This Website is only intended for residents of countries and/or territories where the funds specified in the Website (the "Funds") are authorised by the SFC under Section 104 of the Securities and Futures Ordinance (Chapter 571 of the Laws of Hong Kong) for offering to the public in Hong Kong. The information contained in this Website does not constitute a public offer under any applicable legislation or an offer or solicitation to sell shares in any of the Funds, by anyone in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or distribution would be unlawful or in which the person making such offer or solicitation is not qualified to do so or to anyone to whom it is unlawful to make such offer or solicitation. 

The offering documents contain information as to the selling restrictions applicable to any particular product and you should read them carefully. It is your responsibility to be aware of and to observe all applicable laws and regulations of any relevant jurisdiction.

The authorisation of any of the Funds by the SFC does not imply official approval or recommendation. SFC authorisation of a fund is not a recommendation or endorsement of a fund nor does it guarantee the commercial merits of a fund or its performance. It does not mean the fund is suitable for all investors nor is it an endorsement of its suitability for any particular investor or class of investors. An investor should not invest unless the intermediary which offers the Fund has advised that the Fund is suitable for the investor and has explained why, including that investment in the Fund will be consistent with the investment objectives of the investor.  This Website has not been reviewed by the SFC. You should not make investment decisions solely on the basis of the information contained in this Website. You should also refer to the relevant offering documents for further details including the risk factors.

The Funds are not available for distribution to or investment by US investors. The Funds or any of their sub-funds will not be registered under the US Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and, except in a transaction which does not violate the Securities Act or any other applicable US securities laws (including without limitation any applicable law of any of the States of the USA), may not be directly or indirectly offered or sold in the USA or any of its territories or possessions or areas subject to its jurisdiction or to the benefit of a US person.

Investment involves risks. You should be aware that investments may increase or decrease in value and that past performance is no guarantee of future returns, you may not get back the amount originally invested. The financial instruments used in the Funds carry inherent risks which are unavoidable such as market risk, credit risk, liquidity risk and other risks. The Funds investing in small capitalization companies should be regarded as having higher volatility and liquidity risks given the nature of small capitalization securities. The Funds investing in a single market should be regarded as having higher risks of concentration than the Funds investing in multiple markets, which have a more diversified exposure. You may be subject to substantial losses. The aforementioned list of risk factors is not exhaustive and you should read the offering documents of each of the Funds for further details.

If you are unsure about the meaning of any information contained in this Website, please consult your financial or other professional adviser.
