The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up, is not guaranteed, and you may not recover the amount of your original investment. Past performance should not be seen as an indication of future performance. Where investments involve exposure to a currency other than that in which it is denominated, changes in rates of exchange may cause the value of the investment to go up or down, consequently, investors may receive an amount greater or less than their original investment.
