Mitchell Fraser-Jones 19 October 2017 4 min read

The UK stock market declined slightly in September, despite continued positive momentum in most other major equity markets. Sterling was strong, as the Bank of England indicated that interest rates may rise in November. We do not believe that this heralds the start of significantly tighter monetary policy, but it is a sign that the UK economy is in much better shape than many commentators have suggested…

What are the risks?

  • The value of the fund and any income from it may go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invested
  • Past performance cannot be relied upon as a guide to future performance
  • The ongoing charges figure is charged to capital, so the income of the fund may be higher but capital growth may be restricted or capital may be eroded
  • The fund may invest in other transferable securities, money market instruments, warrants, collective investment schemes and deposits – some of these security types could increase the fund′s volatility and increase the level of indirect charges to which the fund is exposed
  • The fund may invest in overseas securities and be exposed to currencies other than pound sterling – as a result, exchange rate movements may cause the sterling value of investments to decrease or increase
  • The fund may invest in unquoted securities, which may be less liquid and more difficult to value, because they are generally not publicly traded – the lack of an open market may also make it more difficult to establish fair value
