Information on any funds referred to in this Website (the “Funds”) or other Fund information in the Website does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy by anyone in any jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation is not lawful or in which the person making any such offer or solicitation is not qualified to do so or to anyone to whom it is unlawful to make such offer or solicitation. Shares, units or other interests in any Funds will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“Securities Act”), and may not be directly or indirectly offered or sold in the United States or any of its territories or possessions or areas subject to its jurisdiction or to or for the benefit of a U.S. Person (as such term is defined under Regulation S of the Securities Act, “U.S. Persons”). U.S. Persons are not entitled to subscribe for such shares / units. The material contained in this Website has not been reviewed by the SFC or any regulatory authority in Hong Kong.
Important information about each Fund is contained in such Fund’s offering materials, which is available upon request from ORI. BEFORE ACQUIRING THE SHARES OR UNITS OF ANY FUND BY PURCHASE OR EXCHANGE, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO READ SUCH FUND’S OFFERING MATERIALS, INCLUDING THE RISK FACTORS.
All investments involve risk and may lose value. Investors may lose all or a portion of the amount invested. The value of the investment and the income from it will vary. If you are considering making an investment, you are advised to obtain your own independent professional advice and to carefully consider all relevant risk factors. The price of units or shares and the income from them in relation to any investment may go down as well as up and any past performance is not indicative of future performance. ORI does not guarantee the performance of any of the Funds.
An investment in a Fund often involves investing in international markets. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, international investments involve the risk of losing all or part of any capital from unfavorable fluctuations in currency values, from differences in generally accepted accounting principles or from economic or political instability in other nations. An investment in emerging markets also involves heightened other risks such as increased volatility and the possibility of lower trading volume. Funds may use or invest in financial derivatives.
Where a Fund’s investment objective is to track an index, the Fund is not sponsored, endorsed, issued, sold or promoted by the relevant index provider. None of these companies make any representation regarding the advisability of investing in the Funds. Index returns are for illustrative purposes only and do not represent actual fund performance. Index performance returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs or expenses. Indices are unmanaged and one cannot invest directly in an index.
