Turner Pope Investments (“Turner Pope”) focuses primarily on the provision of investments and services that are regarded as high risk or ‘speculative’ investments. Investments in small companies and investments that are not readily realisable are considered high risk investments and are not suitable for all investors. High risk or speculative investments are not suitable for investors who are only seeking to preserve capital, or earn income through investment. Investments in high risk products should only be considered as suitable for high risk investors or as part of an overall balanced portfolio of investments.
Upon visiting the Turner Pope website for the first time it is made clear that investments in AIM companies can pose increased risks, it does not consider specific investment goals, the financial situation or specific requirements of individual users. Hence, you should carefully consider your financial situation and consult a financial advisor as to the suitability of your personal circumstances prior to making any investment or entering into a transaction.
Please consider the following risk factors which, although extensive, do not necessarily encompass all of the risks associated with an investment product; you should be fully aware that not all financial products are suitable for all investors.
Before entering into any transaction you should ensure that you understand and have made an independent assessment of the suitability and appropriateness of the transaction into which you are entering and the nature and extent of your exposure to risk of loss in light of your own objectives, financial and operational resources and any other relevant factors.
The value of an investment may go down as well as up and you may not get back the money you invested. It should not be assumed that the value of investments will always rise; all investments involve a degree of risk.
You should ensure that you have the financial capacity to bear the risk and only invest an amount you are willing to lose and that if lost would not have an adverse impact on your own lifestyle or that of your family. Investors should build a diversified portfolio to spread risk.
Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results and any investment in shares carries the risk that all or some of the capital invested might be lost.
• The price of investments can change quickly and go down as well as up.
• Higher risk or speculative investments will often have wider spreads on and are often more illiquid and in some circumstances it may be difficult to sell at any price. Shares in smaller companies can also be relatively illiquid, meaning they could be harder to trade in and out of, which makes them high risk as a result.
•High risk or speculative investments are often subject to extreme volatility, particularly over news or company announcements.
•When committing funds to high risk investments, you may not be able to realise your investment within your preferred time-scale, if at all, meaning that you may not be able to realise any cash sums originally invested.
•Investments in IPOs and placings involve a high degree of risk and are not suitable for all investors.
•Risk can be brought about by a multitude of reasons such as, the unpredictability of world markets, interest rates, taxes on income and capital, and foreign exchange rates.
•Investors should carefully consider their own personal financial circumstances before dealing in financial markets. If you have any doubts about suitability of an investment you should seek professional advice at the earliest opportunity.
