Investment Performance Information
Investments may involve a significant degree of risk, including loss of capital. The value of an investment and the income from it could go down as well as up. The return of your investment is not guaranteed, and you may get back less than you originally invested. Past performance is not an indicator of future performance. Suffering a loss on your investment is always a possibility. Capital is at risk.
Marten & Co may comment on investments where above average price movements can be expected. For example, exchange rates may cause the value of underlying overseas investments to go down as well as up. The potential volatility of emerging markets may increase the risk to the value of, and the income from, the shares of a company. Investments in stocks, such as of technology companies, can also be more volatile than investments in more established companies. from these and many other investments.
Marten & Co may write or comment on companies that use gearing in a number of forms that can increase volatility and, in some cases, result in a complete loss of an investment. Companies that use or add gearing will mean that the structure will typically rank prior to ordinary shares. Another significant risk is the potentially severe detrimental impact on their breach of banking covenants.
