General risk factors

  • Past performance is no guide to or guarantee of future returns. Please note that the price of units/shares and the income from them can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Income receivable may vary from the amount of income projected at the time of making the investment.
  • Exchange rate fluctuations may affect the value of an investment and any income derived from it.
  • If you exercise any right to redeem, you may not get back the amount initially invested if the share price has fallen since you invested.
  • There can be no guarantee that the tax position or proposed tax position prevailing at the time of an investment will not change.
  • Dividends and capital gains on shares issued in Federated Unit Trust and Federated International Funds plc may be subject to withholding taxes imposed by the countries in which each particular sub-fund invests.

This list of risk factors is not exhaustive and you should refer also to the prospectus and the simplified prospectus or key investor information document (as applicable) of Federated Unit Trust and Federated International Funds plc for additional risk factors pertaining to the relevant sub-fund of each Fund.

U.S. Persons

Federated Unit Trust and Federated International Funds plc are not registered as investment companies in the United States under the U.S. Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and their shares are not registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended ("Securities Act").

The information provided on the Site is not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person or entity in the United States, or in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation, or which would subject any of the Funds described herein, Federated (including its Affiliates) or any of their products or services to any registration, licensing or other authorisation requirement within such jurisdiction or country. However, it is contemplated that applications for units/shares in the Funds may be accepted at Our discretion from a limited number of qualified institutional buyers or accredited investors (as those terms are used in U.S. federal securities laws) in the United States, or in other jurisdictions where such sale would not violate local regulations, provided that the sale of units/shares to such investors is exempt from any registration requirements and that, in all events, there will be no adverse tax consequences to unitholders/shareholders of the Funds as a result of such sale.

We use the Non-Personal Data gathered from visitors to our Site in an aggregate form to improve our online service by, for example, remembering user preferences and online selections and to improve the performance of the Site and to get a better understanding of where our visitors come from. We collect log file information from all our visitors which record website usage and information such as the time, date, IP address, HTTP status and bytes sent and received.

In the event of a proposed or actual merger, sale or other transfer of all or the relevant portion of the assets or business of Federated or any entity controlling Federated, We reserve the right to transfer your Personal Data to the potential acquirer or successor for due diligence purposes and to complete the transaction. Such third party may only use your Personal Data for the purposes that you provided it to Us.

Your Personal Data is held on secure servers hosted by our Internet Service Provider.
