Potentially lower rewards
Does not mean a risk-free investment
Potentially higher rewards
The value of an investment in a sub-fund increases or decreases over time. At the time of resale, the price of your shares may be less than the original price, representing a loss. If you invest in a sub-fund whose currency is different from your own, exchange rate fluctuations can also reduce your gains or increase your losses.
The above risk level is calculated on the basis of the sub-fund’s volatility over the medium term (i.e. on the basis of actual changes in its value over the last five years or on a simulation, if the subfund was created within that period). The volatility of the sub-fund may increase or decrease over time, which may change its risk level.
The subfund’s risk level reflects the following factor(s):
Equity investments have greater volatility and higher risk than investments in bonds and money market instruments. The risk level does not reflect the potential impact of unusual market conditions or unforeseen events that may increase risk or trigger other risks such as:
