Risks

UBS Country & Regional Funds invest in equities and may therefore be subject to high fluctuations in value. For this reason, an investment horizon of at least five years and corresponding risk tolerance and capacity are required. As these UBS funds pursue an active management style, each fund's performance can deviate from that of its reference index. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. Every fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions. The distributing (-dist) share classes of this fund intend to distribute capital as well as income (e.g. from dividends). Investors in some jurisdictions may incur a higher rate of tax on distributed capital than on any capital gains which are realised on disposal of fund shares. Some investors may therefore choose to invest in the accumulating (-acc) instead of the distributing (-dist) share classes. Investors may be taxed at a later point in time on income and capital arising on accumulating (-acc) share classes compared to distributing (-dist) share classes. Investors should seek their own tax advice. Total yield must not be confused with total return.
