Recession risk heightened as hints of economic slowing emerge
 

  • The banking crises in the US and Switzerland are unlikely to threaten the broader stability of the global financial system but these events will likely tighten lending standards
  • Inflation rates remain elevated globally and are unlikely to reach central banks’ targets by the end of the year
  • Tightening monetary conditions are starting to bite, and investors are beginning to price in a more challenging growth environment

 


Risk factors you should consider before investing:

  • This material is not intended to provide investment advice or be considered a personal recommendation.
  • The value of investments and income from them can go down as well as up and you may lose some or all of your initial investment.
  • Past results are not a guide to future results.
  • If the currency in which you invest strengthens against the currency in which the underlying investments of the fund are made, the value of your investment will decrease. Currency hedging seeks to limit this, but there is no guarantee that hedging will be totally successful.
  • Depending on the strategy, risks may be associated with investing in fixed income, derivatives, emerging markets and/or high-yield securities; emerging markets are volatile and may suffer from liquidity problems.
