*The assets under management (‘AUM’) figure for the 4Factor team stated above is calculated on an investment basis i.e. the assets that are managed across the 4Factor range of strategies, which now includes the SA Equity & Multi-Asset strategies. Where investment strategies have underlying holdings in other Investec funds or investment strategies, the same pool of assets may appear under more than one investment strategy.
The value of investments, and any income generated from them, can fall as well as rise. Where charges are taken from capital, this may constrain future growth.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. If any currency differs from the investor's home currency, returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations.
Investment objectives and performance targets may not necessarily be achieved, losses may be made.
Specific risks: Geographic/Sector: Investments may be primarily concentrated in specific countries, geographical regions and/or industry sectors. This may mean that the resulting value may decrease whilst portfolios more broadly invested might grow. Currency exchange: Changes in the relative values of different currencies may adversely affect the value of investments and any related income. Equity investment: The value of equities (e.g. shares) and equity-related investments may vary according to company profits and future prospects as well as more general market factors. In the event of a company default (e.g. bankruptcy), the owners of their equity rank last in terms of any financial payment from that company.
