Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments can go down as well as up, so your client could get back less than they invested. The value of funds can fall and rise purely as a result of exchange rate fluctuations. Investments in newer markets, smaller companies or single sectors offer the possibility of higher returns but may also involve a higher degree of risk.
