RISK WARNING

The Client should not use the services of the Company’s Fund Management unless he knows and understands the risks involved for each one of the Financial Instruments with which the Company conducts its business. So, prior to registering an account and making a deposit with the Company, the Client should consider carefully whether the Company’s investing in Financial Instruments is suitable to him in the light of his circumstances and financial resources.

 

The Client is warned of the following risk:

  1. Under certain market conditions it may be difficult or impossible for the Company to execute an order, therefore the Client can incur significant losses, up to the total depreciation of investments.
  2. Placing Stop Loss Orders serves to limit losses of the Company on behalf of the Client. However, under certain market conditions the execution of a Stop Loss Order may be worse than its stipulated price and the realized losses can be larger than expected.
  3. There is a risk that the Company’s trades in Financial Instruments may be or become subject to tax and/or any other duty for example because of changes in legislation or its personal circumstances. The Company does not warrant that no tax and/or any other stamp duty will be payable.

  4. The Company will not provide the Client with investment advice relating to investments or possible transactions in investments or make investment recommendations of any kind.
  5. Investing in some Financial Instruments entails the use of “gearing” or “leverage”. In considering whether to engage in this form of investment, the Client should be aware that the high degree of “gearing” or “leverage” is a particular feature of Derivative Financial Instruments. This stems from the margining system application to such trades, which generally involves a comparatively modest deposit or margin in terms of overall contract value, so that a relatively small movement in the underlying market can have a disproportionately dramatic effect on the Company’s trade. If the underlying market movement is in the Company’s favor, the Company may achieve a good profit on behalf of the Client, but an equally small adverse market movement can quickly result in the loss of the Client’s enter deposit. In regard to the Company’s trade in Derivative Financial Instruments, Derivative Financial Instruments is a non-delivery spot transaction giving an opportunity to make profit on changes in currency rates, commodity, stock market indices or share prices called the underlying instrument. The Client should not invest in the Company’s Investment Portfolio unless he is willing to undertake the risks of losing entirely all the money which he has invested and also any additional commissions and other expenses incurred.
  6. The Company may be required to hold the Client’s money in an account that is segregated from other clients and the Company’s money, but this does not guarantee the full protection of the Client’s funds in the event of force majeure circumstances.

This notice cannot and does not disclose or explain all of the risk and other significant aspects involved in dealing in all Financial Instrument and investment services provided by the Company.

The Company reserves the right to review and/or amend its Risk Disclosure statements, at its sole discretion, whenever it deems fit or appropriate.
