Past performance is not a guide to future returns.
The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and is not guaranteed. An investor may not get back the amount originally invested. Investors may be subject to tax on their dividends. The majority of charges will be deducted from the capital of the company. This will constrain capital growth of the company in order to maintain the income streams.
