The target date in the name of a fund is the approximate date when an investor plans to start withdrawing money. The principal value of a fund is not guaranteed at any time, including at the target date. 4. References to Tax in this document are based on our interpretation of current tax law and HMRC practice.
