CFDs Risk Warning
By transacting in Contracts for Difference (CFDs), you are subject to a higher level of risks than the risks associated with transactions in traditional shares. You may not get back the amount initially invested and may be required to make additional payments by way of margin payments on a frequent basis. Investors in CFDs may be subject to unlimited losses.
The value of an investment in shares or CFDs may be affected by a variety of factors, including but not limited to, price volatility, market volume, liquidity, and foreign exchange rates. Past performance and projected performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance.
Performance projections and examples of investment performance within this document are made for the purposes of demonstration only and are not necessarily indicative of the past or future performance of a particular security or stock.
CFDs are not suitable for all types of investors and you should not carry out a transaction in CFDs unless you understand the extent of your exposure to risk.
Trading the markets with any product whether it is with a Share, a CFD, Futures or Foreign Exchange requires a very clear understanding by the participant of the risks.
A CFD carries a much higher risk than an ordinary share and it is possible to lose the whole of your deposit and, due to the effect of leverage, you could become liable to unlimited losses.
It is for this reason that, prior to every advised trade, SI Capital’ brokers will advise an appropriate stop-loss. Working together with our customers, it is our aim to help you profit from our advice.
What are the risks when investing in AIM shares
All Equity investments carry some risk; share prices may go down as well as up and you may not get back the money you invested. The Alternative Investment Market (AIM), was launched onto the London Stock Exchange in June 1995 with just 10 companies worth £82m. Today over 900 firms have quotes on AIM, including household names such as ASOS, Majestic Wine and Prezzo. The largest 50 companies each have market values of over £200 million.
Investments in AIM shares are likely to be higher risk than shares quotes on the main London Stock Exchange. The AIM market is made up of smaller more dynamic companies with higher growth potential.These companies are therefore more volatile and whilst they offer great potential, growth is not guaranteed. Investments in AIM companies may not be readily realisable and there is less liquidity in this market – if they have to be sold immediately you may get back much less than you paid for them. The price may change quickly and it may go down as well as up.
Stamp Duty is currently paid on purchases of AIM stocks at 0.5% however in the 2013 Budget the Chancellor pledged to abolish stamp duty on AIM companies from April 2014.Any references to past performance may not necessarily be repeated; current tax treatment may not continue and will depend on your personal circumstances.
If in any doubt about the suitability of AIM shares for your particular circumstances please speak to one of our equity advisors on 01483 413500.
Foreign Exchange Risk Warning
Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you and you may be subject to losses that exceed your initial deposit.
This notice cannot disclose all the risks and other significant aspects of trading derivative products such as futures, options, contracts for differences (CFDs) and foreign exchange (FX). You should not deal in these products unless you understand their nature and the extent of your exposure to risk. You should also be satisfied that the product is suitable for you in the light of your circumstances and financial position. Certain strategies, such as a spread position, a straddle or an FX pair may be as risky as a simple long or short position.
Although derivative instruments can be utilised for the management of investment risk, some of these products are unsuitable for many investors. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts. All financial markets carry a high degree of risk and may not be suitable for many people. Historic performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance and the value, income or price of an investment may go down as well as up. Only speculate with money you can afford to lose.
