All investment and commercial activities carry risk, and you should consider whether The Triodos Sustainable Pioneer Fund is a suitable investment for you in light of your personal circumstances.
Equity funds with a focus on small and medium sized listed companies are more volatile as price movements of shares within this category tend to have a larger impact on the value of the fund.
The Fund is intended for long-term investors who can accept the risks associated with investing primarily in the securities of the type held in that Fund. Investors will be subject to the risks associated with equity and equity-related securities, including fluctuations in market prices, adverse issuer or market information and the fact that equity and equity related interests are subordinate in the right of payment to other corporate securities, including debt securities.
Currency risk arises because investments by the fund may be denominated either in euros or in foreign currencies. In principle, the fund does not hedge the currency risk of these investments.
The fund is subject to market risk, which is the risk caused by changes in the price of the investments. The fund mitigates this market risk by means of careful selection and diversification of investments.
