Risk Warnings. Investment Risks

ITI Funds products may not be suitable for all investors and ITI Funds does not guarantee the performance of the ITI Funds products. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. The value and price of securities (which may trade in limited markets) of the ITI Funds products and the income from them may fall as well as rise and an investor may not recover the full amount invested. An investor’s income from ITI Funds products is not necessarily fixed and may fluctuate. Where an investor invests in an ITI Funds product denominated in a currency other than that of the country in which the investor is resident, the return to the investor may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations.

Exchange rate movements can affect the value of investments involving exposure to foreign currencies.

Any projections or examples (including calculations used therein) set out in this website are for illustrative purposes only and are not guaranteed to be accurate, complete or up to date.

Tax levels, the tax status of the ITI Funds products, the taxation of investors and any tax reliefs may change from time to time. Any change in the taxation legislation in any jurisdiction where an ITI Funds product is registered, cross-listed, marketed or invested could affect the tax status of the ITI Funds product, affect the value of the relevant ITI Funds product’s investments in the affected jurisdiction, affect the relevant ITI Funds product’s ability to achieve its investment objective, and/or alter the post tax returns to investors.

Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)

The capital return and income of each ITI Funds fund are based on the capital appreciation and income on the securities it holds, less expenses incurred. Therefore, each ITI Funds fund’s return may be expected to fluctuate in response to changes in such capital appreciation or income. Additionally, the securities in an equity benchmark index may under-perform fixed income investments and stock market investments that track other markets, segments or sectors different to that of an ITI Funds fund. As foreign exchanges can be open on days when shares in an ITI Funds fund are not priced, the value of the securities in an ITI Funds fund’s portfolio may change on days when shareholders will not be able to purchase or sell an ITI Funds fund’s shares.

Certain ITI Funds fund’s may use derivatives, details of which will be set out in the relevant prospectuses. The use of derivatives involves special risks and the ITI Funds fund’s may be exposed to credit risk with regard to parties with whom it trades.

An investment in an ITI Funds fund often involves investing in international markets. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments involve the risk of losing all or part of any capital from unfavourable fluctuations in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations. The value of investments in ITI Funds fund’s investing in economies and markets which may be less developed than more established economies (including emerging markets), may be subject to greater volatility due to increased uncertainty as to how these markets operate and the possibility of lower trading volumes.

Cookies Policy


What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored in your computer’s memory and hard drive, in your mobile device or tablet when you visit certain web pages. They are used to enable websites to function or to provide information to the owners of a website, or other third parties which receive data obtained from that website.

This information might be about you, your preferences or your device and is mostly used to make the site work as you expect it to. The information does not usually directly identify you, but it can give you a more personalised web experience.


Why do we use cookies?
Cookies help us to provide customised services and information. We use cookies on our Website to tell us, in general terms, how and when pages in our Website are visited, what our users’ technology preferences are – such as what type of video player they use – and whether our Website is functioning properly. Depending on their purpose, some cookies will only operate for the length of a single browsing session, whilst others have a longer life span to ensure that they fulfil their longer-term purposes (as explained in more detail below). Please note that, however long the cookies’ active life may be, you can delete cookies (and therefore stop any further data collection by them) as further described below.


In broad terms, we use cookies on our Website for the following purposes:
• Analytical purposes: Analytical cookies allow us to recognise, measure and track visitors to our Website and compile a record of this usage information. This helps us to improve and develop the way our Website work, for example, by determining whether site visitors can find information easily, or by identifying the aspects of websites that are of the most interest to them.
• Usage preferences: Some of the cookies on our Website are activated when visitors to our sites make a choice about their usage of the site. Our Website then ‘remembers’ the settings preferences of the user concerned. This allows us to tailor aspects of our sites to the individual user.
• Terms and conditions: We use cookies on our Website to record when a site visitor has seen a policy, such as this one, or provided consent, such as consent to the terms and conditions on our Website. This helps to improve the user’s experience of the site – for example, it avoids a user from repeatedly being asked to consent to the same terms. We also track whether a user has seen other similar documents (such as an online survey) before – again, to ensure that a user’s experience of our Website is a smooth one.
• Session management: The software that runs our website uses cookies for technical purposes needed by the internal workings of our servers. For instance, we use cookies to distribute requests among multiple servers, authenticate users and determine what features of the site they can access, verify the origin of requests, keep track of information about a user’s session and determine which options or pages to display in order for the site to function.
• Functional purposes: Functional purpose cookies store information that is needed by our applications to process and operate. For example, where transactions or requests within an application involve multiple workflow stages, cookies are used to store the information from each stage temporarily, in order to facilitate completion of the overall transaction or request.
• Advertising: Advertising cookies allow us (or third parties) to monitor the behaviour of users of our Website. This information is used to ensure that products and services highlighted to those individuals are targeted in a focused and relevant manner – e.g. through advertisements on ITI Funds website or through advertisements on third party websites (e.g. Bloomberg, Agefi.com Handlesblatt.de, etc) where we are legally allowed to do so which are based on your experience with our Website; or to monitor the effectiveness of those digital marketing campaigns. We also monitor whether any adverts displayed on our Website are of interest to users and retain this information to ensure that adverts seen by users of our Website over a period of time are appropriate.

Please note that third parties may use cookies. The kind of cookies and the consequent data processing carried out by such third parties are regulated by their privacy policy.
