Eurizon SLJ Bond Aggregate RMB Fund

Charges from capital - The fund charges are taken from capital invested. Taking charges from capital has the effect of increasing the yield, whilst also negatively effecting the growth potential of the investment.
Chinese securities - The fund invests in financial instruments dealt in on the local Chinese markets, including on the CIBM, and denominated in Renminbi may imply specific regulatory, exchange rate, repatriation and tax risks as more detailed in the section 5․40 of the Prospectus.
Counterparty risk - The fund carries the risk that a third-party with which the Sub-fund entered into contracts in order to perform some operations may default on its obligations.
Credit risk - The risk that the issuer of debt instruments fails to pay to the Sub-fund interests and principal, even only in part.
Liquidity risk - The risk that the sale of the financial instruments in which the Sub-fund invests may be difficult depending on the features of these instruments themselves and/or on the market conditions when the sale is to be executed or on the lack of a sufficient number of potential buyers. The selling price may then be less than the value of a financial instrument.
Geopolitical risk - The risk related to the investments in geographic areas that may be sensitive to any event of economic, geopolitical or regulatory nature or any other events beyond the control of the Management Company that could expose the Sub-fund to losses.
Exchange rate risk - Changes in currency exchange rates may affect the value of your investment.
Concentration risk - The price of funds that invest in a reduced number of holdings, sectors, or geographical areas may be more heavily affected by events that influence markets and increase volatility.
