Key Risks

Key Risks

All persons who register as an investor on this website should carefully read the following risk warnings before making an investment decision.

The relevant product literature will cover risks specific to a specific offer. Please bear in mind the following general risks involved when investing through our platform.

Your personal decision to invest

A decision to invest in a fund is a personal decision by you and no responsibility for the consequences of that decision is accepted by Truffle Invest (“Truffle”) or by any of its directors, agents, employees or other members.

Capital is at risk and returns not guaranteed

Your capital is at risk, returns are not guaranteed, and you may not get back the amount invested.

Investments are long term and illiquid

Investments made through the platform are generally illiquid and long term. This means that once you have invested your money it could be difficult for you to exit your investment and get your money back at a time that suits you. You should be aware that no secondary market exists and you will have to wait until the investment is realised.

Past performance

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. You should not rely on any past performance as a guarantee of future investment performance.

Diversify your portfolio

We highly recommend you maintain a balanced portfolio. Diversification (by spreading your money across different types of investments) should reduce your overall risk.

Adverse changes to FX rates

Investments made through Truffle will be in the currency of each underlying fund. You should consider the risk of losses that may arise from currency fluctuations between the fund’s currency and your own functional currency throughout the duration of your investment.


We do not provide advice or make personal recommendations. If you are in any doubt about the action you should take or the contents of a particular offering, you should seek advice from an independent financial adviser authorised under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.

You are not covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)

Investments made through the platform are not protected by the FSCS.


We recommend that you take your own tax advice on any investments which you make via the platform.

Your capital is at risk. The value of your investment may go up as well as down. You may lose all your invested capital. Investment made through Truffle Invest Ltd are not covered by the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme (“FSCS”). Investing in Private Markets involves risks, including loss of capital (as outlined above), illiquidity, absence of control, lack of dividends and dilution, and should be done only as part of a diversified portfolio. Investments should only be made by investors who understand these risks and if in doubt should consult a fully qualified independent financial advisor. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and is subject to change in future.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. Target returns are not guaranteed and actual returns may vary significantly from target returns. We do not give advice or make investment recommendations to you. No communications through this website or any other medium should be construed as such. See Key Risks and Terms and Conditions for further information.
