Your capital may be at risk. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the original amount invested.

Key investment risks

  • Objective/performance risk: There is no guarantee that the strategy will achieve its objectives and a capital loss may occur.
  • Geographic concentration risk: The strategy primarily invests in a single market which may have a significant impact on the value of the strategy.
  • Concentration risk: A fall in the value of a single investment may have a significant impact on the value of the strategy because it typically invests in a limited number of investments.
  • Real estate investment trust (REITs) risk: The strategy is subject to risks associated with investing in real estate which may include but is not limited to liquidity constraints arising from difficulties with the disposal of the underlying properties, fluctuations in the value of underlying properties, defaults by borrowers or tenants, market saturation, changes in general and local economic conditions, decreases in market rates for rents, increases in competition, property taxes, capital expenditures or operating expenses and other economic, political or regulatory occurrences affecting companies in the real estate industry.
  • Investment in infrastructure companies risk: The value of investments in infrastructure companies may be negatively impacted by changes in the regulatory, economic or political environment in which they operate.
  • Capital depreciation risk: The strategy undertakes investment activities that are designed to maximise the generation of income. This may result in a reduction of capital.
