As a concentrated equity portfolio of typically less than 50 stocks the fund may involve higher volatility and therefore higher risk for those with shorter term investment time horizons (under 5 years).  The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency movements and you may not get back the amount originally invested.  You should therefore regard your investment as long term.  Details of the risk factors are included in the fund's prospectus available at
