Risks of investing:

Equities: Foreign securities may be more volatile, harder to price and less liquid than domestic securities. They are subject to different accounting and regulatory standards, and political and economic risks. These risks may be enhanced in emerging markets countries.

Fixed Income: Fixed income securities are subject to certain risks including, but not limited to: interest rate, credit, prepayment, and extension.

Property: Investments in property may carry additional risk of loss due to the nature and volatility of the underlying investments. Real estate investments are relatively illiquid and the ability to vary investments in response to changes in economic and other conditions is limited. Property values can be affected by a number of factors including, inter alia, economic climate, property market conditions, interest rates, and regulation.

Alternatives: Alternative investments may engage in speculative investment practices; involve a high degree of risk; and are generally considered to be illiquid due to restrictions on transferring interests. An investor could lose all or a substantial portion of their investment. Investors must have the financial ability, sophistication / experience and willingness to bear the risks of such an investment.

Diversification does not necessarily ensure a return or protect against a loss.

This is not a complete list or explanation of the risks involved and investors should read the relevant offering documents and consult with their own advisors before investing.
