Investment principal on bonds can be eroded depending on sale price, market price or changes in redemption amounts. Care is required when investing in such instruments. Investments in foreign currencies involve the additional risk that the foreign currency might lose value against the investor’s reference currency. Equities are subject to market forces and hence fluctuations in value, which are not entirely predictable. The key risks of real estate investments include limited liquidity in the real estate market, changing mortgage interest rates, subjective valuation of real estate, inherent risks with respect to the construction of buildings and environmental risks (e.g., land contamination). Commodity investments and derivatives or indices thereof are subject to particular risks and high volatility. The performance of such investments depends on unpredictable factors such as natural catastrophes, climate influences, hauling capacities, political unrest, seasonal fluctuations and strong influences of rolling-forward, particularly in futures and indices. Emerging market investments usually result in higher risks such as political, economic, credit, exchange rate, market liquidity, legal, settlement, market, shareholder and creditor risks. Emerging markets are located in countries that possess one or more of the following characteristics: a certain degree of political instability, relatively unpredictable financial markets and economic growth patterns, a financial market that is still at the development stage or a weak economy.
