6. Risk considerations

Past performance should not be taken as an indication or guarantee of future performance, and no representation or warranty, expressed or implied, is made regarding future performance. Investing entails risks, including a partial or even a total loss of their invested capital. The price of, value of and income from securities or financial instruments can fall as well as rise. Certain investments are subject to high volatility, and may experience sudden and large falls in their value. Losses may equal or exceed the original investment: no assurance can be given that the investment objective of any product will be achieved or that substantial losses will not be suffered. Foreign currency-denominated securities and financial instruments are subject to fluctuations in exchange rates that may have a positive or adverse effect on the value, price or income of such securities or financial instruments. Some investments may not be readily realizable and it may not be possible to promptly sell or realize those investments and it may result in selling and realizing those investments at a much lower price. Similarly it may prove difficult to obtain reliable information about the value, or risks, to which such an investment is exposed. There are also special risk considerations associated with international and global investing (especially emerging markets), small-company investing, single-industry funds or investment strategies, single-country or regional funds or investment strategies, or other special, aggressive or concentrated investment strategies, such as the use of leverage or derivatives. Investors in securities effectively assume these risks.
