What general risks should I be aware of before accessing the information on this website?


  • Although certain of the funds or strategies mentioned on this Website have been approved or declared valid by the Financial Supervisory Commission, this does not mean they are absolutely risk-free. Past management performance by a fund management company does not guarantee that a given fund will yield a minimum investment return. Apart from performing its due diligence obligations as a good-faith manager, the fund management company is not responsible for profits or losses in relation to a fund, nor does it guarantee any minimum return. Before purchasing a fund or investing in a strategy, the investor should carefully read the fund's prospectus or investment policy statement.
  • Past performance does not imply a guarantee regarding future performance. Please note that the price and return rate of a unit or share may rise and fall. You may be unable to recover your original investment. Profits that can be obtained may vary depending on when an investment is made.
  • The value of your investment and the profit it generates may rise and fall, and you may be unable to recover your original investment
  • Fluctuations in exchange rates may affect the value of an investment and the profit it generates.
  • If you exercise any cancellation rights, you may be unable to recover the amount of your original investment due to a reduction in the price of a unit or share since your investment was made.
  • The deduction of processing fees and expenses, especially initial sales processing fees, will not be completely consistent during the course of investment. Therefore, if you buy back the full amount of an initial-stage investment, you might not be able to recover your investment.
  • There is no guarantee that applicable taxes or suggested taxes at the time an investment is made will not change.
  • When investing in a fund from certain countries, taxes may be deducted from dividends and capital gains on securities issued by the fund.

You should review the relevant Taiwan offering document(s) and/or investment policy statement for any fund or strategy to learn about all relevant risk factors regarding an investment. You are responsible for ensuring that you are appropriately informed about any securities, taxation or other legislation or law that could affect your decision to invest in any fund or strategy described herein.
