The value of investments can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount you invested. Overseas investments are subject to currency fluctuations. The investment trusts can gain additional exposure to the market, known as gearing, potentially increasing volatility. Some of the trusts invest more heavily than others in smaller companies, which can carry a higher risk because their share prices may be more volatile than those of larger companies.
