CF Asset Value Investors Global Fund – General Risk Factors

CF Asset Value Investors Global Fund ICVC (the “Fund”) is an open-ended investment company (“OEIC”), authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority. The authorised Corporate Director (“ACD”) is Capita Financial Managers Limited, authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, with Registered Offices at 17 Rochester Row, Westminster, London SW1P 1QT. The Fund is only authorised for sale in the United Kingdom.

Subscriptions may only be made on the basis of the relevant prospectus and most recent financial statement and semi-annual financial statements published thereafter. These can be obtained from AVI or the ACD at the addresses above.

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Changes in exchange rates could affect the value of your investment. Movements in foreign exchange rates can impact the level of income received and the capital value of the investment. For example, if the currency of your country of residence strengthens against the currency in which the underlying investments of the fund are made, the value of your holding will reduce and vice versa. The value of shares and the income from them can go down as well as up. You may not get back the amount invested.

Where the managers periodic charge is to be taken from the income generated by the fund and there is insufficient income within the fund to meet that charge, the balance will be deducted from the fund’s capital and to that extent will constrain capital growth.

Derivatives may be used to hedge against various risks. The use of derivatives for hedging in a rising market may restrict potential gains. Please note that when cancellation rights are applicable and you exercise them, you may not get back the full amount you invested if the unit or share price falls before we receive written confirmation that you wish to cancel the contract.

British Empire – General Risk Factors

The price of investments and the income from them may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the full amount invested. The trust uses gearing techniques (leverage) which will exaggerate market movements both down and up which could mean sudden and large falls in market value. Please refer to the Key Features Document for further details effecting your investment.
