Legal and regulatory information Risk warnings

Depending on the name and contents of the website, we would like to bring to your attention the following risks:

  • Certain high volatility investments such as derivatives can be subject to sudden and large falls in value which could equal or exceed the amount invested or deposited.

  • The value of the funds and income from them can go up as well as down and consequently you may not get back the amount originally invested. Past performance of the funds is not necessarily a guide to their future performance.

  • When an investment is described as being suitable for an investor seeking income from that investment, income flow may fluctuate and part of the capital may be used to pay that income.

  • Certain specific recommendations may relate to investments that are not readily realisable. This means that it may be difficult for the investor to sell or realise an investment or to obtain reliable information about its value or the extent of the risk to which it is exposed.

  • Certain specific investments or investment services contained in the UBS Website may have tax implications for Hong Kong private customers to the extent that the levels and basis of taxation may be subject to change. If you have any doubts, you should seek advice from your tax advisers.

  • Where you buy or sell contingent liability investments, you may not only lose all the amount which you invested but may also have to pay more later.

We recommend investors to read the prospectus and annual reports in relation to the funds before investing.
