Disclaimers and other important information

^Model performance inception date: 16/8/2006
Past performance is no indicator of future performance. Long term performance returns show the potential volatility of returns over time. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed. You may not get back the amount originally invested. Fluctuation may be particularly marked in the case of a higher volatility fund and the value of an investment may fall suddenly and substantially. Model portfolio composition and performance have been based on theoretical tracking of the model portfolio and are gross of fees and do not take tax positions into account. Please note, actual portfolios may not perform in the same manner as the model depicted in this document, depending on the nature of your personal Portfolio and any customisations. Rounding used in the presentation of data may result in minor variations.
