The value of investments and any income from them will fluctuate and is not guaranteed (this may be partly due to exchange rate fluctuations). Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.

An investment in a money market fund is not a guaranteed investment and it is different to an investment in deposits as the principal invested is capable of fluctuation. The Fund does not rely on external support for guaranteeing its ability to sell its assets and/or meet redemptions (liquidity) or stabilising the fund’s price per unit/share (Net Asset Value). There is a risk of loss of the principal invested, which is borne by the investor.

This is not a banking product and whilst preservation of capital is a major component of the objective it is not guaranteed. The value of capital invested in a money market fund may fluctuate. Neither Insight nor any other BNYM group company will provide capital support in the event of any capital loss, which will be borne by the investor.

Where the portfolio holds over 35% of its net asset value in securities of one governmental issuer, the value of the portfolio may be profoundly affected if one or more of these issuers fails to meet its obligations or suffers a ratings downgrade.

The issuer of a debt security may not pay income or repay capital to the bondholder when due.
