Risk Disclosure
Risks Associated with Securities

Investors should note that all investments involve risks. Prices of securities may go up as well as down and may even become valueless. Investors should not only base on this marketing material alone to make any investment decision, but should read in detail the relevant Risk Disclosure Statements.

Investors should note that investing in different Renminbi-denominated securities and products involves different risks (including but are not limited to currency risk, exchange rate risk, credit risk of issuer / counterparty, interest rate risk, liquidity risk (where appropriate)).

The key risks of investing in the securities of Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect include:
Transactions under the Northbound or Southbound Trading of Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect will not be covered by the Investor Compensation Fund in Hong Kong.
Once the respective quota is used up, trading will be affected or will be suspended.
Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect will only operate on days when both markets are open for trading and when banks in both markets are open on the corresponding settlement days. Investors should take note of the days Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect is open for business and decide according to their own risk tolerance whether or not to take on the risk of price fluctuations in securities during the time when Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect is not trading.
When some stocks are recalled from the scope of eligible stocks for trading via Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect, the stocks can only be sold but NOT bought.
Investors will be exposed to currency risk if conversion of the local currency into RMB is required.
Risks Associated with Investment Fund

Investors should note that all investments involve risks (including the possibility of loss of the capital invested), price of fund units may go up as well as down and past performance is not indicative of future performance. Investors should read the relevant fund’s offering documents (including the full text of the risk factors stated therein) in detail before making any investment decision.

With respect to investing in RMB investment funds, non-RMB based investors are exposed to fluctuations in the RMB exchange rate against their base currencies. If investors wish or intend to convert the redemption proceeds (in RMB) into a different currency (for example Hong Kong dollars), they are subject to the relevant foreign exchange risk and may incur substantial capital loss from such conversion. There is no guarantee that RMB will not depreciate.

Investors should note that funds denominated in RMB involve RMB currency risk. Besides general exchange rate risks, RMB is subject to foreign exchange control by the PRC government. Furthermore, funds with underlying investments which are not denominated in RMB are subject to multiple currency conversion costs involved in making investments and liquidating investments, as well as the RMB exchange rate fluctuations and bid/offer spreads when assets are sold to meet redemption requests and other capital requirements (e.g. settling operation expenses). Apart from the RMB currency risk, investors should also note the other risk disclosures stated in the offering documents of the relevant funds, including but not limited to limited availability of underling investments denominated in RMB, credit risk of counterparties, interest rate risk, liquidity risk, possibility of not receiving RMB upon redemption etc (if applicable). If the funds invest in offshore RMB debt securities, investors should note that the quantity of debt securities issued outside mainland China that are available to the funds is currently limited, which may adversely affect the performance and return of the funds. This type of funds is denominated in RMB, but they are not protected deposit, they are not protected by the Deposit Protection Scheme in Hong Kong.

An ETF (“Exchange Traded Fund”) is different from a typical unit trust as it is listed on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited, and like other listed stocks, carry similar risks such as liquidity risk and risk of trading suspension. The market price per Unit could be significantly higher or lower than its net asset value per unit due to market demand and supply, liquidity and scale of trading spread in the secondary market and will fluctuate during the trading day.

Risk Associated with the MRF Arrangement
Quota restrictions:  The Mainland-Hong Kong Mutual Recognition of Funds (MRF) scheme is subject to an overall quota restriction. Subscription of units in the Fund may be suspended at any time if such quota is used up.
Failure to meet eligibility requirements:  If a Recognized Mainland Fund ceases to meet any of the eligibility requirements under the MRF, it may not be allowed to accept new subscriptions. In the worst scenario, the SFC may even withdraw its authorization for the Fund to be publicly offered in Hong Kong for breach of eligibility requirements. There is no assurance that the Fund can satisfy these requirements on a continuous basis.
Mainland tax risk:  The tax arrangement on Mainland tax relating to investment in a Recognized Mainland Fund is currently unclear. Investors may be subject to uncertainties in the Mainland tax liabilities.
Different market practices:  Market practices in the Mainland and Hong Kong may be different. In addition, operational arrangements of Recognized Mainland Funds and other public funds offered in Hong Kong may be different in certain ways. For example, a Recognized Mainland Fund may only accept subscriptions or redemption of units on a day when both the Mainland and Hong Kong markets are open, or it may have different cut-off times or dealing day arrangements versus other Hong Kong funds. Investors should ensure that they understand these differences and their implications.
Concentration Risk / Mainland Market Risk:  The Fund invests primarily in securities related to the Mainland market and may be subject to additional concentration risk. Compared to investment in other markets, investing in the Mainland may give rise to different risks including political, policy, tax, economic, foreign exchange, legal, regulatory and liquidity risks.

Risk Disclosure of FX and Precious Metal Margin Trading Services

Placing contingent orders, such as “stop-loss” or “stop-limit” orders, will not necessarily limit losses to the intended amounts. Market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders. You may be called upon at short notice to deposit additional margin funds. If the required funds are not provided within the prescribed time, your position may be liquidated. You will remain liable for any resulting deficit in your Account. You should therefore carefully consider whether FX and precious metal margin trading is suitable for you in light of your own financial position and investment objectives.

RMB Currency Risk

Renminbi ("RMB") is subject to exchange rate risk. Fluctuation in the exchange rate of RMB may result in losses in the event that the customer subsequently converts RMB into another currency (including Hong Kong Dollars). Exchange controls imposed by the relevant authorities may also adversely affect the applicable exchange rate. RMB is currently not freely convertible and conversion of RMB may be subject to certain policy, regulatory requirements and/or restrictions (which are subject to changes from time to time without notice). The actual conversion arrangement will depend on the policy, regulatory requirements and/or restrictions prevailing at the relevant time.
