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 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.
