What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments.

  • The Fund invests mainly in Shariah-compliant equity and equity-related securities of companies around the world. Such securities have historically been subject to significant price movements that may occur suddenly due to market or company-specific factors. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate considerably over time.
  • Other significant risks include:
    Emerging markets risk: the risk related to investing in countries that have less developed political, economic, legal and regulatory systems, and that may be impacted by political/economic instability, lack of liquidity or transparency, or safekeeping issues.
    Foreign Currency risk: the risk of loss arising from exchange-rate fluctuations or due to exchange control regulations.
    Liquidity risk: the risk that arises when an asset cannot be sold on a timely basis due to security-specific factors or adverse market conditions, which may impact the Fund’s ability to meet redemption requests, particularly if they are increasing.
    Shariah compliance risk: the risk that the restriction to invest only in Shariah-compliant securities may place the Fund at a comparative disadvantage vs. funds that do not have this restriction. Returns to shareholders may also be reduced due to payments to Shariah approved charities to “purify” dividends.
