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). 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. Investments in hedge funds may involve significant risks, including the loss of the entire investment. The funds may be illiquid, as there is no secondary market for interests in the funds and none is expected to develop. There may be restrictions on transferring interests in the funds, investments may be highly leveraged and the investment performance may be volatile. Private equity is private equity capital investment in companies that are not traded publicly (i.e., are not listed on a stock exchange). Private equity investments are generally illiquid and are seen as a long-term investment. Private equity investments, including the investment opportunity described herein, may include the following additional risks: (i) loss of all or a substantial portion of the investor’s investment, (ii) investment managers may have incentives to make investments that are riskier or more speculative due to performance-based compensation, (iii) lack of liquidity as there may be no secondary market, (iv) volatility of returns, (v) restrictions on transfer, (vi) potential lack of diversification, (vii) high fees and expenses, (viii) little or no requirement to provide periodic pricing and (ix) complex tax structures and delays in distributing important tax information to investors.
