Anti-money laundering

The anti-money laundering legislation requires us to carry out identity verification checks on our clients. If we cannot adequately verify you or your client's identification in accordance with the legislation, we reserve the right to refuse the investment. If the funds are invested prior to the identity checks being carried out, we will not release the proceeds until we receive adequate verification of you or your client's identity.

Risk Factors - General

Past performance is no guarantee of future performance. The price of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise. An investor may not get back the original amount invested, unlike savings accounts in a bank or building society, where the capital is guaranteed. Any tax benefits mentioned are those currently available and may be subject to change. Their value depends on the personal circumstances of the investor. Changes in the rates of exchange may cause the value of overseas investments to go up or down. Specific risks associated with particular investments are detailed in the information pages that relate to those investments.

Unless otherwise stated, all information stated above relates to the situation as at January 2010.

Pillar 3 Disclosures

The Basle II Accord has been implemented in the European Union through the Capital Requirements Directive ('CRD'). The CRD details the standard regulatory capital framework for the financial services industry within the EU and consists of three pillars:

  • Pillar 1 specifies the minimum capital requirements of firms to cover credit, market and operational risk;
  • Pillar 2 requires firms to assess the need to hold additional capital to cover risks not covered under Pillar 1; and
  • Pillar 3 requires a set of disclosures to be made which enable market participants to assess information on firms' capital, risk exposures and risk management procedures.

The Financial Conduct Authority ('FCA') holds responsibility for implementing the CRD within the UK and has set out its minimum disclosure requirements in its Handbook under BIPRU 11.
