The simulated investment returns used in any graphs have inherent limitations. Experience has taught that there are frequently sharp differences between simulated investment returns and actual returns achieved by the actual implementation of an investment strategy and structure. There are numerous factors related to financial markets in general or to the implementation of a specific investment strategy and structure that cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of the simulated returns used in graphs, all of which can adversely affect the actual returns in the event of the actual implementation of the investment solution. The value of any investment and specifically the value of the investments discussed in this site can go up as well as down, as a result of changes in the values of the underlying investments or in the exchange rates of currencies. Past investment returns or portfolio benchmark returns are not necessarily indicative of future returns.
