What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments. There is no guarantee that the Fund will meet its objective. For full details of all the risks applicable to this Fund, please refer to the “Risk Considerations” section of the current prospectus of Franklin LibertyShares ICAV.

  • The Fund intends to track the performance of the Underlying Index which is comprised of Chinese large and mid-cap stocks. Such assets have historically been subject to price movements due to such factors as general stock market volatility, changes in the financial outlook or fluctuations in currency markets. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate significantly over relatively short time periods.
  • Other significant risks include:
    Counterparty risk: the risk of failure of financial institutions or agents (when serving as a counterparty to financial contracts) to perform their obligations, whether due to insolvency, bankruptcy or other causes.
    Foreign Currency risk: the risk of loss arising from exchange-rate fluctuations or due to exchange control regulations.
    Emerging markets risk: the risk related to investing in countries that have less developed political, economic, legal and regulatory systems, and that may be impacted by political/economic instability, lack of liquidity or transparency, or safekeeping issues.
    Portfolio concentration risk: the risk that arises when a fund invests in relatively few holdings, few sectors or a restricted geographic area. Performance may be more volatile than a fund with a greater number of securities. 
    Secondary Market Trading risk: the risk that the shares purchased on the secondary market cannot usually be sold directly back to the Fund and that investors may therefore pay more than NAV per Share when buying shares or may receive less than the current NAV per Share when selling shares.
    Chinese Market risk: In addition to typical risks linked to Emerging Markets, investments in China are subject to economic, political, tax and operational risks specific to the Chinese Market. Please also refer to the prospectus for China QFII risk, Bond Connect risk and Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect and Shenzhen-Hong Kong Stock Connect risk.
