Investment Risks

Factors causing fluctuations in NAV and market price : NAV fluctuates due to price fluctuations in portfolio shares caused by stock market fluctuations,price fluctuations in portfolio public and corporate bonds caused by interest rate fluctuations,price fluctuations in portfolio REIT caused by REIT market fluctuations, exchange rate fluctuations, price fluctuations of stock index futures caused by stock market fluctuations, price fluctuation of stock index options caused by stock market fluctuation, and other factors. Furthermore, NAV is affected by changes in business and financial conditions of issuers of portfolio securities, etc., and external evaluation related thereto. In addition to NAV fluctuations, the market price is affected by market factors. All the gains and losses accrued to the trust assets are attributable to the investors. Therefore, the investors' investment principal is not guaranteed and a loss of principal may occur due to a loss caused by a decline in NAV, etc. Investment trusts are different from deposits and savings.
