- Investments in shares of smaller companies are generally considered to carry a higher degree of risk as the market for their shares is often less liquid than that for shares of larger companies, making shares of smaller companies more difficult to buy and sell. Smaller companies can also be expected, in comparison to larger companies, to have less mature businesses, a more restricted depth of management and a higher risk profile.
- The performance of shares of smaller companies may be more volatile than the shares of larger companies over short time periods; therefore, investors should regard such investments as long term.
- The value of investments, and the income or capital entitlement which may derive from them, if any, may go down as well as up and is not guaranteed; therefore, investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
- Unless the performance of an investment meets or exceeds the rate of inflation, the real value of that investment will reduce.
- Changes in economic or political conditions or other factors can substantially and potentially adversely affect the value of investments and, accordingly, the performance and prospects of the GoGreen Credits Impact Fund (GCIF).
- The market price of securities issued by GCIF may fluctuate significantly and investors may not be able to sell their securities at or above the price at which they acquired them. Securities markets have in the past experienced extreme volatility that has often been unrelated to the operating performance of particular companies. Any broad market fluctuations may adversely affect the market price of the securities issued by GCIF.
- There can be no guarantee that the investment objective of a Fund will be achieved or provide the returns sought by GCIF.
- GCIF is a closed-ended company and its shareholders will have no right to have their shares redeemed or repurchased by GCIF at any time. Accordingly, the ability of shareholders to realize any value in respect of their shares will be dependent on the existence of a liquid market in the shares and the market price of the shares. The shares may trade at a discount to their net asset value.
- GCIF may only pay dividends to the extent that it has distributable profits available for that purpose. A reduction in the income from the GCIF portfolio could adversely affect the yield, if any, on its shares.
- The dealing spread of GCIF, which represents the difference between the buying and selling prices, will have an impact on the realizable value of any investment made in GCIF, particularly in the short term. To mitigate the impact of capital erosion, investors should regard investments in GCIF as long term.
- Tax legislation and the levels of relief from taxation can change at any time. Any change in the tax status of GCIF or in tax legislation could affect the value of the investments held by GCIF or its ability to provide returns to its investors. The tax treatment of an investment, and any dividends received will depend on the individual circumstances of the investor and may be subject to change in the future. If investors are in any doubt as to their tax position, they should consult their professional adviser.
- An investment in GCIF is only suitable for investors who are capable of evaluating the merits and risks of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses which may arise from such an investment (which may be equal to the whole amount invested). Such an investment should be regarded as long-term and complementary to existing investments in a range of other financial assets and should not form a major part of an investment portfolio.
