Investment involves risk and the prices of securities products fluctuate. The prices of securities may move up or down, sometimes dramatically, and may become valueless. It is as likely that loss will be incurred rather than profit made as result of buying and selling investment. The risk of loss in financing a transaction by deposit of collateral is significant. You may sustain losses in excess of your cash and any other assets deposited as collateral with the licensed or registered person. You may be called upon at short notice to make additional margin or interest payments. If the required margin or interest payments are not made within the prescribed time, your collateral may be liquidated without your consent. Moreover, you will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your account and interest charged on your account.
The price of the warrants and Callable Bull/Bear Contracts ("CBBC") may move up or down rapidly and investors may sustain a total loss of their investment. Past performance of the underlying asset is not an indicator of future performance. You should ensure that you understand the nature of the warrants and CBBC and carefully study the risk factors set out in the relevant listing documents of the warrants and CBBC and where necessary, seek independent professional advice. Warrants that are not exercised will have no value upon expiry. CBBC has a mandatory call feature and may be terminated early, in such case, (i) in the case of Category N CBBCs, an investor will not receive any residual value and (ii) in the case of Category R CBBCs, the residual value may be zero.
Investors should bear in mind the key risks of ETFs which include but not limited to political, economic, currency, and other risks of a specific sector or market related to the underlying index; liquid secondary market may not exist for ETFs; changes in the net asset value of the ETFs may deviate from the performance of the tracking index, ETFs may invest in single country and sector; ETFs with tracking index relating to emerging markets may be subject to a greater risk of loss than investments in developed markets; and like all investments, an ETF is subject to the risk of change in policy of the reference market.
Leveraged and inverse products (L&I Products) are derivative products structured as funds. L&I Products are different from conventional ETFs. They do not share the same characteristics and risks. L&I Products are not designed for holding longer than one day, it is for short-term trading or hedging purposes. When L&I Products are held after a period of time, their return may deviate from and may be uncorrelated to the multiple (in the case of leveraged products) or the opposite (in the case of inverse products) of the return of the underlying index. Investors may suffer significant or even total losses. Trading L&I Products involves investment risk and are not intended for all investors. There is no guarantee of repaying the principal amount. Investors should read the relevant offering documents of Leveraged and inverse products and ensure they understand the key product features and related risks before making an investment.
