For the purposes of these Terms, a US Person includes but is not limited to a person (including a partnership, corporation, limited liability company or similar entity) that is a citizen or resident of the US or is organized or incorporated under the laws of the United States of America.

Past performance does not guarantee and is not indicative of future results. There can be no assurances that countries, markets or sectors will perform as expected. Investments involve certain risks, including political and currency risks. Investment return and principal value may go down as well as up and could result in the loss of all capital invested. Certain funds may invest substantially in any one or a combination of (i) emerging market securities, subjecting the fund to higher liquidity, currency, political, regulatory and economic risks; (ii) securities in a single market/sector, which are subject to higher concentration risk than investments with a more diversified portfolio; (iii) small cap companies, which are subject to higher default, liquidity and volatility risk than investment in large cap companies; and (iv) below-investment grade securities, which are subject to higher counter-party/credit, market and liquidity risks than investment grade securities. Such investments may subject a fund’s net asset value to substantial loss. Certain funds may also invest in financial derivative instruments, which may subject the relevant fund to substantial counterparty/credit risk, market risk and liquidity risk and potential substantial loss. Please be aware that currency fluctuations may also affect the value of overseas investments.
